Psychotherapy and art doctor - Alexander Derkach
Updated: Mar 10, 2021
Our ARTE.M association asked Alexander a few questions.
Alexander: My father was a military doctor. So I chose medical school to try and develop all of my passions, and to be able to choose later. During my teen age I went to an art school, as well as to a sports school. I was an editor of our school information newspaper - we released a new edition every week with caricatures and pictures for festivals. There was a time when I received money prizes for sport achievements, and later as a student I’ve been playing music at a restaurant for 5 years or so. I’m also fond of languages, and I was certified as a military interpreter. I worked for 17 years as a CEO for pharmaceutical companies, including German ones. While at the same time, I’ve had the title “Artist” on my name card for 35 years now, and have had a pencil or a brush in my hand ever since the age of 10. But as for medicine - it happens so that my wife is a doctor too. And so is my daughter, who lives in Sweden for many years now. Medicine is our family thing.
