I was awarded the 242 scholarship from the Hubert Tuor Foundation to cover my tuition and expenses related to my enrollment in the combined Fellowship and Master of Education and Leadership in the Health Professions at Johns Hopkins University, USA. As a young medical doctor, graduate from Faculty of Medicine at the University of Geneva and a computer science major, I aspire to pursue an academic career in the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) as well as in the University of Geneva as an attending physician in the Anesthesiology Division while holding a dual specialty in both Anesthesiology and General Internal Medicine.
Extremely passionate by education, specifically regarding clinical skills teaching, the scholarship granted by the generous Hubert Tuor Foundation will allow me to achieve formal skills in the field of education, to perfect my research skills and evidence-based methodology and will give me the necessary tools to form and supervise a research group. Moreover, the scholarship will allow me to establish networking opportunities and scientific collaborations between the Faculty of Medicine of the UNIGE and the prestigious Faculty of Medicine of Johns Hopkins University.
Thanks to the precious support from the FHT I will have the necessary funding and tools to combine both my medical knowledge as well as my computer science skills to try and help our medical faculty and our future doctors to be better prepared for the challenges of the future by pursuing my research projects concerning the integration of technology and innovation in pre and post-graduate medical education.
I feel extremely honored to be a part of the 242 and I thank the Hubert Tuor Foundation from the bottom of my heart for their support and confidence. I am delighted to be a part of the philanthropic community created by the FHT and very excited to be able to give back to the foundation and to society.
