I have an MD degree from the University of Cuenca-Ecuador (2010) and a Masters in Health Administration for Local Development from the Technical University of Loja, UTPL (2013) at the moment I am pursuing an OBGYN residency in the US for 2016 while I am working as an Auditing Physician for the Jose Carrasco Arteaga Social Security Hospital in Cuenca-Ecuador.

My interests are Gynecology/Obstetrics, sexual and reproductive health for adolescents and research for which I have been involved in different research projects:

  • Project CERCA (Community-embedded Reproductive health Care for Adolescents in Latin America) a European Union funded, multicentric project working to develop primary health care to improve the responsiveness to the sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents in Cuenca-Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua (2012-2013).
  • Senior Teacher Assistant for the Principles and Practice of Clinical Research Course for Harvard Medical School since 2013.
  • I was a student in the GFMER in the Training Course in Sexual and Reproductive Health Research course in 2013 and have been involved as a Country coordinator since 2014. I believe this course is an incredible opportunity to strengthen your knowledge and skills in both Sexual, Reproductive Health and Reseach and I will be delighted to assist you along the ride!
