Natalia Mesa Freydell

About me

I am Natalia Mesa, a doctor, specialized in gynecology and obstetrics in Bogotá, Colombia, where I am from. I worked in my specialty for more than 20 years, both in Colombia and in Spain. I have always enjoyed visiting museums, discovering different ways of living life and reading. Looking for a path that would unite some of my main interests, art, medicine and education, in 2018 I obtained a master's degree in Medical Humanities, awarded by King's College, London, United Kingdom. I am currently a third-year doctoral student at the Faculty of Health Sciences at the Rey Juan Carlos University. Continuing along the same path, my thesis aims to propose the use of disease narratives as an example of how the experiences of people diagnosed with breast cancer can be incorporated into medical education. It focuses on health interactions; listen and transmit the suggestions of women to develop a communication skills module for health sciences students.
