In the Province Hospital Susak the Medical Association of the Croatian Coast and Gorski kotar was founded on October 2nd, 1936. At that time on the territory of the former District of Susak there were 59 physicians. The inauguration meeting was attended by 41 physicians and 26 of them voted for the autonomous Association rather than for one within the Croatian Medical Association of Zagreb. Vladimir Blaz, M.D. was the first elected president. During the Italian occupation in the 2nd World War Association's activities were interrupted. After five years of inactivity, the Association was restored at its constituting session held on June 8th, 1946, when Zdravko Kucić, M.D. was elected president. The Medical Association Rijeka-Susak was founded on September 24th, 1947 and the first elected president was Fran Bakarcić, M.D. It still kept functioning as an autonomous association. The following year the Association became the subsidiary of the Croatian Medical Association.
