FELS601 PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE 3 3 0 7
This course will follow three main paths: Firstly it will introduce philosophy to doctoral students. The meaning of philosophy, its scope, its sub-branches and its different schools will be the subject topic of the first weeks. Then the course will focus on the relation of philosophy with the sources of knowledge and different sciences. Here, Rationalism, Empiricism and Intuitionism will be covered during the following weeks. In the remaining weeks the course will concentrate on philosophy of science and scientific ethics. Logical positivism, paradigm changes, falsificationism, the questions of “what is science”, “what is pseudo-science?”, “what is the relation between theory and reality?” are amongst topics that will be covered. Finally, the course will concentrate on ethical theories and will particularly cover scientific ethics.
FTRE600 DISSERTATION 0 0 0 165
PhD dissertation work consists of determining a research topic in the field of study, defining the research problem, writing appropriate research questions and hypotheses, determining the research method for finding answers to the research questions, collecting and analyzing data, writing findings, discussions and implications. Prior to the dissertation work a proposal has to be prepared and presented to the dissertation monitoring committee consisting of three members including the supervisor. After the completion of the dissertation the candidate defends it in front of a jury of five members including the monitoring committee. The dissertation should contribute to the field of study and for setting up a jury the candidate must publish an article from his/her dissertation in a journal indexed by the SSCI, AHCI or SCI.

FTRE690 SEMINAR 0 0 0 8
This course is designed to help develop a broad and unified perspective on research, research ethics and plagiarism, literature review, research methods and design, report writing and effective presentation techniques in health sciences. For this purpose, each student will be required to do literature review on a topic related to his/her academic background and interest. As a result of their literature review the students will specify relevant further research areas. Each student will also prepare a report about the studies done so far in the topic and will cover methods used, findings, discussion and implications. Each student will share his/her report with other students in the course by doing a presentation followed by a discussion.
FTRE695 QUALIFYING EXAMINATION 0 0 0 15
The qualifying exam is to determine whether the student who completed the courses and seminar has a base for scientific research related to the basic subjects and concepts. A student can take the qualifying exam at the most twice after completing the seminar and credited courses. The qualifying exam consists of two parts: written and oral; and are held on the days and times announced by the graduate committee, within the semester following the completion of the credited courses and the seminar. The jury of the qualifying exam evaluates the success of the student. The student who fails the qualifying exam can take to it for the second time in the following semester.

FTRE615 EXERCISE TESTING AND TRAINING 3 3 0 7
The aim of the course is to gain knowledge and skills on the importance of exercise therapy in physiotherapy and rehabilitation, the place of exercise tests and training in the clinical decision making process, the exercise tests used in physiotherapy and rehabilitation, the basics and the development and application of exercise approaches based on evidence. Within the scope of the course, classification of exercise, its effects on organ systems, principles, exercise testing and training principles in acute, subacute and chronic periods, planning of exercise programs for problems in different body regions and application of exercise tests, exercise indications and contraindications, exercise electrocardiography, clinical problem solving and special exercise applications in different clinical situations, exercise prescription in special cases, cardiovascular responses to exercise will be examined.
FTRE607 PHYSIOTHERAPY AND REHABILITATION IN FOOT PATHOLOGIES 3 3 0 7
The aim of the course is to provide students with knowledge and skills about physiotherapy assessment and planning of treatment programs by examining the pathomechanics of congenital and subsequently developed foot problems. Within the scope of the course, functional anatomy and biomechanics of the foot, pathomechanics of congenital deformities, shock absorbing properties of the foot, evaluation of the foot and recommendations for suitable shoes, evaluation and treatment of foot deformities in neurological diseases, physiotherapy and rehabilitation applications in systemic diseases, trauma. Appropriate assessment and treatment approaches for ankle problems, ankle reconstruction, arthrodesis, arthroplasties and its treatment, physiotherapy and rehabilitation practices for functional independence in foot and lower extremity dysfunctions due to traumatic, congenital, metabolic and other causes will be examined.
