Neven Sucic, BMS, MSc

General Secretary EPBS (Croatia)

I entered the profession in 1997 when I graduated at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Rijeka. In 2015 and completed a Master’s degree in Biomedical Science at the Faculty of Health Studies, University of Rijeka.

I held my first position as an intern at the Rijeka Health Centre (Biochemistry and Haematology) in 2000. I started working at the General Hospital in Pula (Biochemistry and Haematology), in 2001 and after one year at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Rijeka (Microbiology, Cell Culture, Molecular Biology). Finally, in 2004 I moved to the Teaching Institute of Public Health in Rijeka, where I work now.

At the Teaching Institute of Public Health, I started working as a biomedical scientist in different laboratories in the Department of Clinical Microbiology and finally in the Laboratory of Water Microbiology in the Department of Environmental Protection and Health Ecology, but my main interest remains molecular techniques.

In 2013, The Croatian Chamber of Health Professionals – Professional Department for Medical Laboratory Activities (CCHPPDMLA) became a full member of the EPBS, and until 2017 I have been a Chief delegate and since 2015 EPBS auditor. In 2018 I joined the Management Body as Director and from 2021 as Treasurer.

In my free time, I like to read books, listen to music and take long walks by the sea. But most of all, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
