1st Cardiology Department

The 1st Cardiology Department was founded in 1992. From its foundation our aim was to treat any cardiac disorder according to the existing international guidelines. Our clinical team is continuously ready to manage the whole spectrum of Clinical Cardiology and provide full support to the other medical and surgical specialties.

Academic and research activities

These activities are seen in the CVs of the members of the clinic. Our Pubmed indexed publications can be seen below.


Our Department has organized the bi-monthly scientific cardiology meeting where interesting cases are presented, literature is reviewed and common clinical practices within the hospital are agreed. We participate every year in the scientific program of the hospital (cases on Wednesdays, lectures on Thursdays). We offer training of young doctors, participants of “A Bgenopoulos” program. Regular tutorials in educational programs for trainees in Cardiology specialty of many State and University hospitals.
