I am pleased to invite you to the 17th successive Croatian Student Summit under the banner of “Sensing the World: Otorhinolaryngology & Ophthalmology”. The Croatian Student Summit, also popularly known as CROSS, is a congress organised by the Student Council of the University of Zagreb School of Medicine that has been continuously organized for 17 years in a row. I would like to highlight that CROSS is organised almost entirely by students, therefore adding extraordinary value to both the Faculty and the University. Students can participate at the Summit as either passive or active participants; we also have the option to engage in CROSS in the form of an elective course, which speaks for the value of this event within our Faculty.
Otorhinolaryngology and ophthalmology are two branches of medicine extremely popular with medical students and young doctors. These fields have recently seen rapid development in both diagnostic and treatment procedures, therefore providing for an excellent array of innovative lectures. This year’s Congress aims to present otorhinolaryngology and ophthalmology in a broad manner and to wide range of students and young doctors, familiarising them with both surgical and non-surgical approaches.
The Congress serves as a great opportunity to exchange ideas, form new friendships, as well as develop your presenting and communicating skills. Through lectures from the biggest experts, interesting and instructive workshops, and scientific poster presentations, we want to introduce you the massive opportunities these fields hold for the future, as well as help you along your academic path. Therefore, I am inviting you to join us at the Croatian Student Summit 17 being held from the 27th to 30th of April 2022 at the Zagreb Student Center.
