Carlos Gonzalez QuesadaBrookline, Massachusetts, United States
I am a medical resident at one of the most respected hospitals in the United States. I work with top physicians, policy-makers and scientists in the United States to shape health care delivery in here and in the rest of the world (including Haiti, Rwanda and Mexico).
Currently, I am a Clinical Fellow in Medicine at Harvard Medical School and an Internal Medicine and Global Health Equity resident at Brigham and Women’s Hospital which is the largest hospital of the Longwood Medical and academic area in Boston and Harvard Medical School's second largest teaching affiliate.
Here’s just a bit of what we can cover in our PivotPlanet session(s):
• How to become an attractive candidate to top internal medicine residency programs in the United States.
• How to become involved in global health delivery projects around the world.
• How to create a top medical treatise.
• How to survive your first year in an internal medicine residency in the United States.
• How to write a top medical treatise in a country different than the United States
I am involved with top non-profit organizations working in global health delivery and am editor-in-chief of Guia EXARMED, a best-seller and top general medicine treatise which aids in the training of medical students and primary care providers of lower- and middle-income regions within Mexico and Latin America.
I earned my MD from Universidad De La Salle (Mexico City) in 2007. As a medical student, I trained in the National Health Institutes, a group of public hospitals that provides tertiary and quaternary health care to the most underserved populations in Mexico.
During my training I also worked in the Department of Interventional Cardiology of the National Institute of Cardiology (Mexico City) where I conducted genetic research on heart disease in the Mexican population. After medical school I attended Baylor College of Medicine to study the mechanisms responsible for orchestrating the healing response of cardiac injury during events such as myocardial infarction, hypertension, diabetes and obesity.
I continued my research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, exploring the therapeutic targets for attenuation of adverse remodeling following cardiac injury to avoid the development of heart disease.
