I completed my residency in Pediatrics and Specific Areas at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital between 2005 and 2009. Subsequently, I held the post of head of residents for 2 years (2009–2011).

In 2009, I joined the Critical Paediatric and Neonatal Transport Department, where I still work. I also provided care in the Neonatology Department between 2009 and 2013. I joined the hospital’s Paediatric Department in 2011 as an attending physician. I still work as a ward pediatrician and on the transport of critically ill children.
