Introduction: In the midwife profession in addition to good theoretical and practical expertise important role also play personal, social and communication skills, among them empathy. Students learn about importance of empathy in midwifery in introductory lectures of midwifery, and later they also touch the empathic relationship at the supervisory exercises. Those exercises, aimed at the development of social skills, values, morals and ethics of midwifery should in more hours included in the curriculum. Changes bring students closer to understanding and knowledge of empathy, and contribute to a better quality midwife's care. Purpose: Diploma want to emphasize the importance of empathy in midwifery care, and through the study to determine the degree of empathy among midwifery students at the Faculty of Health Science. The research focuses on posible differences in the level of empathy between the 1 st year and the 3rd year of study. Methods: Diploma work is based on descriptive quantitative method of research with the Midwifery Empathy Scale (MES). Study included all three years of midwifery students at the Facilty of Health Science with the participation of 81 students, which represent 86,17% sample realization. Data was edited in Microsoft Excel 2016, and later for statistical processing we using SPSS program. To describe the data we used a descriptive structure and tables. Results: The mean of empathy among midwifery students is 108,20 with standard deviation 7,81. The students of second year had the highest mean of empathy (113,73 with standard deviation of 7,78). Study does not find a statistically significant difference between the first and third year. Earli health education does not affect a higher degree of empathy, as such there are no significant statistical differences betwen part-time and full-time studies. Discussion and conclusion: The results show the mean of empathy which are comparable to foreign research. In the midwifery profession the ability to empathy plays an extremly important role. Empathy is a innate characteristic, but throught studies it can be perfected. The research show that the improvements in empathy are still possible, so professors and clinical mentors in the curriculum should include simple techniques that would significantly contribute to improving empathic skills at midwifery students at the Faculty of Health Sciences.
