Mirza Pojskic from BiH, the youngest Neurosurgeon in Germany: I hope for a successful Career

March 28, 2018 1:00 PM

Mirza Pojskic from Zenica decided to work in the field of neurosurgery, a discipline that is dealing with diseases of the most complex system in the human body, as a student at the Faculty of Medicine in Sarajevo and he is one of the youngest neurosurgeons in Germany now.

The main motive for him to leave BiH was the desire to get professional and, primarily, surgical education in the field of contemporary neurosurgery.

He obtained his doctoral degree in the Phillips University in Marburg in November 2017, and his thesis was about the implants used in the spine surgery, with which his academic career started at one of the oldest and most prestigious medical faculties in Germany. At the same time, he published his article on surgery of brain metastasis, which attracted certain attention in the neurosurgeon circles.

“I have completed the education of the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) and passed the written exam of the European Association. Prof. Dr. Kenan Arnautovic, the top American and world neurosurgeon of Bosnian origin, gave a new impetus to my career and I owe him huge gratitude for his support. I had the honour to spend a month under his mentorship in a renowned international fellowship program at the Semmes-Murphey Neurosurgery Clinic in Memphis, where I started acquiring new knowledge about complex surgery of the base of human skull and the complexity of spinal surgery,” he said.

Numerous scientific works that have been published in world-renowned neurosurgical journals were result of that cooperation.

He can be proud of this success as one of the youngest neurosurgeons in Germany with a specialist exam that he passed after five years of work in Marburg.

“I am well aware that this is a very important but only a first step for the future and I honestly hope for a successful career that is about to start. Years of hard work and discipline are needed to become a good neurosurgeon, where you also need to spend years in dedicated work and learning as in every other job and to learn from older and more experienced colleagues. I have the privilege of learning from some of the greatest experts on the world, which makes it safe for patients and more exciting for us, doctors who treat them,” said Pojskic.

“I never felt any type of discrimination here just because I was a foreigner. I owe special gratitude to the chief of the clinic, Dr. Christopher Nimsky and his deputy, Dr. Barbara Carl, who supported me through opportunities to work in the operating room and numerous educations in Germany, Europe and America. To find your way in an excellent clinic in a competitive environment is difficult and it requires resignation and hard work and the fact that I got the opportunity to directly enter the ‘match’ is really important,” said Mirza Pojskic.
