   The idea of the project came from the wish of the wider public to get acquainted with Chron's disease especially among the younger populations. Among the patients, there is also a part of school children and youth, which points to the need for education on the symptoms and signs of illness that often remain unrecognized for a long time. When the disease is diagnosed it is of particular interest to have the patient face his condition and accept the limitations that the disease brings. Involvement in everyday school and leisure activities is difficult because of rigid rules and misunderstanding of peers and the environment. Through the implementation of the project, we aim to connect students with members of the Association of affected. Through the implementation of the project, we aim to connect students with members of the Association of Affected, Health and Social Workers who through lectures, workshops will visit their knowledge and enable the acceptance of the patients in the center where they live, learn and work.

   We showed our guests around the school and then we had lunch in a school canteen. In the afternoon we gathered at the nearby dormitory and then went sightseeing together.
   A local tourist guide took us around the town. The evening was spent together, getting to know each other and having a good time.
   On Tuesday we went on a trip to a small town of Ormož, where we had the opportunity to see an institution for mentally ill people. Later that day, we went to Velika Nedelja, a nearby small town and saw the local sights – the church, the watch tower and the local theatre.
   On Wednesday we had practical lessons on some wards in the city hospital. The chief nurse greeted us and showed us the Emergency unit. In the afternoon we had some free time together, just having fun.

   On Thursday our Croatian friends attended lessons at our school. After lunch it was time for some sporting activities on Pohorje. It was snowing and it was like a winter wonderland.
   TThe time passed by fast and on the last day a videoconference with the students of Medical school in Zadar was held. We were sad knowing that our visit came to an end.

   And more about project work …

   And now a few words about my assignment. I and my friend are currently working on a new topic – Rare diseases. We are going to introduce our work in Terme Tuhelj, where the next E-medica days will take place. I am very much looking forward to this experience, not only because we are given an opportunity to meet friends from another countries, but also in some valuable knowledge. Since this is my last contribution to this project, the task I'm working on is really demanding and interesting. But more about it on our next visit….
     Best regards from our (and your) Maribor.

Our impressions from Maribor

   This year Zadar - Maribor student exchange went by perfectly. It is my first experience and I must say that I am extremely satisfied with what I saw beginning from their school system all the way to themselves. It is suprising for me how they function, how they work and have that special energy in their school.
   Whole exchange programme was excellent but I want to emphasise students who led us through it all. With their students we have started friendship which we are planning to contuinue in future.
   Exchange like this teaches us a lot, we had different experiences and we were together whenever it was possible. It was experience to remember and I hope we shall meet again.

Ivana Vazgeč

   Journey to Maribor was very nice experience for me. I met a lot of new people and visited many places and cities. I would definitely like to repeat all that so I hope for a new visit.

Karla Ivić

   When we went for a travel to Maribor, all the way I was thinking how is it going to be, will coleagues from Slovenia like us? At our arrival excitement was visible on our faces, we had expected a lot of company, fun and laughter and it must be admitted that we got more than that. For a long time we shall remember time which we spent with our Slovenian friends. Every moment was filled, we have visited a lot of interesting locations, we got acquainted with Maribor, we spent time together and exchange our practice experiences.
   We all hope we shall be able to return hospitality to our dear coleagues and that they will keep Zadar in their hart as much as we do Maribor.

Karolina Miloš

   Everybody were very sociable and they hosted us nicely. They were with us whenever they could, they went to the city with us and outside in the evening. I was pleasantly surprised with everything our friends prepeared for us and I hope I shall participate in E-medica projects again.

Video-conference exchange in the project ''The Life With Crohn's Disease"
(January 24th, 2019 )


   On Thursday, January 24th, 2019 as part of the "Life With the Crohn's Disease" project, we had a Skype video-conference. Beside us, mentor Sonja Šare with the coordinator Tanja Serdarević from Secondary Medical School Ante Kuzmanića Zadar, together with mentor Sanja Premec and coordinator Kornelija Kristina Petak from Secondary School Maruševec, were present as well.

    During the conference, we were analyzing phases of the project and reflected on the tasks already completed.
   In May 2018, on the occasion of the World Day of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, we held the actions, lectures and gatherings on which we participated. Students from Maruševec participated in the public "Days of Blue Iris" for the prevention and fight against colon cancer organized by the ILCO Association from Varaždin. We contacted the Department of Public Health of Varaždin County about the statistics of Crohn's disease.
   During the October, we conducted a brief survey among students of first and second classes of general medical nurse who were not in touch with the professional subject yet. After the examination we held a presentation on the subject of Crohn's disease.
The results of the survey were handled by students from the Zadar school. We are currently in the process of creating brochures.

Students impressions…..

   This exchange went by even better than we expected. We tried to be good hosts and welcome our Slovenians as they deserve. With much laughter and good jokes we created beautiful memories which we shall remember for the rest of our life.
   Those five magnificent days passed by very quickly but they made us closer and taught us a lot. We have created beautiful friendships and once again proved good collaboration between our two schools.

Leonarda Šarić, Secondary Medical School Ante Kuzmanića - Zadar

Dear hosts,
   I'd like to thank you for five wonderful days. We really enjoyed your company and also going around your beautiful town of Zadar. We are already looking forward to your visit in Maribor. Thank you for your hospitality and everything else.
Best regards

Esmeralda Kovačević i Amir Alić

   My expectations before taking part in an exchange program were great, because I had heard so much about the program from other students who took part in it. But my experience was beyond any expectations. What impressed me most was your kindness, the variety of the program and of course, swimming in the sea. I hope to get another chance to visit you again.


    Having the opportunity to take part in this exchange program was a great chance for me. It was a truly wonderful experience. I learned so many new things, gained new experiences and saw the sights and the beauty of Zadar. I enjoyed the company and kindness of your students and teachers. It is my greatest wish to see you again next year.


   Last week we took part in an exchange program between our school and Medical school in Zadar. This long-term partnership has had a strong positive effect on both teachers and students. This was our first time in E-medica and it was a wonderful experience. Our hosts spent a lot of time with us, despite all their duties and obligations. Apart from a warming welcome, the excursion, practical work in the hospital, the tour of Zadar; the best and the most memorable things were the friendships we have made. I sincerely hope these friendships will last for many years.
   We wish to thank all our hosts again and we are already looking forward to seeing you again.

Alma Mešić i Vedran Kresojević, Srednje zdravstvene in kozmetične škole Maribor

   Visiting Zadar was the time of my life. Our hosts were very kind and enthusiastic. We all got along very well. The program itself was interesting and well-organized. If possible, I'd go again.

Tjaša Draškovič

   This was my second time in E-medica exchange program.
   It was a wonderful chance to see our friends again. Each day we spent there was special. On the first day, we did a sightseeing tour around the town of Zadar.
   What I liked most was that we could do some practical work in a home for elderly people. This gave us an opportunity to see our colleagues at work and learn some new practices, which I hope we'll be able to try in our hospital in Maribor.
   As a fourth-grade student I know that this is my last visit to Zadar as a student, but I'll definitely come back as a tourist and as a friend.

Benjamin Habinc

   What can I say? This exchange program is one in a life-time experience, one can never forget. The positive energy and a bond that connects Croatian and Slovenian students is extraordinary. This exchange program is more than just a project; it means friendship, partnership and love.

    We arrived on a Monday morning, a bit tired and sleepy. In the afternoon we went around the old town, on Tuesday we attended classes at school, on Wednesday we took a trip to a lovely Vransko lake. On Thursday we did some work in the hospital and in an old people's home. On Friday, we sadly said goodbye and returned home. Our friends from Zadar are coming in January to visit us here in Maribor. I am very much looking forward to their visit, to meeting new friends, showing them around Maribor and having a lot of fun. The students and the teachers, a wonderful team, reunited again. I would also like to thank our teachers Ana Mlakar and Vanja Kancler, who enjoyed our trip as much as we did, if not even more. See you soon!

Exchange of strudents from Zagreb, Šibenik and Zadar in Belgrade


   In a pleasant summer atmosphere, within the international project "E-medica", from 19-21.9.2018. a visit was made to four medical schools in the Republic of Croatia, the capital of the Republic of Serbia, Belgrade, and the Dental school and Pharmacy Physiotherapy School, which are located in the Zvezdara Municipality.

   On the first working day, the director of the Dental school, Biljana Blagojević Sedlar and the director of the Pharmacy-Physiotherapy School, Biljana Vukosavljević, welcomed all 1st exchange participants, presenting the activity, the peculiarity and the activities of the leading schools.

In the first exchange was:

- School for Nurses Mlinarska from Zagreb, mentor Đurđica Stanešić with students Marija Timko and Gabrijel Džambo
- School for Nurses Vrapče from Zagreb, mentor Aleksandra Vidoša with students Karla Anić and Margaret Bakonji,
- Medical school from Šibenik, director Aleksandra Acalin, coordinator Snježana Žaja and mentor Antonija Žaja with students Nikolina Lugović and Josipa Grcić.
- Secondary Medical School Ante Kuzmanića from Zadar, mentor Linda Bakotić with students Lucija Veršić and Ivona Knežević,
- Dental School from Belgrade, coordinator Maja Vračar and mentors Ana Gajić, Nataša Milanović, Iva Pilipović and Tomislav Alavanja, and psychologist Marijana Peulić with students Anja Marković, Miljana Todorović, Sandra Tomic, Jana Nedeljkovic, Iva Nasovic, Katarina Rankovic and Jovan Komatina,
- Pharmacy-Physiotherapist School from Belgrade, Coordinator Biljana Vasić and mentors, Sanja Vukov, Maja Pavlović and Ivan Pašić with the students Petar Urošević, Marija Nikolić, Ivana Marković, Marina Stepanoski, Nina Đurić, Filip Sedlarević, Tara Veselinović and Branislav Beković.

   The first working day nwas continued by introducing schools through video and conversation, visiting the host school, and after that, the students worked on projects:
"Burn out Syndrome", "Vaccination whether or not", "Innovative therapy in carcinoma treatment" and "Chron's disease".
   Director of the Šibenik Medical School, Aleksandra Acalin, thanked students for hospitality at Belgrade schools and invited students and teachers to be more active in the work, as it turned out that the various problems that students explore have the effect on their future psycho-physical development, which they have to decide on their own mature stances and new knowledge that they are gaining during these projects.
   After the work, in the evening, students and teachers used to learn about and exchange experiences and examples of good practice, but also for Belgrade and a little relaxation in Belgrade's Skadarlija.

    The second day of visit was used to visit the city Zvezdara municipality and the president of the same, Miloš Ignjatović who supported the project and voiced hope that the project will continue to expand. He also stressed that he understands the enthusiasm and the desire of educators to give such projects the utmost attention as they relate to the young and the old, and the issue he deals with describes the necessity of monitoring all changes in society that concern health. The president said he would help the schools in the realization of this project by putting them into an annual distribution plan of municipal funds.
   Đurđica Stanišić, a mentor of the medical school Mlinarska, has drawn attention to the importance of research work for students during which they acquire the predispositions to deal with the scientific-research work that students are doing in the master's studies.
   After a visit to the municipality, guests visited the Star Observatory, where the city council was named. The telescope in the Observatory weighs more than 1.000 kilograms and the telescope lens is roughly 500 ki8lograms.
   After the observatory, teachers and students visited the Museum of Nikola Tesla, where they had a chance to take a 15-minute movie about the life of Nikola Tesla, and then to feel the power of Tesla's finds in her body.
   Thanks to everyone who participated in the exchange, on the wonderful energy, the positive atmosphere, but also the desire for these two days to be unforgettable. Thanks to the founders and supporters of the project "E-medica", we can contribute to increasing the knowledge of our students and teachers, but also the ability to gain some new friendships and new experiences.

Kindly, warmly, and emotional greeting from Belgrade!
