Exchange students of Zagreb Health School and Bjelovar Nursing School
on the project "Hermaphrodites"

   On Friday 15 January 2016 early in the morning, we students of Nursing school Bjelovar, Zlata Balog, Eleonora Dreta, Jelena Martinčić and Matej Ambrozić, and our mentor, Biljana Balenović, set out from Bjelovar to Zagreb. The reason for our trip was students cooperation and exchange under the E-medica Project. Together with the students from Zagreb, we collaborated on two subjects: Hermaphrodites and Medical Corps in Croatian War of Independence.
   In a pleasant atmosphere and good company, we arrived in Zagreb very quickly and got stuck in a traffic jam of a big city. Yet, nothing was in the way to get to the previously arranged interview with a children's endocrinologist, Miroslav Dumić, PhD. Together with the collaborators from Zagreb, we were given a warm reception in his home. He dedicated his precious time to us in order to answer numerous questions connected with the subject of Hermaphrodites. Dr. Dumić is a word-renowned expert for the chosen subject. During the interview, we got a more complete image of our project, and his explanations and examples gave us better insight into problems, so all unclear issues became clear. In the end of our visit, we thanked the doctor for the time he dedicated to us and headed for our next destination – Zagreb Health School.
   Apart from a warm welcome given by our fellow-students, the headteacher and other teachers, we were shown around the whole school by our hosts. Later we got down to work to bring our project to an end. After so many awarenesses, considerations and changes, a turn for some rest came. Our host treated us to lunch and pleasant company. Of course, a few photographs were taken (please, find them attached). In the end of the day, full of deep impressions and strenghtened by fellowship, we came back to our little town.
   Now, we are looking forward to sharing our knowledge about this ₺most complex issue in medicine₺ (according to doctor Dumić's words) with our fellow-students during the presentation of our project at E-medica meetings in Tuhelj.
