Biography of an Ecuadorian Resident

Amanda is one of the Ecuadorian residents at Hospital Pedro Vicente Maldonado.  She has a focused curriculum specific to the Rural Hospital Model.  This is one of the best programs in the country for medical training.  She has written her bio in both Spanish and English!

“My name is Amanda Elizabeth Tene Rueda. I am 26 years old. I was born in Quito, but my family is originally from Loja. I studied in Universidad Central del Ecuador. I was interested in family medicine when I was working as a rural physician in San Gabriel.  I liked my first rotation in Hospital PVM.  It was very hard and I learn very much about rational medicine, even though I never had enough time to study!!

I think family medicine is very important in order to improve the health conditions in my country, especially in rural areas. Fortunately, I can dedicate more time to my career because I don’t have children or any other huge responsibility. I am single, my family is big — 8 members, I am the second, but I am the only physician.

Mi nombre es Amanda Elizabeth Tene Rueda.  Tengo 26 años.  Naci en Quito, pero mi familia es de  Loja.  Estudié en La Universidad Central del Ecuador. Hice el año de medicatura rural en San Gabriel provincia del Carchi.  Ahí me nació la el interés por la medicina familiar. Me interesó mucho desde el principio la idea de hacer un postgrado en hospital rural. La primera rotación ha cumplido con las espectativas, aunque siempre hace falta mas tiempo para estudiar. Estoy contenta de haber escogido la carrera.

Pienso que la medicina familiar será un pilar importante para el mejoramiento de la salud sobre todo en las comunidades rurales.  Afortunadamente, puedo entregar mucho más tiempo al postgrado porque no tengo hijos, ni otra responsabilidad mayor. Mi familia es un poco grande somos 8 personas, soy la segunda, la única médico de la familia.
