On Tuesday 19th March 2013, at the Clinical Center of Serbia, a one-day training for screening colonoscopy intended for nurses and technicians from clinical and hospital centers throughout Serbia was held. Education was organized by the project "Support for the implementation of the National Program for early cancer detection in Serbia", and the lecturers were experienced physicians Dr. Milena Scepanovic and Dr. Ivan Jovanovic, as well as nurses Sanja Bojovic, Milica Dejanovic and Slobodan Perak. The goal of this training was to train medical personnel for screening colonoscopy in order to be ready as possible for the implementation of the National screening program.

Educational course, in which 40 nurses and technicians participated, included the most important elements of the concept of screening, colonoscopy techniques, patient preparation, procedures, interventions, and possible complications associated with this procedure. Additionally, the lectures included relevant information on the use and maintenance of equipment for screening, and case studies that represent best practices. After the theoretical part, the medical workers underwent practical training in the operating room for endoscopy of the Clinic of Gastroenterology, at Clinical Center. Upon completing medical education medical workers have positively rated this program and the second training is scheduled for 26th March 2013th.
