Maura Gabriela Felea

I attended the university studies at the Faculty of Medicine of the “Grigore T. Popa” University of Medicine of Iasi, Romania. The specialty of Geriatrics-Gerontology crowned these efforts, including a modular year at the IMTR – Ste. Therese – St. Joseph Hospitals, in a project of interuniversity collaboration with the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium.

Returning to Iasi, I have applied for the position of teacher in the Medical Semiology Discipline at the “Grigore T. Popa” University, advancing to the position of Head of Works.
The experience of these years has shown me the role of kinetotherapy, psychotherapy and melotherapy and, recently, the role of osteopathy in the complex management of the patients.
And my steps did not stop here, being guided to Prevention and Sports Medicine.
