The main goal of this unique congress is to help students acquire important practical knowledge they need in their professional life through numerous workshops, lectures and other activities held by renowned domestic and international professors with many prestigious awards (Nobel Prize, Wolf Prize, Kavli Prize etc.) while networking and enjoying the beautiful city of Split.

You can apply for only one of the available registration packages. The registrations will be in an online form where you will need to put in basic personal information and choose the registration package. We note that the workshop applications will be open for all the Workshop Participants at the same time. Due to the limited number of places on workshops, we cannot guarantee that everybody will get every workshop they want. The principle here is “First come, first served”.
If you apply as a Workshop Participant but don't get any of the workshop places, you will be automatically transferred to the Lecture Participant package. After you fill out the registration form and choose your registration package, you will need to pay the fee in 48 hours. Otherwise, your registration will be cancelled.
The registration prices are fixed meaning that the price does not change depending on the number of workshops/lectures you attend. Example: if you attend 3 workshops/lectures or 5 workshops/lectures the price for the Workshop Package is the same.
The payment for the registration packages must be made via bank transfer to the bank account of the University of Split School of Medicine (details of the account will be sent in the e-mail once the registration is submitted).
