Dr Ozge Guzelburc

Mildura Cardioloyg welcomes their newest member to the team -Dr Ozge Guzelburc Cardiologist.
Dr Guzelburc was born in Turkey and undertook medical training at the Cerrahpasa Medical Faculty at Istanbul University before completing her cardiology course at the Siyaniersek Hospital Tertiary Cardio-Vascular Centre in Istanbul.
“In Turkey Cardiology it is a five-and-a-half-year course and a separate discipline to internal medicine.
“I went directly into cardiology training, but it also included training in branches of general medicine.”
Following the completion of her training, Dr Guzelburc worked at the Siyaniersek Hospital as a cardiology consultant.
“I also had a short stint of work experience at the Koc University Hospital’s Cardiology Department in Istanbul.”
So, what brought Dr Guzelburc and her family to Australia, and more specifically Mildura?
“We had been considering a move for a long time. I was in contact with Mildura Cardiology as far back as 2017 to explore possible opportunities to work with them,” she recalls.“The plan was that I was going to come to Mildura in 2019 but, for a variety family reasons, and then the pandemic, the move to Australia was delayed.
“I think Mildura is a beautiful city. Coming from Istanbul, I have really fallen in love with the quiet here, the calmness and the clean air.
“I also like the nice weather and love the heat!
“It is a well-organised, beautiful city and a good place to raise a child.”
Dr Guzelburc’s husband is a urologist, and the couple have an 11-year-old son. They too are now living in Mildura.
Dr Guzelburc says she is enjoying being part of the team at Mildura Cardiology.
“It’s a busy practice, and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
