The meeting took place in the context of the cooperation of the International Faculty with the General Hospital of Papageorgiou in Thessaloniki for the Practicum component of the MA in Clinical Neuropsychology programme. Through this cooperation our students have the opportunity to do their Practicum at the Papageorgiou Hospital and get the invaluable experience of working with patients in a public hospital. Dr Fitsioris spoke highly of our students’ knowledge and competence.

Expressing her gratitude Dr Emmanouel commented: ‘No words to express my thanks and gratitude to Dr. Xenofon Fitsioris, Director of Neurology at the General Hospital of Papageorgiou. I am touched since I conducted my practicum there working close to  this exceptional neurologist and man, and without his great support and contribution the practicum of our trainees in this huge and several times awarded hospital (for both clinical and research work) won’t be a reality now. Our trainees have there the great opportunity to apply assessment and cognitive intervention programmes to patients with different types of dementia, epilepsy and multiple scleroses and gain valuable professional experience working with these populations. Both parts are very satisfied and looking forward to continue this collaboration in the future.”
