SnežanaJovičić started Graduate Studies in Medical Biochemistry at the University of Belgrade School of Pharmacy in 1995, and graduated on February 1st 2002 with the average mark 9,24. Since February 20th 2002 she has been working at the Center for Policlinic Laboratory Diagnostics of the Institute for Medical Biochemistry Clinical Center of Serbia. She has been appointed Head of Ward at the Clinic for Cardiac Surgery of the Center for Medical Biochemistry Clinical Center of Serbia since September 2012. Beginning the school year 2009/2010 until 2012/2013 she has been engaged as part-time teaching associate at the Department of Medical Biochemistry of the University of Belgrade School of Pharmacy. She was elected Teaching Assistant for Medical Biochemistry by the Scientific Educational Council of University of Belgrade School of Pharmacy in June 2013. She has been engaged in practical training on the Integrated Academic Studies for subjects: Clinical Chemistry and Molecular Diagnostics, Evidence Based Laboratory Medicine, Biochemical Methods in Prenatal Screening, Laboratory Management and Quality Assurance, Laboratory Diagnostics of Hemostasis Disorders, and Laboratory Hematology.
Snežana Jovičić started Healthcare Specialization in Medical Biochemistry in 2005 and passed the Specialization exam on December 2011 with excellent grades. She was enrolled in Doctoral Studies in Medical Biochemistry in 2006. She defended her Doctoral Dissertation entitled „Factor analysis and association of lipid, inflammatory, cardiac, and renal biomarkers with C-reactive protein in cardiovascular risk categorization“ on August 27th 2013.
During her undergraduate studies she had the Scholarship of the Foundation for Support of Young Scientists and Artists by Ministry of Science of Republic of Serbia from the school year 1997/98 until the graduation. Between 2006 and 2010 she was a member of the American Association of Clinical Chemistry (AACC) as part of the Gallwas Membership Grant Award. She is a member of the Society of Medical Biochemists of Serbia (SMBS), where she is involved in the realization of Continuous Medical Education, engaged as the President of the Committee for IT activities and member of the Committee for External Qualiy Control. She is the member of the E-Newsletter Working Group of the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry (IFCC) and corresponding member of the Patient-Focused Laboratory Medicine Working Group of the European Federation of Laboratory Medicine (EFLM). Since September 2011 she is engaged as the Managing Editor of the Journal of Medical Biochemistry published by SMBS. She is the member of the Chamber of Biochemists of Serbia since its foundation.
Up-to-date, Snežana Jovičić is the author and co-author of 11 papers published in international and national journals, and 24 communications on international and national meetings published as abstracts.
