I am a Clinical Professor in the Department of Anesthesia, Stanford University Medical School. I am Brazilian and completed medical school, anesthesia training, and my PhD in Brazil. I came to Stanford University for a sabbatical year in 2007. It was a great fit on both sides, and I decided on a long-term career at Stanford. I graduated from “The Master of Academic Medicine program” at University of Southern California in 2014. I am now in my fifth-year doctoral program in education at University of Illinois at ChicagoAt Stanford I have been involved with the resident education not only direct supervision, but by initiating and working on several educational projects (Development and implementation of OSCEs, new lecture format “ libero”, Assessing the Workplace Culture and Learning Climate, and use of Entrustable Professional Activities as a framework for assessment for learning). I currently serve as one of the Associate Designated Institutional Official, Associate Residency Program Directors, Chair of the Education Committee; Co-Director of Teaching Scholars Program. My clinical activity has focused on anesthesia for orthopedic surgery, particularly orthopedic total joint replacements. My areas of interest are: Developing, leading and evaluating programs; Designing curricula and assessing learners and Designing, implementing and studying innovations.
