Surgical Innovation Fellow

Gabriel Ramos Gonzalez, MD, is a Surgical Innovation Fellow who will be the link between the clinicians and the Innovation and Digital Health Accelerator team. By doing clinical shadowing, Gabriel will identify pain points for both clinicians and patients/families in order to present the problems to the IDHA team and help develop adequate solutions. Most of the work will be focused on the innovation in the surgical field, however innovating tools to aid in the healthcare of minorities is also an interest of Gabriel.

Gabriel is a second year surgery resident at Hospital Episcopal San Lucas, in Ponce Puerto Rico. His dream is to become a Pediatric Surgeon. Although Gabriel comes from a clinical background, the idea of research and innovation have always been of interest to him. Thus, recently join the Research Lab of Dr. Heung Bae Kim to become the first surgical innovation fellow at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Gabriel received his Bachelor of Science from Boston College with a major in Biology, minor in Environmental Studies. He received his MD from Ponce School of Medicine and completed his General Surgery Residency at Hospital Episcopal San Lucas.
