University of Seville Faculty of Medicine

I am a fifth-year student from the University of Seville interested in exploring the boundaries of medical knowledge, trying to learn from different backgrounds. The universe is immense, and science provides us with a powerful tool to engage with its mysteries, despite that I still got more questions than answers. As a consequence of this, life offers us a never-ending game of pursuing new scientific evidence to better understand nature and ourselves.

Tackling Mental Health Care

We, as future health care providers, must recognize that patients affected by mental illnesses will need our support and advocacy. We must also understand that some patients might not have the time or financial stability to seek treatment or therapy. Regardless, we should explore other long-term treatment options and strive to make mental health care easily accessible nationally.

Mentor-Mentee Relationships in Medicine

The best mentor-mentee relationships I am a part of have allowed me to make mistakes while encouraging me and giving me targeted ways of doing better the next time around. They have also consisted of developing realistic goals and expectations. But, above all, they have taken what I bring to the table and helped elevate what is already there, not change it.
