Dr. Nikitas Arnaoutoglou, Ph.D – Consultant Psychiatrist


Short Biography

I  am a consultant Psychiatrist and Clinical Lead at the New memory service at Papageorgiou Hospital and the 1st Department of Psychiatry at Aristotle University Thessaloniki.

I also hold a private practice at 30 Agias Sofias Str, Thessaloniki, Greece. I am also a Research Associate at the 1st Dpt of Psychiatry, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki,  Papageorgiou Hospital.

From 2017-2019 I was a visiting researcher at the Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge  collaborating with Prof. J.T. O’Brien and member of the OAP team. Until July 2019, I worked as a consultant in Old Age Psychiatry at the Cambridge & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust and the Windsor Research Unit. From 2017-2018 I was a clinical research fellow working within the same organizations.

From 2015 until 2017, I worked as an H. Clinical and Research Fellow at the Department of Old Age Psychiatry in the Neurobiology of Aging Research Team with Prof. K.P. Ebmeier‘s team,  University of Oxford, UK.
I graduated from the School of Medicine of the  Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece in 2004 and completed my one year  mandatory army conscription, working as a military doctor.

For the next two years I worked as a rural doctor and examined patients living in a remote area of Greece.  In  2011, under the supervision of Prof. St J Baloyannis I received my PhD in dementia, in which I investigated the color perception of demented patients. Four years later, I became a fully board-certified psychiatrist.

I am the administrator and owner of a non-commercial stand-alone website (www.psyxiatros.gr) that has freely performed online anonymized anxiety and depression screening tests in the Greek language (2016-present).

In  collaboration with the European Federation of Psychiatric Trainees and the European Psychiatric Association (EPA), I am trying to normalize psychiatric training schemes and advance practices across the continent.  Thus, I was one of the MOOC facilitators of the 1st EPA Massive Open Online Course titled: Introduction to #CBT for psychiatry and the 1st  Free Online guidebook for psychotherapies.

My current project focuses on identifying accurate and effective screening assessment tools for Dementia with Lewy bodies, via state-of-the-art machine-learning techniques.

My goal is to improve the diagnostic rate of memory and mood disorders in older populations earlier than presented in the clinic and advance psychiatric training.
