The Dental Medicine study programme was founded in 1973 at the University of Rijeka and has been active since. Through its continuous advancement in more than 45 years, the Faculty has shown both desire and strength in developing the profession and the study programme. Students, as the most important factor in our work, are our colleagues who stay in touch with their professors even after the graduation – some of them even join our scientific and professional work.
Work at the Study of Dental medicine is a mix of teaching, professional and scientific activities that all represent parts of a large puzzle. Since the number of students is rather small, we are able to organize work in small groups, which practically means a lot of individual contacts between students and their professors/mentors. We are proud of the fact that our students acquire knowledge, skills, and competencies for their future professional activities.
Apart from the quality of the educational process and the pleasant environment, studying in Rijeka is really enjoyable for various sports and social activities organized by Student organizations, as well as for the pleasant Mediterranean and Central European environment that our town has to offer.
Therefore, I invite you to visit our Faculty, get acquainted with the possibilities we have to offer and choose one of our study programmes.
Prof. Tomislav Rukavina, M.D., PhD.
