The 1st International Conference on Rehabilitation was completed with great success at Metropolitan College

About the conference

Opening Remarks

We are delighted to have you with us to participate in our 1st International Rehabilitation Conference organized by the School of Health Sciences of Metropolitan College.

The various aspects of rehabilitation are either the main study area for the majority of the allied-health programmes taught at Metropolitan College, or represent a field of study where many of them converge to. So, this explains the idea of organizing such a conference at MC.

I think it’s worth mentioning for those who do not happen to know it, that the School of Health Sciences is by far the largest among Colleges in our region, offering 10 programmes of study in collaboration with 4 UK Universities and almost 200 contracted clinical placements. The students’ population has now reached the number of more than 2200 across the 7 campuses in Greece, whereas the number of academic staff is more than 250 across all programmes of study of this specific School.

This is a great moment for the School of Health Sciences as the opening of this Conference marks the start of a new chapter of its history. As stated by Dimitris Diamantis, Director General at Metropolitan College.
