Specializations & Research topics

Primary and secondary CNS lymphoma, neurolymphomatosis, neuroimaging of primary brain tumors and neurologic complications of cancer.

Why did you choose to enter the IPOKRaTES STUDENTS organization?

I choose Neurology because it simply is the coolest thing one can do as a physician. Neuro-Oncology allowed me to acquire a subspecialty skill but still exposes me to the entire spectrum of Neurology.

What makes IPOKRaTES STUDENTS so unique for you?

IPOKRaTES STUDENTS are uniquely motivated. The course is run by students who have taken the initiative to put together a curriculum, recruit international preceptors, and identify a didactically enriching group of patients. Students signing up for the course are eager to learn, energetic, focused, and fun to work with.

Which has been your best experience with IPOKRaTES STUDENTS so far?

The patient examinations and presentations are definitely the highlight.
