Prof. Dr. Berrin Pehlivan is a graduate of Hacettepe University’s School of Medicine. Having taken an interest in the field of oncology after being personally affected by cancer in the family, Pehlivan decided to study Radiation Oncology at Boston University, where she carried out her placement. After completing her residency in radiation oncology at Hacettepe University, she spent many years working overseas.

Pehlivan constantly improves her knowledge in the field by researching the use of global technologies in the fight against cancer, and between 2004 and 2009 took part in many scientific studies in France and Switzerland. Continuing her work at the European Cancerology Program in France, Lausanne University’s Department of Radiation Oncology, the Paul Scherrer Institute Center for Proton Therapy in Villigen, Switzerland, and the Proton Therapy Center in Orsay, France, Pehlivan then returned to Turkey to share her first-hand experience in her home country.

After further research at Başkent University, Akdeniz University’s School of Medicine, and the Memorial Health Group, she established the Radiation Oncology Department at Medstar Antalya Hospital.

Pehlivan has been responsible for many articles, scientific publications and projects in the national and international arena. Until the end of 2018, she worked on research programs at Medical Park Bahçelievler Hospital, Medical Park Göztepe Hospital, and Altınbaş University. Prof. Dr. Berrin Pehlivan currently trains doctors of the future, working as a faculty member of Bahçeşehir University, and continues her work at her private practice. She is the author of a book on her specialization entitled 50 Soruda Kanser (Cancer in 50 Questions).
