Grant of University Scholarship

The Paediatric Surgery Clinic of the Medical School of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) is located at the University General Hospital “ATTIKON” and has been operating since 2016. It aims to provide secondary and tertiary care to infants, toddlers, children and adolescents; to train the undergraduate students of the NKUA Medical School as well as the interns at the Hospital’s University Paediatric Clinic and the University Surgery Clinics; and to conduct fundamental, experimental and clinical research.

In 2019, the Foundation covered the remuneration of a university scholar for one year in order to contribute to the clinic’s optimal operation. The university scholar, who has been trained in the field of paediatric surgery, will provide particularly important services, both in the daily operation of the clinic as well as the treatment of patients and will enhance its educational and research activity.

  • During the Clinic’s operation in the 2018-2019 period, 110 patients were hospitalised, 150 patients visited the Outpatients Department, while approximately 1,000 patients were examined in the Emergency Department.


“The presence of an additional doctor will contribute to the improved operation of the Clinic; whose staffing needs increase daily. The Foundation’s avidity fills us with hope, joy and courage to continue the difficult and important work we must fulfil in terms of prevention and the children’s treatment.”
