IPOS Member Profile: Zeynep Kotan (Turkiye)

15 Dec 2023 9:46 AM | John Chagnon (Administrator)

I am Zeynep Kotan. I have been working as a psychiatrist since 2009. I worked as a psychiatrist in Ankara Abdurrahman Yurtaslan Oncology Training and Research Hospital between 2012-2019. We established a psychooncology department there where we introduced consultation liason service to Palliative Care, Medical Oncology, Hematology, Surgery and other medical departments. We conducted group therapies for breast cancer patients. I got my associate professor degree in 2007. I was assigned in the secretary and organization comittee of several psycooncology symposiums. I had a chance to work in Consultation Liason Deparment of Ankara University Psychiatry Unit where I had the opportunity to work with psychiatric issues related with diverse medical conditions including cancer. I have been working as a psychiatrist in my private office since 2020. I and my colleagues established Ankara Psychooncology Association in October 2022. We have done several educational activities towards professionals involved in oncology and towards cancer patients and their relatives. We have recently been involved psychooncology issues in disasters after the February 2023 earthquake disaster in Turkey. I am also a psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapist and interested in psychoanalytic issues in cancer patients. I am glad to be a part of IPOS. It is a big chance to have the opportunity to learn from colleagues interested in psychooncology from all around the world.
