My name is Juan Carlos and I am 30 years old. I was born and have always lived in Quito, Ecuador. I studied in a well-known school, Colegio Media. I have very fond memories of living in Quito. I graduated from medical school at the Central University of Ecuador and then applied to the Andean Health and Development post-graduate family medicine residency program. I am interested in the different ways of approaching medicine. I like to view medicine in both a biological and a psycho-social light.
Andean Health & Development has been a great experience! I always hoped to be part of an institution that really has a primary objective: to provide care to the neediest communities and in places where they really need health services.
I am growing every day with this program. I am learning medicine while reaching more needy people in a rural part of my country.
I’m single, I’m the third of four siblings, my parents and my family are very close and have always supported me. I thank Andean Health for this opportunity to further my career while serving those in need.
