Montserrat Dolz Abadia
My professional career has been framed by an interest in Psychiatry in general and particularly in serious mental illnesses. I started out in clinical care and research (this is why I completed my physician resident training [MIR] at one of the best institutes of Psychiatry in London). I then transitioned to early care and prevention and specialised in child and youth Psychiatry. Later on I developed a line of research on the phases prior to developing mental illnesses. This is a fascinating subject and I never get tired of it. I love to hike in the mountains and swim in rivers with icy waters.
