PROJECT GOAL
    The idea for the project came from the desire to connect literature and the development of medicine through history. Our wish is to stimulate reading among our students, through which they would learn about the historical development of medicine, and study certain illnesses that were an inspiration for writing literature. Some literary works were the first to describe certain diseases and symptoms, which is why the diseases got their names from books or literary characters (C. Dickens ''The Pickwick Papers''; R.Raspe ''Unbelievable adventures of Baron Muenchhausen'').
With the implementation of this project our aim is to achieve interdisciplinary connection between vocational subjects and general educational subjects (history, literature, geography, ethics, psychology, pharmacology…) In this way we would be able to incorporate the topic of the project as the main component of the syllabus of all the subjects.
In a small number of literary works we find disease as the theme of the work, however, it is found in many famous works, where it works its way through the plot, defines the characters and presents life at that point in time.
Diseases that are mostly represented in literary works are insanity (Shakespeare: ''Macbeth'', ''Hamlet''; M. Cervantes: ''Don Quijote''; J.W. Geoethe: ''The Sorrows of Young Werther''), the plague (G. Boccacio ''Decameron''), cholera (T.Mann: ''Death in Venice'', G.G.Marquey: ''Love in the Time of Cholera''), tuberculosis (A,Dumas: ''The Lady of the Camellias''; Emily Bronte: ''Wuthering Heights'').

Third exchange of students on the project "Medicine Through Literature" in Sremska Mitrovica
(February 28, - March 1, 2019)

 

   The third student exchange, that is a part of the E-medica project "Medicine Through Literature", was held at Medical School "Draginja Nikšić" in Sremska Mitrovica on the 28th February and the 1st March.
 
   Students and mentors from three different schools participated in the exchange: Secondary School Bedekovčina: students Kruno Galic and Mihael Mikobušec and their mentor Rafaela Božić; School for Nurses Mlinarska with students Nikolina Ban and Brigita Bajzek and their mentor Suzana Đanić; Secondary Medical School Ante Kuzmanića - Zadar with students Lorena Italo and Mia Iveljić and their mentor Anita Basioli; and the host Medical School Draginja Nikšić, Sremska Mitrovica with students Mina Vuletić and Natalija Bačko and their mentor Branislav Vuletić.


 
 
   The reception at the Medical School “Draginja Nikšić”in Sremska Mitrovica had a rich and diverse program, and we were warmly welcomed by the director and staff. After a short break and refreshments the students compared reports on the work they have done since the last exchange that was in Zagreb. The reports were followed by the applied part of the project, that the students obviously enjoyed.
   After that we visited the City Hall where we were welcomed by the President of the City Councile of Sremska Mitrovica, Tomislav Janković, to whom we presented the E-medica project. We presented the schools and students, and told him our impressions.
   
Later on, we had lunch at a raft restaurant on the river Sava, a short boat ride under the longest pedestrian river bridge in Europe, continued rehearsing the applied part of the project and had a tour of the school.
    After that we went to the dormitory, had a short break and dinner.

    The next day, we had an early start, we had the finishing rehearsal of the applied part of the project, made presentations and made arrangements about the costumes and music. After that we had a tour of the city centre, Imperial palace of Srem and The Museum of Srem. The trip was regally ended by a visit to the equestrian club Sirmium where the students and mentors had the pleasure to indulge in riding horses, riding in chariots, accordion music, dancing and a feast.

    Our goodbye was touching but fulfilled by happiness and the promise of a quick reunion at the next E-medica exchange.

Second Student Exchange in Project "Medicine Through Literature" 
(December 5, 2018)

 

 
 
   On Wednesday, 5th of December 2018, the second student exchange of December was completed within the project “Medicine Through Literature” in School for nurses Mlinarska. Our school hosted students and mentors from the High School Bedekovcina, Secondary Medical School Ante Kuzmanica Zadar and Medical School “Draginja Niksic” Sremska Mitrovica.
 
     The students and mentors from Sremska Mitrovica arrived in Zagreb a day before the event, they were hosted in the students home of our school. The next morning, we greeted the students and their mentors from Zadar and Bedekovcina and proceeded to work on the project.
   Our colleagues were given a tour of our school and attended a class in Croatian hand-signal language. After completion of the two-handed alphabet system, we visited a class in the special program “Carer TES”. Likewise, we visited the lectures in class of the Anatomy and Physiology and practical training in General Healthcare and Healthcare of healthy children.
   After our lunch break, we discussed the completed tasks related to research and analytics of literature which is compulsory to all schools. We discussed and decided on the costumes and look of the scenes in the upcoming “Days of E-medica 2019.”
   In the evening, we took our guests out to the Advent in Zagreb and it was rather a fun experience. Our colleagues and mentors left with the pre-agreed destination of the next exchange in the upcoming new year of 2019 within Sremska Mitrovica.

   We visited Zagreb as a part of the E-medica student exchange. We were warmly greeted by the Mlinarska medical school and Medical school “Draginja Niksic” from Sremska Mitrovica. After discussions and planning regarding the project, we were treated to food and snacks. We received a tour of the school where we visited the Anatomy class which was very interesting. Later in the evening we went into the city where we hungout and enjoyed ourselves. We had a chance to get to know the students and the professors better. We had a great and pleasurable experience and we look forward to continued collaboration.

   Respected colleagues in the “Medicine through literature”. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for another successful student exchange which happened in School for nurses Mlinarska. We would like to thank the other participating schools who took part and improved the quality of this exchange. Throughout the day we were introduced to the advantages of Schoole for nurses Mlinarska” out of which we would like to extract the course in sign language. The exchange was concluded smoothly as it was planned. All thoughts and ideas were agreed on. We would like to thank the hosts once again and the reception after the main meeting.

High School Bedekovcina

   After a very nice and friendly welcome within the school, we were hosted in the students home. The evening was spent enjoying the charms of the Advent in Zagreb and happy faces of people who enjoyed the evening with relaxing music while enjoying local traditional food. This was very impressive for us who come from a smaller place, we experienced a night in a big city with people who were excited and happy expecting the upcoming Christmas. The next day, we spent working on the project, meeting our colleagues, visiting the school and even attending some classes which showed we are collaborating with a school with “a soul” After we came to an agreement on the next steps and activities we proceeded to visit the center of Zagreb again, where we saw some historically cultural monuments, taking back with us great experience and learning a new culture and habits.
We would gladly visit again, thank you to the hosts.

Mina Vuletic

   The professors and the students warmly welcomed and hosted us. Everyone was in good spirits, and that was reflected in laughter and jokes, but when we worked, the seriousness stepped in. It was very interesting, we experienced and saw a lot. The professors were amazing. The city is beautiful ,they showed us plenty of things, also we got to learn about the history of the city, saw some beautiful buildings and city squares. The Square Ban Jelacic and Zrinski park left the best impression on me.

   After we exchanged our greetings, we attended several classes: Anatomy & Physiology, Genera Health Care and Health Care of Healthy Children and Adolescents.
   We showed our guests around the school, cabinets and the dormatory. Together we analysed the literary books which will be used in our research and agreed on they ways of presenting the results. In our free time we took a stroll around Zagreb with our guests.

  
On Wednesday, 6th July 2018, we paid a visit to High School Bedekovčina.
   There we met some students we were going to work with and made a videoconference with Medical School "Draginja Nikšić" in Sremska Mitrovica.
   During the exchange, we brainstormed suggestions about the literary books each school was meant to analyse, and agreed upon the scenography and other details.
   After a great lunch at the dining room of their student dormitory, our hosts took us to Marija Bistrica for sightseeing and getting to know each other better.
   After two days of working together, we accompanied our colleagues from Zadar to the Bus Station, wishing them a safe journey home. We are looking forward to our next student exchange. Until then, we are going to finish our part of the project
