Medical education has direct impacts in global health. My work with Cooperacion Ortopedica Americano Nicarguense (COAN), a non-profit organization charged with teaching orthopaedic trauma to medical students and physicians in Nicaragua, launched my interest in medcal education in the global context, and earned me an honorary professorship from the National Autonomic University of Nicaragua, Leon.

My educational work continues therough IGOT, working to improve the knowledge and delivery of orthopaedic surgery worldwide.
