Dan Fellows - Menno Germans
Menno Germans, MD
Dr. Germans received his MD from the Academic Medical Center (AMC) in Amsterdam, one of eight university medical centres in the Netherlands. During his neurosurgical residency training at the AMC, which he completed in 2012, he stayed several months at the University Medical Center in Utrecht for differentiation training in neurovascular surgery under the supervision of Professor Luca Regli. Dr. Germans will soon finish his PhD at the AMC in research on optimization of early clinical management of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Upon obtaining his neurosurgical license, Dr. Germans joined the staff at the University Hospital Zürich, one of the renowned teaching hospitals in Europe. Dr. Germans applied and was accepted to the Cerebrovascular Fellowship program at St. Michael’s Hospital for the 2013-14 academic year and is working with Division Head Dr. Loch Macdonald. He chose to come to Toronto because of the vast expertise and experience in the complete diversity of cerebrovascular pathology and the outstanding teaching skills. Moreover, participating in research programs and collaborating with Dr. Macdonald will support him in becoming an expert in the field of SAH. Upon completion of his Dan Fellowship, he intends to bring his clinical experience to one of the academic hospitals that are specialized in neurovascular surgery in Europe and combine it with continuous scientific research to improve the treatment of patients with cerebrovascular pathology in collaboration with Dr. Macdonald and the University of Toronto.
