The Administration for Inspection Affairs of the Sarajevo Canton determined last week that the master's degree of Sebija Izetbegović, the director of the University Clinical Center Sarajevo (UCC) requires additional checks.
The Directorate for Inspection Affairs of the Sarajevo Canton recently completed the inspection supervision at the Medical Faculty in Sarajevo.
It was established that Sebija Izetbegović has only a copy of the student's transcript as proof of schooling in Zagreb.
Certificate of passed postgraduate exams
The KUIP clearly indicated why additional checks were needed.
- The reason for this is that we were not presented with the relevant documentation related to the acquired rights of student Izetbegović at the postgraduate study at the Medical Faculty of the University of Zagreb. Nor did we have an insight into the curricula, and the fund of hours of lectures - it was said from KUIP.
In addition, the Medical Faculty in Sarajevo did not submit to prof. dr. Rifat Škrijelj, Rector of the University of Sarajevo (UNSA), certificate of passing the postgraduate exams of Sebija Izetbegović in Zagreb.
15 days ago, Škrijelj asked the Medical Faculty in Sarajevo for documentation related to the academic career of Dr. Sebija Izetbegović, general director of KCUS, but it was incomplete, which is why last week he demanded that it needs to be supplemented and sent again.
On two occasions, the Rector requested information on the Izetbegović's postgraduate study and documentation on the election to the title of assistant, with precise evidence and certificates of passed exams. In the supplemented information, the Faculty of Medicine did not submit a certificate of passing the postgraduate exams of Sebija Izetbegović in Zagreb to the UNSA Rectorate.
The Faculty of Medicine in Sarajevo sent the Rectorate a copy of the Sebija Izetbegović index, which is not relevant proof of her academic education. On June 15, Škrijelj decided to ask for answers from the Faculty of Medicine in Zagreb in order to confirm the credibility of the student's transcript, but as it was confirmed to us, he still has not received any answer from Zagreb.
It is illogical how and when Sebija Izetbegović passed the first exam at the "postgraduate study" in Zagreb in 1993.
When she attended class
In her request submitted in August 1994 to the Council for Scientific Research and Postgraduate Studies in Sarajevo, she stated that she had enrolled in postgraduate studies on March 2nd, 1993 at the University of Zagreb - Faculty of Medicine.
The published "Zagreb student's transcript" reveals that Sebija Izetbegović enrolled in postgraduate studies on March 2nd, 1993, and already on March 19th, in 17 days, she passed the first exam.
The real question is when and how Sebija Izetbegović attended classes in the semester, because then the classes lasted for two years. In addition, each semester had a number of lectures and exercises that had to be done in order to take the exam. And that was determined by KUIP inspectors.
Protection of personal data
In response related to Sebija Izetbegović's education at the Faculty of Medicine in Zagreb, they told for "Avaz" that "by inspecting the list of enrolled postgraduate students in English course "Ultrasound in clinical medicine" of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Zagreb, in the academic year 1992/93, they also found the name of postgraduate student Sebija Izetbegović.
- Respecting the provisions of the Personal Data Protection Act (GDPR), this is the only information with which we can go public with - said Mario Cvek, spokesman for the Medical Faculty in Zagreb.
