My name is Lucas, I was born in Resistencia, Chaco, a city located in the Northeast of Argentina.  I obtained my medical degree in Buenos Aires and completed my Internal Medicine specialization at “Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires”.  After finishing my 4-year training, I continued my education with a 3-year residency program in Nephrology at CEMIC Hospital, graduating in May 2022. During this process I became specially interested in peritoneal dialysis which led me apply for my fellowship here at UBC.

In respect of my hobbies, I am an enthusiastic guitar player and surfer.  I have always enjoyed sharing special moments with friends.  I’m excited to join UBC and experience life in the city of Vancouver.
