Learning through fun is much more effective and on the long-term has a high impact on students, so we invite you to the place where you can learn and have fun simultaneously!

Check out what we have in store for you…

 Why Emergency Medicine?

Emergency medicine is a medical specialty where the physician acquires practical knowledge on how to care for patients with acute illnesses or injuries that require immediate medical assistance. Although it usually does not involve the provision of long-term or continuous care, emergency medicine doctors diagnose various diseases and undertake interventions to stabilize the patient. The Emergency medical care begins at the spot where the wounded is, and continues on the transport vehicle to the emergency department and intensive care units. The purpose of emergency aid is to stabilizate the patients in order to receive further diagnosis and treatment in the appropriate department.

When? Where? How Much?

The School starts on the 8th of July and ends on the 12th of July and will be held in the beautiful city of Ohrid, in the hotel Klimetica. The hotel is located under the slopes of the National Park “Galichica”, 200 meters from the lake, and 4 km from the city center.

The cost of the whole school is 150 EUR for all non-Macedonian students, price in which you pay for transportation by bus Skopje – Ohrid – Skopje (if you need it), full board at the hotel (for those housed there), cocktail party, free coffee and snacks during breaks and beach games.

Ohrid, Macedonia

The highlight of any trip to Macedonia, Ohrid is a place of dramatic beauty, steeped in history and culture. The crystalline waters of the lake and plentiful budget accommodation make it a magnet for summer holidaymakers, turning this sleepy little place, with its evocative cobbled laneways peppered with picturesque churches, into a vibrant party town.


This year we have prepared a rich program that covers the five whole days, lectures, clinical practice, fun, friendship, social games and much, much more. You are welcomed to look at the program, it has the full agenda for the five days.
