Introduction

I completed my medical training in 2009, in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. That same year, I started a research fellowship in hepatobiliary surgery at the National Institute of Medical Science and Nutrition, in Mexico City, under Dr. Miguel Angel Mercado Diaz, a world expert in biliary surgery and the preeminent authority in the treatment of bile duct injuries.

In 2010, through the National Examination for Medical Residencies (ENARM) program, I matched at the National Institute of Medical Science and Nutrition where I completed 5-year of training in General Surgery. During this time, served as the Interim Chief Resident during part of my fourth year and as the Chief during my entire fifth year of training. I completed my residency training in 2015 and move to the US to continue my training.

Because of my interest in clinical outcomes research, in 2015 I enrolled at Boston University in their Master in Public Health program, with a double concentration in Biostatistics and Global Health. At the same time, at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, I was fortunate to complete the SAFRA Research Fellowship in Cardiac Surgery, under Dr. Tsuyoshi Kaneko, a leading authority in the field of structural heart disease.
