Gracias and a complete formation in medicine, la Dra. Barbara Rosado currently es gastroenterologist with subspecialty in hepatic transplantation. Start your studies at the University of Puerto Rico while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in biology before joining the School of Medicine of Medical Sciences.

“Enter the Internal Medicine Program of Medical Sciences, and hire an additional member as chief president. “More fortunately, you have the opportunity to enter one of the most reconnaissance centers of the United States, the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, where I have completed my studies in gastroenterology and completed an additive hepatology and hygienic transplant.” “Luego, regressing to Puerto Rico, and with it the faculty of the Ponce School of Medicine, being the cathedral association in that institution, and being my most stable practice in Ponce.”

Dr. Rosado said that while she was still in the School of Medicine, your great mentors, like Dra. Esther Torres, who plays an important role in my professional career.

“One of the reasons for the lack of internal medicine is because it is a framework that allows me to establish a differential diagnosis for patients. Being in internal medicine, I know that gastroenterology is the era of passionate care, or that it provides diagnostic and screening interventions, such as cervical cancer screening and disinfection to prevent death. “Also, there are many associated diseases such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, autoimmune hepatitis, among others.”

While staying in the current medical field, the specialist prepares for the high demand of patients who seek the assistance of a hepatologist, who can be visited by people with advanced medical care and, after contacting an expert, Puerto Rico of transplants and tampons only specialized human resources, because they are located on the surface of the gastroenterology studios

“I would like to see a return from the United States to Puerto Rico. Our health system should be clear from the point of view of the barriers to accessing treatments such as hepatitis C, which, if released, will be released and any restrictions placed on each patient will benefit the patient. , reconoció. “In principle, follow the therapies for different population locations and these barriers are eliminated.”

Doctor’s journey back to the Isle of Wight, junta with other Irea specialists, takes place in collaboration with other United States institutions, such as the University of Tennessee and the Ochsner Clinic, with the patient in mind the opportunity to recycle a transplant in Puerto Rico if you have a specialized center that is realized.

“In 2005, when I returned to Puerto Rico, I did not have the only privileges at Damas Hospital, but I also paid for it because it favored a patient who established a nurse. There was a young man who was shocked by the outbreak of hepatic hepatitis without associating it with viral infertility, even though he was suffering from autoimmunity and could be transported by air ambulance at the moment in the Mayo Clinic, Florida. Hoy día, esa patiente está bien, está viva, tiene una vida iltil, ha visto crecer a sus hijos y 17 años más tarde sigue siiendo mi patients, ”relató. “Ha sido un reto, pero también un logro muy grande”.

Feminine condition due to generosity in medicine

Unsurprisingly, it does not match the differential gap between the participation of men and women in the same determinants: “we that women do not cross barriers, create points and make friends”.

When I was established at the Mayo Clinic, we had up to 85 consultants in the gastroenterology unit, from the hospitals, only 2 months ago. Between us, we are alone for 2 months and the demos are men ”, record. “I do not think that the sound of the abstaining alleys is due to the fact that they are dominated by men and that the alleys are falling apart, it is permissible to take more than one abutment which has multiple roles in each other, even if it is important leadership ”.

Assimilation, the expert opinion that is important for Hacerle to be involved in his students or society, in the field of education, that a doctor should not play a human role in the mother, office, shadow and professional, and for example construct the balance in order to know if you can do it all, and if you can do it.

“There is always the idea that we can not do everything, or that you are a professional, because quizzes are not present in your life. These are the stigmas that come and go ”.

Empathy and active listening: main roles of the treating physician

For la gastroenterologist, one of the greatest satisfaction is taking into account that the patient who enters the consultation, is sent, examined and respected. “I do not have to worry about curing or curing, but we do not always have to worry, but we can get better and better,” he said.

Dentro of the roles that have a doctor, not limited to the diagnostic, maneuver and treatment of the patients; on the contrary, the paper of a doctor should be transceived and converted into an educator with his patients.

“On the other hand, one of the things that I am passionate about is contributing to the formation of futurists, as one of the things that I do not want to do when I decide to return to Puerto Rico, to form part of a faculty medicine or a school of medicine where powder can be added to the formation of future colleagues, students and residents ”.

Vanguardia medicine for the benefit of patients

Dr. Rosado emphasizes the importation of medicines that are continually in the process of education before being updated on the main necessities of the general population, advances in science and technology.

“Medicine is not aesthetic, it is changing and because doctors have to continue this education process in order to provide the patient with the best quality of service possible,” he said.

Other facets and those dedicated to the expert, as well as the investigation. It is permissible to participate in important studies that have contributed to the positive form in the evolution of treatment against hepatitis C and other conditions.

“Doctors have to have an appetite to contribute to the advancement of science; it’s like that ojalá pudiéramos incorporates a little or so that we can dedicate time to powerless children, so that we can create the unsecured gearboxes that offer the most deserving ones, at a time when we are the best members of the population ”.

The family, its main engine

Como bien mencionaba la gastroenterologist, in order to maintain an adequate balance between your profession and your personal life, you also need a desk for God. As an embargo, assured that with the ayuda of its expo, the Dr. Francisco Torres, the process is by far the most successful and possible in all its juntas.

“Tango dos fajos fabulosos, uno se gradija de quartet ao i mi hija va para undecimo grade, e esa part of educarlos, para que sean sere humansen bien, y de provace para sociedad, también ha sido ike me grande tareas” .

On the other hand, your father, from whom you are guided, has a central position in the distance from your medical career, where you can be sure that there are important values ​​that, if any, are true to life.

“My father always said to me, ‘you do not want to be a heretic, because it is more important that you want to be a part of education’. From the age of 5 with esthetoscopies that are internalized and tightened, there is a tendency for the body to enter into shadows and creations that, within society, it is fundamental that young men and women be educated in order to have a good time mejor ”, concluded Dr. Barbara Rosado.
