With keynote speakers Ilias Mosialos who the day before yesterday was awarded an honorary Doctor of Medicine of the Univ. of Thessaly and Larissa Professor of Pharmacology of the University of Crete Achillea Gravanis, who referred to the new data on the evolution of the pandemic, the work of the 1st Hippocratic Congress began on Friday afternoon, in the building of the Medical School in Viopoli.
The organization of the 1st Scientific “HORSE KINGDOM” Medical Conference of the Department of Medicine of the University of Thessaly marks a new era of extroversion with the aim of highlighting on the one hand the historical course and achievements of the 30 years of operation of the Department of Medicine and on the other hand its future course aiming at Excellence in education, innovation and research and our dedication to offering high quality health services to our fellow citizens. This vision of ours is also served by the recent decision of our Department and the University of Thessaly for the operation from 2023-24 of an English-language Undergraduate Medical Program in Larissa, constituting an emblematic outward-looking action for the entire University of Thessaly with multiple benefits for the entire region of central Greece.
With our Conference, we aim at the broad participation in the scientific program of students both of our Department and of the other Medical Departments of the country, of the graduates of our Department who pursue brilliant careers in foreign and foreign institutions as well as the promotion of the multifaceted teacher, research, clinical and staff work of our Department.
Our conference also coincides with the annual events for the “Eternal Return of Hippocrates to Larissa” which is co-organized by the Municipality of Larissa, the Region of Thessaly, the “Hippocrates in Larissa” Association and the “Hippocrates” Medical Association of Larissa. We further highlight the Hippocratic tradition of Larissa through our ongoing collaboration with the International Hippocratic Foundation of Kos and the World Hippocratic Institute of Physicians in order to achieve the internationalization of Hippocratic ideas in the field of Medicine and beyond.
