Infectious Diseases Interest Group is intended for students of the study programme Medicine, as well as for all the people who are interested in expanding their knowledge and getting acquainted with the current issues in the treatment of infectious diseases.

The goal of the Infectious Diseases Interest Group is to arouse the greatest possible interest of students in infectious diseases, for example, to discover the latest diagnostic options of these diseases, focus on latest therapeutic discoveries and to study various interesting clinical cases and to engage in research work in the respective field.

Theoretical sessions of the interest group are held every month from September to May, where each student can choose the most interesting topic and make a presentation and present it to the members of the interest group and visitors. An experienced doctor who is a specialist in infectious diseases will participate in each theoretical session will be able to answer students’ questions and participate in discussions. There will also be practical sessions with visits to places that are relevant in this field.

Current information is published on the group's Facebook page, as well as sent electronically to group members and visitors.

All people who are interested are welcome!
