Bernardo Mendonça Flôr Rodrigues
Medical Student and Junior Teaching Assistant at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Coimbra, Portugal

Experience in Leadership, Biomedical Research, Medical Teaching, Volunteering (focus on Water scarcity and Health inequalities), Healthcare Management and Health Diplomacy. As Professor Abel Salazar once said: “The doctor who only knows Medicine, neither Medicine knows”. Based on that, I focus on learning about multiple areas of knowledge, to understand more than only a disease, but the person (unique because of their specific background, life history, perspectives and experiences). I am passionate about understanding Humans from different perspectives; therefore, I also focus my scientific activities on Developmental Biology, Medical Education, Social Medicine and Global Health.
