I have, graduated from Aristotle University Medical School, Thessalonika, Greece in 1997. Following my graduation with ‘suma cum laude’, I have spent 18 months as a GP registrar on the national Greek mandatory medical rotation in a village in Greece providing GP equivalent medical cover to a population of 2000 people. This was followed by 3 years of General Medical Training in Greece where my interest in Haematology began. As I feel that clinical medicine is strongly related to research I was committed into research from my early days in Medicine and following my General Medical Training I was successfully granted my PhD title in June 2002. I was trained as a Specialist Registrar in Haematology in the West Midlands region and completed my training at the end of March 2011.I was appointed as a Consultant Haematologist at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital on the 1st of April 2011 and during my Consultant job I have developed a specialist interest in malignant haematology and stem cell transplantation while I have published my clinical research in peer review journals.I am also a member of the national working party for AML and the intrathecal chemotherapy lead for Heart of England NHS Trust. I always try to keep myself up to date with the recent advances in haematology and regularly attend National and International conferences where I present my scientific work too. Currently I am the Deputy Divisional Director for University Hospital Birmingham Division 5 for Haematology and Stem cell transplantation at Heart of england NHS Trust Haematology Department. I have also successfully finished my MBA health management studies at Keele University in September 2014
I have managed to build excellent relationships with patients, colleagues and staff throughout my career which is reflected in the official feedback I received during my NHS appraisals. I am very approachable and eager to provide the best possible care to my patients. I am very enthusiastic with teaching trainees in Haematology being the educational supervisor of the haematology SpRs at Heart of England Hospital for the last 2 years. I am very keen on sports with football, basketball and beach volleyball being my main activities outside medicine.
