Dean’s foreword 

The listed study programmes have already become recognisable educational frameworks that educated and train high-quality health workers necessary in Eastern Croatia. 

The biggest teaching base of the Faculty is the Clinical Hospital Centre Osijek, in whose clinics, departments and institutes our students acquire clinical knowledge and skills necessary to fulfil their calling, as well as a clear vision of necessary permanent education. 

The Faculty of Dental Medicine and Health Osijek signed contracts with health institutions and with administrative local units and self-administrative units in Eastern Croatia. 

In conclusion, the calling of our students of our university studies is more than just a profession – everyone who studies at our Faculty will one day get a diploma but also big moral responsibility to conduct their calling honourably. The Faculty will ensure the acquisition of the best competences and an ethical foundation, and their job is to refresh their knowledge and skills to be able to fulfil their calling as high-quality, highly ethical and honourable experts.
