Dear colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the annual congress of the Croatian Thoracic Society - TORAKS 2024. For the fourteenth year in a row, we are gathering many healthcare professionals who care for patients with respiratory diseases, and for four congress days they will exchange the latest scientific and professional knowledge.

As medicine advances extremely quickly, the need for a multidisciplinary approach to patients with pulmonary diseases arises, so the congress gathers not only pulmonologists, but also radiologists, surgeons, cytologists, pathologists, microbiologists, basic scientists, pharmacists and family medicine doctors. Of course, without nurses, the care of our patients would not be complete, therefore a separate part of the program is dedicated to nursing.

We believe that during the congress you will find useful topics, enrich your knowledge, exchange experiences, and establish scientific and professional contacts.

Academician Miroslav Samaržija
President of the Croatian Thoracic Society
