Mathew Economides: ‘Very unexpected and humbling to be nominated’

A dual anaesthetic and intensive care trainee, Dr Economides is -according to his colleagues- a welcome sight at any clinical emergency and has shown strong leadership and outstanding clinical performance.

“It was very unexpected and humbling to be nominated, let alone win,” Dr Economides said told The Pulse.

“I’ve always been very self-conscious about whether I’ve been doing a good job, so to learn that I hold the esteem of so many of my colleagues is a real honour.

“The credit from my clinical skill to my professional standards are things I inherited from innumerable supervisors and mentors, who were kind enough to teach and lead by example. I really hope I can pay that forward to the same degree,” he concluded.
