First Scientific Student Section
@ School of Medicine, University of Mostar
Welcome to PHARMiON,
Student Section that takes interest in pharmacology, immunology and scientific research - well, a little bit of everything. Our main goal is to provide additional education to our members and fellow colleagues on topics that usually get overlooked in standard curriculum as well as trending topics in the world of science.
This is our official page.
Explore. Experience. Enjoy.
Back in the days...
Every group/collective has a story about how they became what they are now and so do we. Ours goes back to the year 2015. when our founding members studied together for the pharmacology exam. The course was very demanding and Damir was fussing (as usual) about how there should be some sort of additional help for this course or even a specific student network... Since there was no time for anything else but studying the curriculum and actually passing the course, the idea of a specific student network was set aside for a while. This is important because they haven't only noticed the lack of student sections at our School of Medicine but few semesters later they became the first ones to do something about it.
The School of Medicine, University of Mostar opened its doors and PHARMiON began with activities in November of 2018 as the FIRST student section. Since then, it has been PHARMiON's dedication to interest more students in fields of pharmacology and immunology through workshops and lectures as well as promote scientific research projects among students.
“Doctors put drugs of which they know little into bodies of which they know less for diseases of which they know nothing at all."

Hello. Good day. My name is...
November 8, 2018.
HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?
We usually start with our activities in late October. At that time you can find the application form on all our official websites and social media profiles. The application period usually lasts for two weeks. If you want to apply outside the application period, you can always contact us by e-mail.
WHAT DOES PHARMiON OFFER TO THEIR MEMBERS?
We offer you a variety of lectures and workshops as the main goal of our Section is to provide additional clinical and pre-clinical education as well as research opportunities. Check out Student activism for more info.
HOW CAN I ACCOMPLISH MY SCIENTIFIC INTEREST?
Every member that expresses their ambitions towards scientific research will be instructed and informed to make their ambition as achievable as possible. You can, for example, attend our crash course or you can work with our mentors on their research. It usually depends on current project availability.
CAN I APPLY FOR A TRIAL RUN?
Yes, you can always contact us by mail and apply. Then at our mandatory assembly at the beginning of the next semester, our members will vote for your application. If you apply successfully, you will become a B member.
CAN NON-MED STUDENTS BECOME MEMBERS?
Yes. PHARMiON members are not just medicine students but also pharmacy students and health sciences students. However, when it comes to health sciences students, only 4th and 5th year students may become A members due to the necessity of understanding basic principals of either pharmacology, immunology or scientific research. Same reason applies to pharmacy and medicine students as only 3rd year or higher may become A members.
