Students from Medical College Zagreb visited Medical School Varazdin


   On September 17, 2014, Paula Vucinovec and Tomislav Mrla, students from the 4. a class of the programm medical laboratory technicians, and their mentor, Maja Gregoric, visited Medical School Varaždin. Together with the project leader "Blood types, diseases and diet", Natasa Vukovic, mag. med. bioch., and students Anja, Andrea and Sara, they discussed the project and worked on a final presentation.
    Students exchanged experiences and commented on and coordinated results of surveys on dietary habits carried out in Zagreb, Varazdin, Split and Bjelovar. The hosts showed us the school and the General Hospital Varazdin, its Department of transfusiology, where Dr. Gordana Jaklin, spec. of transfusiology, gave us a short lecture on blood types and the impact of blood donation, and showed us the department of transfusiology. We were also given the opportunity to determine our blood types and learn the process of blood type determination.
   After the visit to the hospital and a short meeting with Mirjana Grabar-Kruljac, the principal of Medical School Varaždin, some pleasant time was spent socializing over lunch and sightseeing in Varaždin!

Exchange students in the project "Blood groups, nutrition and disease by blood groups"

   On the 17th of September of this year, Medical School Varaždin, as the participant on the project Blood types, nutrition and diseases related to blood types welcomed the students Paula and Tomislav along with their mentor Maja Gregurić from Medical College Zagreb. The host students, Anja, Andrea and Sara, and their mentor NatašaVuković, successfully carried out the meeting even though the guests from Medical school Split were not able to come.
   The first part was held in our school in good company and discussing about the project. The students and mentors exchanged experiences, discussed and agreed on result of the survey on eatinghabits carried out on the examinees from Zagreb, Varaždin, Split and Bjelovar.
   After exchanging thoughts, we showed our guests around the school and went to the General hospital Varaždin, to the department of transfusiology where dr. GordanaJaklin was waiting for us. She held a short lecture on blood types, the importance of donating blood, and at the end she showed us the transfusiology department and explained how it functions.
   Not only that we had the opportunity to determine our blood types but actually got to know the principles of doing that. After visiting the hospital and having a nice conversation with the headmaster, Mirjana Grabar Kruljac, we took our guests to the new student canteen and concluded the whole meeting with a pleasant walk and sightseeing.
   The time passed by quickly but it gave us the motivation for further encounters and the opportunity for arranging our next activities.
