From her early highschool years, Sofia decided to become a doctor and never looked back. Even though her family reacted. She studied Medicine in Larissa, Greece, and got her specialty in Athens. Her strong belief is that pathology “is the most holistic and anthropocentric specialty in Medicine“. Towards the end of 2017, she accepted the offer to join the GOC and head the Department of Internal Medicine. She saw it as a challenge, and wanted to be part of the project right from the beginning.

Until then, having worked in several state hospitals in Greece and Cyprus, I lacked the experience of dealing exclusively with cancer patients.

From my experience so far at the, I felt almost immediately that it’s impossible not to connect more with cancer patient than with any other. A more personal relationship takes over you.

The tumor is not my only focus. A Physician, specialized in Internal Medicine, has to take care of the patient’s other needs as well – those that may not be your main priority when cancer is diagnosed and needs to be treated.

The challenges are many and fascinating. A smile from someone who suffers and could even be in pain, but sees and feels that the battle can be won, is for me an invaluable reward.
