Greece, on average, attracts more than 17.5 million tourists each year.  Despite the crisis facing the country, this number is not likely to change dramatically.  However, the recession has greatly affected the employment of medical personnel.  Many doctors for example, are not only immigrating abroad, but also seeking employment on Greek islands in order to provide their services to tourists.  This raises the question: Is there a difference between managing local patients and tourists from other lands?

History of Athens

A Brief Reference to the History of Athens

Athens was named according to the Greek mythology from competition that the goddess Athena had with Poseidon  about who will become protector of the city. The myth says that Poseidon gave a spring with sea water whilst Athena offered an olive tree as she touched the ground of the sacred rock of the Acropolis. The people of Athens choose Athena as their protector and so the city was named after the goddess of wisdom. The myth is symbolic but the two Gods symbolising the strength of Athens as a city of wisdom and as a sea power. The first settlement of Athens 3000 BC was situated on the rock of Acropolis.
