Professor Nevzat Tarhan was born in Merzifon, Turkey, in 1952. He graduated from Kuleli Military High School (1969) and İstanbul University Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty (1975). After the GATA Internship as well as Cyprus and Bursa obligatory medical service, he became a Psychiatrist in GATA (Gulhane Military Medical Academy) in 1982. He became Assistant Professor (1988) and Associate Professor (1990) in GATA Haydarpaşa after serving as a doctor in Erzincan and Çorlu Hospitals. He served as a Clinical Director. 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 1996-1999. He retired on his own terms. In 1998, he represented Turkey in Memory Center of America.

Professor Tarhan is a scientist, who has carried the outcomes of his academic life activity to his personal and social life. He transferred his psychiatric expertise, which he has pursued over the years with a great effort, to more than 150 research articles published in national and international refereed journals, more than 40 of them were published in SCI class journals, and 29 monographs. His works have been presented in media both in a written and in a visual variant, thus, he has attracted a large audience in Turkey.

He carries out his work with great seriousness and precision. The main factor underlying his success must be his diligence and his philosophy of life and his supramind (metacognitive, spiritual) perspective. His point of view towards life in general, which is not limited to physical existence, but also covers both the material world and the afterlife, stems from the awareness that he is in the presence of his Creator, while performing anything. It means that his beliefs are based on research, observation, and proof. They are presented to the readers by means of scientific testimony of the universe and by establishing the connection to the characteristics of God Almighty reflected in the universe. He is one of the rare scientists, who has succeeded in explaining religion and science in a supportive way. In addition, he succeeded in reducing the impact of scientists' identities on his life, he undertakes the duty of carrying, transferring the truth he learned to others.

The source of this different perspective is the Quran, which has guided his life since his youth. During his university years, like many young people, who ask existential questions, he has always tried to find the ansers to such questions as " Why is there the evil?", "Is there life after death?", "How can we feel content both physically and mentally", questioned “Incidental Existence", the meaning of life, the need for religion, Darwin Theory, the psychology of believing in something. He shared those topics with his readers and provided proofs and scientific researches' results as well as the explanations from the Quran. 

As Professor Tarhan closely observes the social life from the psychiatrist's perspective, he makes an accurate analysis of the social life and mentions the importance of "Community Psychology" in every media platform.

Professor of Psychiatry Nevzat Tarhan, whose characteristics are not limited to what is written above, has always targeted investment in people and used his material-spiritual resources for this certain purpose. He donated his achievements to the İDER foundation and founded Üsküdar University. According to the latest student demographic statistics, the number of students in Üsküdar University increased up to 20,000 in 8 years. 

Currently, he is the Founder and President of non-profit Üsküdar University and serves as a mentor to NPİSTANBUL Brain Hospital, by presiding as Chairman of the Board of Directors, which is the first private neuropsychiatry hospital in Turkey.

His books have sold more than 1 million copies. Professor Tarhan completed 135 research papers, more than 50 of them were indexed in WoS journals. WOS Google Scholar data revealed his academic performance according to May 2020 Citation: 1478 | h-index: 20 | i10-index: 37. 

Nevzat Tarhan speaks English and German. He has two children. The family tree, dating back to 1400 years, was published in 2017 as a book.

Merhabalar Nevzat Bey, Ben Şubat ayı boyunca NP Beyin hastanesinde misafiriniz olmuştum. Kendimi bildim bileli, hatırladığım en erken hatıralarımda bile yer eden OKB canavarı ile savaşmaktaydım. Şu an 23 yaşındayım ve yaklaşık 17 senedir sayısız psikolog ve psikiyatrist gördüm. Çeşitli ilaçlar kullandım, terapiler gördüm. Fakat maalesef geçtiğimiz aya kadar bir ilerleme kaydedemedim. Sizin de bildiğiniz üzere çok zor bir hastalıktır OKB; insanı mantıksız bulmasına rağmen belirli davranışlara, korkunç düşüncelere ve hislere hapseder. İnsan hayatının en önemli değişkeni zamanını çalar. Benim de 23 senedir yokuş aşağı giden bu hastalıkla savaşım vardı. Kendimle açıkçası bu uzun ve zor yoldaki direncim konusunda gurur duyuyorum ancak insan bir yerden sonra "Bu hep böyle mi gidecek?" ümitsizliğine kapılıyor ve ben de bu noktada hastaneye yatış kararını aldım. Gördüğüm sayısız psikiyatri yollarından sizinkini seçmemdeki en büyük neden hastalığımın ciddiyetini ve bilimselliğini ne kadar net gördüğünüzü ve bu vizyonunuzu sezmiş oluşumdu. Hastanede tam 25 gün kaldım. OKB ile geçirdiğim 23 yılı düşününce bu 25 gün belki de hiçbir şey. Maddi durumumuz yeterince olmamasına rağmen ailemin sonsuz desteği, motivasyonum, değerli doktorlarım ve sizin vizyonunuz sayesinde bu hastalığı yenme yolunda bu kısacık 25 günde sonsuz yol katettim. Gündelik zamanımın yarısından fazlasını çalan, beni ailemden uzaklaştırmak zorunda bırakan ve kendime küstüren bu hastalığı tedavi ettiğiniz için size bu teşekkürü borç biliyorum. 2 gün önce Oxford Üniversitesi'nden Sosyal Veri Bilimi dalında yüksek lisans kabulümü aldım. Bu başarı hepimizin başarısı. Kendime artık "Bu hep böyle mi gidecek?" diye sorduğumda suratımı bir gülümseme kaplıyor. Değerli doktorlarıma ve size sonsuz teşekkür ederim, Çok ciddi bir kalp ameliyatından çıkıp cerraha sarılan "Hayatımı kurtardınız!" diyen hasta kadar minnettarım size.

Let Us Call You
