Training of specialists for burn care in Turkey
In Turkey, six specialized burn units are referral centres and 107 hospitals accept burn victims, although most of these have no specific departmental organization and proper facilities for care of burn patients. Burn facilities in Turkey are mainly directed and run by general surgeons and some by plastic and reconstructive surgeons.
