Feature Friday: Faculty of Medicine of the University of Rijeka

This week's Feature Friday article takes us to the beautiful country of Croatia where we are going to find out more about The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Rijeka.

Can you tell us something about your school?

The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Rijeka was founded in 1955 and has grown in the past six decades into one of the most significant educational and scientific institutions recognised in Croatia and abroad. Our Faculty was established by notable people who were ahead of their time. The establishment was initiated by Andrija Štampar. He brought together former teachers and students from Zagreb, Vienna, Pest and Prague, which brought a light of diversity, tolerance and free thought to our region. The Faculty is located in one of the oldest parts of Rijeka, in the impressive palace of the Branchetta brothers dated from the beginning of the twentieth century. The project of the young architect from Rijeka who won the competition was called Aria e luce. Today, this building surrounded by an attractive park is one of the most beautiful faculties of the University of Rijeka and undoubtedly beyond.

In synergy with our teaching bases and the University of Rijeka, we educate experts in the field of medicine and environmental and public health. We collaborate closely with the Faculty of Health Studies and the Faculty of Dental Medicine, thus jointly educating future doctors of dental medicine and non-medical healthcare professionals. We are the oldest and largest constituent of the University of Rijeka. Our students, teachers and alumni are the greatest value of the Faculty. Students of the Faculty of Medicine in Rijeka have an active social life. They organise numerous student events (Humanijada, Bal medicinara, Kapi života…) and do not lag in scientific and professional work, which is evident through the organisation of numerous international scientific and professional conferences. The Student Union, FOSS, CroMSIC and EMSA give that special, much-needed breath of student life that is almost as valuable as the educational part that our teachers provide. Finally, our teachers… To be a part of the Faculty that is big enough to be significant yet small enough to remain independent is the advantage of studying and working at our Faculty. Our teachers recognise their students in the hallways, on the street and in the city, which is a result of a direct, personal and individualised approach to students. We are also proud of our alumni! Former students of our Faculty are healthcare providers at the Clinical Hospital Centre Rijeka, most of southwestern Croatia, but also beyond. Many of them are recognised experts abroad who work in prestigious hospitals and research centres throughout Europe and the US. We are pleased to still have contact with them through the Faculty’s Alumni Association.

I invite you to our Faculty to study, work and indulge in “More ideja – More ideas”!
