Dear Guests from the Medical School from Bjelovar!

     On Friday, January 15th, prof. Biljana Balenović and her students from Medical Shool from Bjelovar visited us at our Medica College Zagreb where we worked together on projects, which will be presented on this year's "Emedica".
   Upon arrival at the school the guests were greeted by our Principal Hrvoje Odak and the school psychologist Zlatka Kozjak-Mikić. The guests visited our shool labs accompanied by prof. Katica Anić. Then we went through the documents collected for the project “The Medical Service in Croatian Independece War 2”. It's the second year the students research the available information on the role the medical service had in their particular regions during the Independece War.
   The studens from Bjelovar showed us the actions during the Bjelovar's “D-Day” 29/September/1991, when 11 persons were killed by a huge explosion of weapons and ammunition storage "Barutana" and 100 people were processed by the local triage clinic, of which 59 were hospitalised. A number of enemy soldiers were also hospitalised. There were 10 teams of primary health care teams and additional nine teams in surrounding neighbourhoods, all took care about 66.000 inhabitants and displaced persons from other parts of Croatia. During the military operations the medical wards took care of a large number of wounded people (among which 191 wounded civilians) and the department of pathology received 150 dead people (of which 66 civilians).
   The students' reports were very touchy and we were impressed by the high level of organisation of Bjelovar's medical service.
   After reviewing the collected materials, we have harmonised them and agreed the final design of joint presentation.
    After work we had a good time getting to know each other better around a table full of food.

Visit of our Dear Guests from Slavonia!

     On Monday, September 28, 2015 our school, Medical College Zagreb, was visited by a nurse and professor Ana Takač from Medical school in Osijek and her students Melissa Lobb and Marinela Kupanovac. Their visit was primarily of a business character regarding the project "E-medica". The topic of the project for this year's "E-medica" is follow-up of the last year's study of the work of the medical corps during the Croatian Independence War.

   We gathered Medical Schools from Bjelovar, Dubrovnik, and Osijek and asked them to tell us the story of the war medical service in their respective cities.
   Guests from Osijek impressed us with an interesting interview with the head nurse of the war-time hospital in Osijek, Teresa Farkaš, as well as with the written testimony of dr. Peh who led the intensive care unit in the Osijek hospital. It was very moving and emotional.
   After reviewing the collected materials, we have discussed and agreed on further work on the project. It was important to visit the National Archives, where some interesting documents from the war and post-war period are kept.
   At the Medical Faculty in Zagreb, we found the archived documents with the names of patients from clinics and hospitals during the war time as victims of war or as victims of landmines in the post-war period. Together with the names and their diagnosis, the treatment protocols were also available to study. The high level of organization of the medical corps is seen in the approach to the collection, sorting and storing important medical records. This documentation is today a source of relevant information for projects on e-medica.
   After work, we had a visit to the zoo.
   In the evening, the headmaster Hrvoje Odak gave us tickets for the Croatian national theater where we watched the play Far Country by Austrian author Arthur Schnitzler.
