Juan José García García
Paediatrics and specific areas
Head of the Paediatrics department
After obtaining a degree in Medicine (University of Barcelona), I began my internship in Paediatrics at Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona Children's Hospital. When I finished, I had a strong connection with Paediatric Emergencies and the Short Stay unit at the same hospital. At the same time I embarked on my scientific career and was awarded a PhD in Medicine in 1999. I have participated in a number of competitive projects and I have supervised four doctoral theses. I have specialised in paediatric infectious diseases and care for hospitalised children. I am the teaching coordinator for the hospital's interns and have been the head of the Paediatrics department since 2013. I am credited as a tenured Lecturer, and I am currently an associate Lecturer at the University of Barcelona. "I am in charge of a team of great professionals from whom I learn every day. What I like most is to travel with my family. Whenever you want, I challenge you to a game of volleyball."
