He was born in Merzifon in 1952. He graduated from Military High School (1969) and İstanbul University Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty (1975). After the GATA internship as well as Cyprus and Bursa continental service, he became a Psychiatrist in GATA in 1982.

He became Colonel (1993) and Professor (1996). He was an academic member at Yüzüncü Yıl University and an expert at the Forensic Medicine Institute between the years of 1996-1999. He retired at his own will. In 1998, he was the representative of Turkey in Memory Center of America.
Prof. Nevzat Tarhan is a scientist who has carried the results to his personal and social life. He transferred his knowledge of psychiatric expertise, which he has pursued over the years with a great effort and researches, to over 100 research articles published in national and international refereed journals, 40 of which were in SCI class journals.Due to his works presented in visual and written media, he has reached a large amount of audience in Turkey. He carries out his work with great seriousness and precision. He is a person who spends the same amount of effort and gives the same amount of care from a small business to a large international project. He starts the projects with a student responsibility and excitement during the research phase and he presents his knowledge, experience and know - how accumulated over many years in the projects. He is able to present his experience to all his business partners with the support of knowing human psychology well.
Other than his scholarly nature in publications and books, his other characteristic is the identity of investor and manager.
He transforms all the knowledge and achievements he has gained from free medicine into health and education. Established in 1997, İDER has created and is currently managing two institutions from 'zero' through the so-called "Human Values and Mental Health" foundation.
The first is the second NPISTANBUL Brain Hospital of 236 beds in Europe, which has now received JCI accreditation. The second one is Üsküdar University, which has 16,000 students and works in the field of health and behavior sciences. The establishment and continuation of these institutions, including the state, received no infrastructural and financial support. He established the incubation center named "Brainpark" as Technopark. It is in the organization of the N20 (neuroscience 20) meetings held in G20 from 2015. It specializes in Neuroscience as a scientific research and R & D center.
As Tarhan closely observes the social life due to being a psychiatrist, he makes an accurate analysis of the social life and touches on the importance of "Community Psychology" in every media platform. In addition, there are active membership associations and activities for non-profit, social responsibility associations.
His features are not limited to the ones mentioned above. Prof. Nevzat Tarhan has always targeted investment in people and used his material-spiritual resources towards this direction. The majority of the society witness all that is done. He expresses through his actions that he will continue the same objectives until the end of his life, under his approach of the faith.
Currently, he is the Founder and President of the Üsküdar University and carries out the NPİSTANBUL Brain Hospital Chairman of the Board of Directors, which is Turkey's first neuropsychiatry hospital.
