Dr Aliki Andreou is an anatomical pathologist based at Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology's St Andrew's Hospital laboratory, Toowoomba. She has expertise in a broad range of general surgical pathology.
Dr Andreou studied her Bachelor of Science at The University of Queensland, majoring in pharmacology, before undertaking medicine at Melbourne University. She graduated in 2005 and undertook her residency at the Geelong Hospital, Victoria. Dr Andreou went on to train as an anatomical pathologist at various institutions including: St John of God Pathology, Geelong; The Royal Brisbane Women's and Children's Hospital; the Prince Charles Hospital; and Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology, Brisbane. She gained Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia in early 2013. She joined Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology's Toowoomba laboratory that same year.
Dr Andreou reports on a broad range of hospital and community histology specimens, including urological, gastrointestinal, dermatological, head and neck, and breast. She performs frozen sections, working closely with the surgical teams, and attends procedures in the radiology department and the hospital's collection rooms that require a pathologist.
Toowoomba is a large regional practice with a catchment area that encompasses the populations of the southwest QLD from Ipswich to Quilpie, Goondiwindi to Longreach, and over the Northern NSW border to Tenterfield. Dr Andreou is an active participant in the local medical community and regularly attends multidisciplinary clinical meetings in conjunction with colleagues in the surgical, oncology and radiology specialities, and maintains strong ties with community general practice, being actively involved in GP education. Dr Andreou strongly believes that this close working relationship is essential in providing high standards of patient care in a regional and rural setting and believes Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology is uniquely placed for this.
Additionally, Dr Andreou is passionate and committed to ongoing education of trainees in anatomical pathology, having had teaching responsibilities of junior registrars and medical students throughout her own medical training. She is a regular participant in continuing education activities, attending conferences both nationally and internationally. She has also collaborated with her colleagues in other medical specialties to publish papers and present posters.
