He graduated from the Medical School of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and completed his specialization in Obstetrics-Gynaecology in 1983. In 1984, his interest in infertility led him to Italy where he was trained for one year on infertility problems (Hysteroscopy, Laparoscopy, Andrology, IVF), under the supervision of Professor Ettore Cittadini, one of the pioneers in the establishment of GIFT (gamete intra-Fallopian transfer) in Europe. In 1997 he attended the works of the Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology department of the Yale University (USA) as a Fellow Visitor. Subsequently, he attended a refresher course at various pioneer IVF centres (Prof. Schoysman Belgium, Jones & Jones Institute, USA). He currently attends an ongoing refresher course at Jones & Jones Institute, in the context of a postgraduate degree in Clinical Embryology and Andrology. Mr. Nikos Prapas was among the pioneers who established transabdominal ultrasound-guided embryo transfer in IVF, while his work includes a large number of scientific publications on infertility.
