Dr Nóra Szabó graduated from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Szeged in 2005. She spent her residency training at the Szeged Pediatric Clinic, before completing a Ph.D.. Dr Szabó studied at the Szeged Doctoral School of Clinical Medicine, where her research field was developmental abnormalities in the central nervous system. She gained practical medical experience at the Szeged Pediatric Clinic and several Semmelweis University training locations, before completing a specialization in neonatology and pediatrics in 2015, and a specialization in pediatric neurology in 2018. Dr Szabó's main place of work is the Epilepsy and Neurology Outpatient Clinic at Buda Children's Hospital (ÉKC, New Szent János Hospital and Clinic), where she has been working since 2013.
In addition to dealing with epilepsy and development neurology in childhood, Dr Szabó is also interested in the development of rare neurological diseases and their genetic background, and strives to keep fully up-to-date with new scientific developments and innovative diagnostic and treatment methods. In 2019, she won a scholarship to take part in research at the Cambridge University Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute as part of the EPNS Short-term Fellowship Program.
Dr Szabó takes a holistic approach to care. She prefers to make a comprehensive investigation of any issue by not only examining the symptoms, but also getting to know the child and their family. This helps her to identify the most suitable treatment path and gives the child the best opportunity for recovery and the preservation of their health.
In her free time, Dr Szabó usually enjoys reading, and has even completed a qualification in literary therapy. She believes strongly in the developmental and healing power of books, and that they can often help us to find the answer to important questions and cope more effectively with difficult life situations.
