Abstract

The aim of the project is to establish an institute of nuclear medicine in Stip, the centre of the East part of the country. The establishment of a modern nuclear medicine department would make early diagnosis services available for people in this region, as currently they have to go to Skopje or Bitola where nuclear medicine departments only exist in the country. The institution will be established as part of the Faculty of Medical Sciences, and will not only avail modern nuclear medicine diagnostic procedures for patients in the region, but also will offer education and training opportunities to the young specialists. This project is in accordance with the national development plans in the current CPF. Since 1995 Republic of Macedonia has been participating in IAEA TC programs in the field of nuclear medicine. During that period the Nuclear Medicine Department at the Faculty of Medicine in Skopje, and the smaller one in Medical Centre Bitola were established and upgraded. During the implementation of these projects employed staffs from both institutions were trained in many EU countries and became recognized in the field. Regarding the result based on that experience, the present national efforts are dedicated to establish nuclear medicine institute in the east part of the country where there is no nuclear medicine services available. Through this project a modern nuclear medicine department will be established in the Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Stip, and the health care for patients will be improved due to availability of early and accurate diagnosis and detection of diseases (coronary artery disease, cancer, infections) costs will be reduced.
