Mr Dimitris Syllouris, President of the European Party (EVROKO) visited the Medical School where he was given a tour and had the chance to meet with students, staff and faculty.  Answering to questions of news reporters Mr. Syllouris said ‘this is the first medical school in Cyprus which is now going into its second year of operation with astonishing results.  This is an initiative by the University of Nicosia to create a new infrastructure to the medical system of Cyprus, which wants to become both a medical and educational centre; and when we learn that most of the students come from the U.S. and Canada, this is a “seal” of recognition in practice and not in theory.  The state needs to embrace this effort and support it as much as it can’.
