Thomas Papadimos, clinical professor of anesthesiology in the College of Medicine, has been awarded a Fulbright All-Disciplines Award to Athens, Greece.
Papadimos will teach a palliative medicine course and a mechanical circulatory support course at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens School of Medicine during October – December 2020.
Through this Fulbright, Papadimos hopes to bring the Ohio State College of Medicine and University of Athens School of Medicine into a closer, collaborative partnership in research and faculty exchange, especially now that both universities have signed their second five-year memorandum of understanding.
“I hope to provide subject matter for students and residents in Greece on these topics because of the recent flight of many physicians from Greece due to the 2008 debt crisis, which 12 years later still affects the country,” Papadimos said.
No stranger to international academic medicine, Papadimos is a founding member of the American College of Academic International Medicine and has been a visiting professor for six years at the University of Athens and at Wenzhou Medical University in Wenzhou, China.
