On 20 April, MD 3rd Year student Stavros Tsentemeidis and MBBS CS-Year student Katerina Stergiopoulou had the opportunity to participate in the 1st Panhellenic Congress for Medical Students ‘Leucippus’ in Alexandroupolis, Greece.  Both students took part in a round table discussion under the general title ‘Primary intracerebral sarcomas; How rare they really are.’  Stavros and Katerina presented a case on ‘Low Grade Fibromyxoid Sarcoma.’

MedNews asked Stavros to talk about his experience:

I was lucky enough to be a part of a huge medical student conference which took place in Alexandroupolis, Greece, the 1st Panhellenic Leucippus Conference. This opportunity was made available to us by Dr Dimitrios Kanakis.  Apart from the lectures on a huge variety of subjects, the conference offered some practical skills classes that could help medical students understand and perform techniques which are bound to be used in the future. Furthermore, the conference offered medical debates involving ethics and different approaches to the same medical condition. I enjoyed listening to experienced doctors sharing experiences and “arguing”.  I would like to thank my co-student Katerina Stergiopoulou, who worked and presented the case with me, and Dr Kanakis, who gave us the opportunity to join something new and exciting.
