We are determined to continue that way in the future, and think that we should  advance our cooperative relationship within the Serbian –Italian bilateral cooperation framework in line with the imperative and requirements of modern medicine’’, Col.

During the discussions, both parties expressed mutual interest in sharing of experience and knowledge in the sphere of military medicine with a special focus on surgical branches such as ophthalmology, orthopedics, and neurosurgery. Our experiences gained through participation in UN-led peacekeeping missions and specific knowledge of war surgery were also the areas of their interest.

Preceding from the facts that Italy boasts great experience in the telemedicine domain, and that it has the advanced Telemedicine Center operating within the framework of the Rome Military Hospital on one side, and the interest of the MMA and our Military Medical Services in further development of this medical branch,  possibilities of establishing cooperative relations in this field  were also considered.
