SSST Stories


Sarajevo Medical School students continue to march on

Sep 19, 2019

Our very own Edna Skopljak, 6th year Sarajevo Medical School student, has had several successes during her years at SSST and has already managed to get internships throughout the last couple of years. Edna’s passion for medicine has taken her to Slovenia once again, where she had the opportunity to spend one month at the Orthopaedic hospital Valdoltra. She has shared her experience with us:

“It was my honour to have Prof.dr. Rihard Trebse as my mentor, as he is an internationally recognized orthopaedic surgeon, an expert in septic orthopaedic surgery, and prosthetics, who also published his book in Springer. I was able to spend every day in the operating room both as first and second assistant, on simple and complex surgeries such as primary and revision arthroplasty of hip, knee, shoulder, and elbow. Additionally, under the mentorship of Dr Jurij Stalc, I was assisting in state-of-the-art procedures in foot and ankle orthopaedics, including percutaneous, and endoscopic procedures of osteochondral lesions, as well as the reconstructions of the foot and ankle. As an invited lecturer on 14th Foot and Ankle Surgery Course, which is going to be held in Istanbul, from 27th, till 28th September, Dr Stalc invited me, as his student, to participate in this course.”

Edna is at her final year here at SSST and will be in the first generation of students who will graduate from our Sarajevo Medical School. Let’s hope that every generation will continue to have as much success as this one! Best of luck to Edna on her further challenges!
