I am a founding member and past co-chair of AMEE CPD Committee, have been chairing diverse international education committees, with special emphasis for the International Council of Ophthalmology and the Ophthalmology Foundation and integrate Mentors Across Borders.
As a Portuguese MD specialized in ophthalmology by background, I have been fortunate to cross paths with fantastic mentors, amazing leaders, who have enabled me to shape and refine my passion for medical education.
Beyond an intrinsic professional role, medical education has become for me an exciting field of inquiry with amazing opportunities to co-work with fantastic international leaders in education and expand my experience.
Being a founding member and a past co-chair of AMEE CPD Committee fills me with great honor and responsibility. I feel grateful and fortunate to have been serving as chair, diverse international education committees, with special emphasis for the International Council of Ophthalmology and the Ophthalmology Foundation. I am proud to integrate Mentors Across Borders, an amazing community of scholars and leaders in medical education.
While nurturing a common passion, fellows swirl together as a community, with a sense of complicity, co-creating, propelled to merge their success with their teams with a gestalt perspective and professional identity refinement.
Flying alongside in constant learning and improvement, actively contributing to the ever growing and inspiring AMEE community opens an exciting pathway to make a change by education.
I feel the need to give back, so much I have been receiving!
