The group consisted of a pediatrician, family physician, anesthesiologist, ophthalmologist, urologist, cardiologist, gynecologist and three dental surgeons and was separated into four groups: urology, gynecology, dentistry and pediatrics-circumcision.

The Global Doctors Movement (Küresel Doktorlar Hareketi), which has 20,000 members and many subsidiary associations across Turkey, has carried out more than 300,000 medical check-ups and performed some 15,000 surgeries in more than 40 countries in the past couple of years.
