“I was drawn to UF by the collegiality and breadth of cases I get to participate in, from obstetrics to liver transplants. I have had the opportunity to expand my clinical skills in those areas and am now part of both the Division of Obstetric Anesthesia and Division of Liver and Transplant Anesthesia. I am passionate about teaching residents in the perioperative environment and enjoy participating in the next generation of anesthesiologist learning. I created a morning lecture series for obstetric anesthesia using a flipped-classroom format to enhance learning. I also mentor residents, give lectures, and serve as a mock oral board examiner. UF provides ample research opportunities and a strong support structure. I have been able to pursue my research interests in two subspecialties while contributing to simulation research. My clinical duties include serving as anesthesiology clinical staffing and scheduling coordinator, residency rotation director for the anesthesia general surgery rotation, and quality officer of the Presurgical Clinic. These roles enable me to hone my skills in communications, operating room management, cost-effective strategizing, and scheduling. I enjoy living in Gainesville, which has a small-town vibe, easy living, and a centralized location for easy road trips.”
UF has a long history of critical care excellence, which is my subspecialty expertise. At UF, I have the opportunity to work with a very talented, extremely collegial faculty. We’re leaders in simulation and innovation. I enjoy the environment of inquiry as well as the opportunity to teach the next generation of physicians. I’ve had many opportunities to serve the specialty, including serving on the Board of Directors of the American Board of Anesthesiology as one of 12 physician directors and its President for 2018-19. I have also served on the Board of Managers of the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) International, which allowed me to travel to Singapore twice. I enjoy living in a college town with an abundance of activities and resources. Gainesville is a wonderful place to live!
“As a UF alum, I returned to Gainesville in 2006 because I wanted to provide outstanding cardiovascular and cardiothoracic anesthesia for some of the sickest patients in a place with a high volume and variety of complex cases. UF Health has consistently been a leader in Florida for heart and lung transplantation and major vascular and aortic surgery. I am humbled and grateful to continue the tradition of excellence in perioperative cardiac ultrasound, especially for transaortic catheter aortic valve replacement and percutaneous mitral valve replacement surgery, in world-class facilities. UF has allowed me flexibility in pursuing my range of interests in patient care, teaching, research, and administration. I thoroughly enjoy educating and mentoring eager undergraduate and medical students, as well as training and supervising our anesthesiology residents and cardiothoracic fellows to ensure excellent patient care and safety. In my administrative roles, I have the opportunity to promote healthcare workforce diversity. The College of Medicine has allowed me to be a resource for recruiting, shadowing, and mentoring. I participate in community outreach through the Office for Diversity & Health Equity, particularly educating K-12 grade school students. I motivate our youth to aspire to careers in medicine. Gainesville is a family-friendly city with a plethora of activities for children, including a perfect mix of entertainment, performing arts, museums, sports, and culturally diverse opportunities.”
"I came to UF to train at one of the best anesthesiology residencies in the country where I knew I would have the opportunity to take care of the most medically complex patients in a relaxed and supportive environment. That same need — to care for the sickest of the sick and the smallest of the small — along with a love for learning the science and art of perioperative echocardiography, led to my clinical interests in adult and pediatric cardiac anesthesia. While my academic efforts have evolved from research to more administrative assignments, my clinical niches have remained at the core of my professional identity, and UF is one of the few places in the country where I can maintain an active practice straddling both worlds. It is a privilege to be part of a cohesive perioperative team while helping to educate our residents and fellows. After meeting my wife during my internship here, we decided that Gainesville would also be a wonderful place to raise a family. Our children have received excellent educations in a nurturing, small-town environment. In Gainesville, we have been able to enjoy family kayaking, scuba diving, rocket watching … and even alligator hunting!"
"I wanted to complete my residency in Anesthesiology at UF because of the great quality of the program, the type of cases that come here, and the opportunity to train with outstanding faculty. Our department is a pioneer in simulation, which I found to be very important for my training. Location was also an important consideration, and my family and I decided to return to Gainesville because of the excellent quality of life here while we raise two young children. I enjoy the opportunity to share my knowledge through teaching and helping others attain their career goals. Having learners around me is an endless source of interesting discussions and conversations, which are intellectually important for me. At UF, I feel that I am supported to do my job the way I think is most beneficial for my patients and their families. We serve patients from all socioeconomic backgrounds; for me, this is very important, especially because most of my patients are children, and I believe that providing good healthcare for all children is one of the most important investments we can make for their future and for the future of our country."
“The complexity of cases, availability of clinical experiences, and expertise of mentors made UF the perfect place to develop my skill set after I completed medical school in Colombia and research training at the Mayo Clinic. During my residency and fellowship at UF Health, I had access to incredible mentors, whose support allowed me to pursue a career as a pain physician. This path has enabled me to make a direct impact on the quality of life in our community. The Pain Medicine Division at UF in Gainesville provides an incredible array of advanced procedures, from interventional to non-interventional, minimally invasive techniques that are not offered elsewhere. The resources and supportive staff here allow me to help restore functionality in some of the most complex patients, many of whom cannot be cared for elsewhere. We have the unique opportunity to share knowledge with a new generation of physicians in our residents, fellows, and trainees; I find satisfaction in being part of their transformation to better professionals. As a young professional, Gainesville is a perfect environment. It offers a wealth of outdoor activities, including mountain and road biking, that I can enjoy 12 months of the year, as well as access to tourist destinations.”
