Skills

Skills

Political skills

I started during the specialization creating a group of junior doctors and persuading the University Rector to decrease the taxes for Junior doctors in Sapienza University of Rome (almost 700.000 euro for all the junior doctors under specialty). Then I was called to be national counsellor for the most representative and ancient Italian Junior Doctors association AMSCE. After I was asked to be Italian Junior Doctors delegate in PWG (Permanent Working Group of European Junior Doctors), the consultive organ of european institutions for Junior Doctors and i gave several suggestions in order to change its structure and policies after 35 years. Some of them have been applied. Aftewards I have been elected as Communications Officer of EJD (European Junior Doctors Permanent Working Group) by the EJD plenary, entering in the executive of the organ. I have been elected as delegate in UEMS Endocrinology Section and chosen as member of E-learning working group. I have been also choosen as UEMS delegate for e-health. I wrote and promoted a memorandum of understanding between EJD and ISfTeH in order to spread the knowledge of e-health between junior doctors.

Information technology
