Prof. Dr. Deniz Seyrek İntaş: “We are trying to teach our students from many parts of the world a sacred profession that serves both animal and human health.”
Near East University Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Dean Prof. Dr. Deniz Seyrek İntaş referred to the words of the leader of the Turkish Cypriots Dr. Fazıl Küçük and said: “Today is ours, and tomorrow is only our children’s with all their happiness.” She continued her speech saying; “It is a debt to raise them in the best way” and said, “In line with this principle, as Near East University Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, we are trying to teach our students from many parts of the world a sacred profession that serves both animal and human health.”

Prof. Dr. İntaş also said, “Knowledge is power. If you want to be strong, you have to be knowledgeable in your profession. A strong veterinary profession will add strength to our country in proportion to its knowledge. Getting the expertise of many veterinarians is the only way of our profession’s strong contribution to the country’s livestock economy. Individual veterinary clinics are finding it increasingly difficult to meet the needs of pet owners. In your profession, you should aim to cooperate and work as a team instead of focusing on meaningless competition. Many of the tasks related to our profession can only be carried out and concluded with strong teamwork. Therefore, you should definitely improve your good communication skills.”
