«Between my bachelor’s degree and the specialization stage, I dedicated a four years period to basic medical assistance, which aroused my interest in Cardiology and Pediatrics, so I decided to introduce myself to the MIR to attend regulated training in Pediatric Surgery, a specialty that, beyond what I expected when I chose it, is able to offer an extensive range of knowledge about the organic physiology and surgical anatomy of the child from before birth until adulthood. Later, fed up with offering partial and incomplete solutions to patients, and with the luck of having almost literally stumbled upon Dr. Joan Vidal-Jové and his global vision of health, I decided to learn his medicine by working alongside him. «
