Taki Galanopoulos

My medical odyssey began in Vancouver Canada where I completed my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the School of Kinesiology at Simon Fraser University. I luckily decided to attend Ross University and it’s been great ever since. I completed the bulk of my rotations in NYC and after graduating, worked for the university as a junior faculty member in Miami. Residency took me to the University of Louisville in the department of Family and Geriatric Medicine. I’m in my final year and am one of the chief residents. I also am the US resident representative on the board of directors to the North American Primary Care Research Group (NAPCRG).

From second semester onward, I enjoyed helping fellow classmates and underclassmen by tutoring as a TA, or just going over info outside of the "shacks" while getting dinner. Throughout my rotations, while junior faculty and even now as a resident physician, it gives me great pleasure in offering guidance to those about to start their own journey in the US regardless of "intended" specialty. It is especially gratifying to watch my MERP students now enter clinicals.

I welcome the opportunity to serve on the Alumni Council and thank you for your support.
