Eloi Nin


Physician specialising in Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine


I am a physician specialising in Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine. I have worked in the fields of neurorehabilitation and assessment of physical deficits. I enjoy working in teams, listening to people and learning from them, and keeping my medical and specialist knowledge up to date.

My job in this Unit gives me the chance to offer intervention to patients with brain damage and support them and their relatives during the difficult rehab process. I am committed to providing custom expert care, unaffected by time or other external factors. Also, in this Unit I can work in the field of rehabilitation I like most. Working with and learning from a team made of excellent professionals who cooperate to achieve a common goal is really rewarding.
