Dr. John Fiallos is a native of Ecuador, where he earned his medical degree from the Guayaquil University. His passion for table tennis made him represent the medicine faculty, participating in different competitions, accomplishing different prizes for his faculty among other faculties. During his medical school, he joined the International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA) as a member of the Public Health Committee (SCOPH) for one year and then he became the chair of this committee, due to his interest in public health, health policies, and health promotion, thinking that these are the principal way to promote the health among the population.
In 2016, the last year before his graduation, he made the intern year in the Abel Gilbert Pontón hospital, where he performed different activities in different rotations (Internal medicine, Pediatrics, OB/GYN, Surgery, and Public Health). The training in this hospital inspired him to make his thesis, to consequently submit it into a journal “Espirales”, and publish a book in the academic publisher in Spain.
In 2017, he traveled to a rural area, to work in “Divina Providencia hospital”, attending patients as a general physician and shadowing general and gynecologic surgeries. During that year, he proposed a clinical trial to develop a protocol for the hospital in the management of hypertensive emergencies/urgencies, based on the high incidence of this disease in the area. The next year he published that paper in a journal.
Dr. Fiallos speaks 3 languages, Spanish, English, and Portuguese, and maintains his interest in the investigation and teaching activities.
Dr. Fiallos is a research fellow in the Society for Brain Mapping and Therapeutics, running the spine and neurovascular subcommittees along with the participation in several papers, and is an academic consultant of a continuing medical education center (IEM).
