Mildred Vanessa López Cabrera describes herself and the various roles and memberships she has in her career and the direction she hopes for her career to move with the help and community provided by the AMEE Fellowship.
I am passionate about educational research which has motivated me to work on a Ph.D. of Educational Innovation, and a fellowship program from the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education (FAIMER) Latin-America Institute in Santiago, Chile.
I am a member of Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME), Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE), The Network for Health, Federación Latinoamericana de Simulación Clínica y Seguridad del Paciente (FLASIC), and in Mexico in the National Academy of Medical Education.
I am the Director of Educational Innovation and Research at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences at Tecnológico de Monterrey, where I also participate as a professor in the graduate programs in the Master of Quality and Productivity, and the Medical Specialty of Quality of Clinical Care. My training is in engineering with an emphasis on innovation. I have a Master's Degree in Quality Systems and Productivity. My research is in the development of innovation in pedagogical models and in the organizational management of educational institutions.
This journey has been an initial preparation for me as an educational leader, but belonging to the thriving AMEE community would be an intensive learning experience that will help me to continue growing as a professional. It would allow me to participate in more engaging projects with senior medical educators with whom I share a passion. This synergy would result in significant contributions to medical education.
