Dr. Panayiotis (Panos) ECONOMOU

Clinical Professor of Surgery
Foundation Chair, Department of Surgery
University of Nicosia Medical School
Honorary Senior Lecturer, St George’s, University of London
CY-1700, Nicosia, Cyprus


I studied medicine in the (UK) United Kingdom (University of Manchester) being awarded an Honours degree. I trained in the UK as a surgeon and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons FRCS (Edinburgh) (currently also a member of the Faculty of Surgical Trainers) and FRCS (England) (currently also a member of the board of examiners). Moving to Cyprus I founded a small private Surgical Hospital which I still run today. For many years there was no opportunity for medical research so I did research in engineering and achieved an international patent on a new kind of transmission. I am an active member of the Council of the Cyprus Surgical Society (also ex-president) and helped organize multiple international surgical conferences. With the advent of the first Medical School in 2011, I started teaching surgical anatomy and surgery and set up the Department of Surgery of which I am the Foundation Chair.
