DEPARTMENT OF OTORHINOLARYNGOLOGY--FIFTY THREE YEARS SINCE THE ESTABLISHMENT/K ATEDRA ZA OTORINOLARINGOLOGIJU--53 GODINA POSTOJANJA.

Introduction

Otorhinolaryngology Clinic, which is an integral part of Vojvodina Clinical Centre, is the first teaching base of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology since 1964. It was founded only four years after the establishment of the Faculty of Medicine in Novi Sad, pursuant to the faculty's decision.

The very beginnings of otorhinolaryngology are linked to a poet and a doctor Jovan Jovanovic Zmaj. Doctor Nikola Matijevic, who specialized in Ear, Nose and Throat in Berlin, started his first private practice in Novi Sad in 1923. In 1926 the ENT ward was founded in the city general hospital of Novi Sad and its Head was doctor Slobodan Matic. Doctor Vasa Krstic, assistant at the Faculty of Medicine in Zagreb, was a part of the ENT ward since 1927 as the ward's otolaryngologist. The Clinic was then moved to the ground level of the same building which was made in 1909. During Second World War, the ward's Head was Dionysus Denes Fodor, his position was then taken by doctor Andrija Hubert, followed by doctor Dorde Fiser. After early death of Dr. Hubert, head position was assumed by Dr. Dorde Fiser. When the Department of Otorhinolaryngology was established in 1964 Otorhinolaryngology ward was given the status of a Clinic. Dr. Dorde Fiser was the first Head of Otorhinolaryngology Clinic and the first Head of Department of Otorhinolaryngology.

In the beginning of the school year 1976/77 the Faculty of Medicine was legally integrated with the core teaching units. Seventeen Basic Organizations of Associated Labour have been formed by a self-governing agreement, and one of them was the Clinic for Ear, Nose and Throat, as it was then named. In 1976 the Dental Department of the Medical Faculty was founded and the teaching became available for its students.

The Department of Otorhinolaryngology joined the organization of the teaching process at the Faculty of Medicine, according to the Bologna Declaration's guidelines from 2005. Now, the Department of Otorhinolaryngology can offer the following study programs: Integrated academic studies of medicine; integrated academic studies in dentistry; bachelor of special education and rehabilitation and bachelor of nursing. The classes are also conducted for students in English, students at second and third level studies as well as at specialist studies. Since 2017, the teachers of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology have started conducting theoretical and practical teaching in ten teaching subjects in the Serbian language as a part of the first degree studies. For the purpose of taking specialist exams from 2016, the Department of Otorhinolaryngology has two specialist commissions from the previous period, and a commission for the examination of narrow specializations in audiology and phoniatry.

The Department od Otorhinolaryngology celebrated 50th anniversary since its establishment in 2014.
