Spanish, Catalan

Assistant Anesthesiologist at the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital since June 2007. Currently I am the Cardiology Department Coordinator and Coordinator for areas outside of surgery (Hemodynamics, Diagnostic Imaging, Outpatient Department). I am head of the cardiac anesthetic group, who manage the staff working in this subspecialism, department activities, covering on-call shifts, and pay management. My professional role involves working in a multidisciplinary team with highly complex patients. My profile is oriented towards conflict-resolution. I hope to continue developing my career as a pediatric anesthesiologist in a hospital like the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, where I can continue to offer my experience and knowledge.

I am a positive, dedicated and motivated person who believes that change is the deciding factor in personal growth.
