Today Dr. Marietta Vazquez is a pediatrician and pediatrician and associate dean of the Yale School of Medicine, but she began at a very young age, for what she defines as an appreciation for her pediatrician, Who never inspired fear in them. ,

“I wasn’t afraid to go to the doctor, my pediatrics were very friendly. From a very young age I knew I wanted to be a doctor, I always loved science. Since I was young, I was my pediatrician I liked the specialty and the fact that a person comes to terms with pain, and will find a professional who can find a solution”, she told the Journal of Medicine and Public Health enthusiastically.

He specified that medicine has many beautiful and satisfying aspects, but pediatrics is focused on prevention and this attracted him, because health should be a priority. However, he knows the challenges he faces, serving a Hispanic community in the United States.

“One of the areas I work in and I am proud to serve migrant patients, I have a clinic for them. Many of those stories are hard and painful, but what you do is that you keep something so hard and emotional, I turn it into inspiration for a field that advocates for children crossing the border alone. are,” he said.

One aspect that he finds particularly difficult is that within his medical management he always gives the best at a clinical level, but he knows that on many occasions children are unable to afford money from their parents. Will not be able to rely on adequate remedies or because they take too much work and there is no one to help complete the recipe.

“That’s where no matter how much you do, everything falls apart,” she said, and so she feels inspired to give her best for the benefit of children and young people, because of her opinion. In “The patient is not just a symptom, he is a complete being.”

The patient’s experience that marked his life

Dr Vazquez explained that between the ages of 15 and 16 she was a patient due to an important operation that had to be done on her leg, but everything went wrong and she could not walk for two years, the fact that she specially made. Reconsider whether he should study medicine.

“It was a strong moment as my medicine norm had fallen. That’s where I understood it was hard to be patient, it was a turning point. At the end of the road if I kept finding health professionals who helped me continue my health.” Taught me to lay. He taught me the human part,” he said.

She remembers the experience as interesting, the procedure that led her to recover, as the reconstructive surgeon took part of her skin and reconstructed her leg, a fact that marked her as she had a relationship with him. Had friendly relations and understood that medicine was his passion.

Study in Puerto Rico

The pediatrician studied at the Medical Sciences Campus in the early 1990s, when the HIV epidemic was booming, and there she found stories that gave her the impetus for research and pediatric infection science.

His first patient at that time was a 7-year-old boy who died of HIV two weeks later. “And what it did was inspire me to investigate more and the importance of medical research. Brilliant training in Puerto Rico”.

He insists that he believes in his 29-year career that he has difficulties in all matters, as he has distanced himself from even his colleagues.

“I’m a weeper and emotional one, I cried with a patient at a psychiatric evaluation once, and my mentor told me I wouldn’t make a good doctor, and over the years I understood that it didn’t make me a bad doctor. but that I sympathize with them”, said.

Teaching and Medicine at Yale

The teaching was somewhat gradual and organic for the specialist, who believes she has found a home away from home, although fortunately, as she herself describes it, there is a large Latino community where she works. She serves.

“It is a beautiful field and there is no greater satisfaction than being in the health sector. It is difficult to think about it, seek help, it is important to give advice. Learn from your mistakes, and don’t think you have to be like others. There is a great need for Hispanics, because more people are needed to understand the process,” he concluded.
