I am a medical school graduate of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon. I completed my family physician and palliative care training and successfully defended my PhD thesis on Dignity Therapy in 2014. My daily activity and passion are divided into palliative care clinical practice, research and teaching. Married to a beautiful, honest, intelligent and outstanding woman, and father of two beautiful, kind, funny and sweet sons. Family is the most important part of my life and my most difficult and responsible profession. I love art in general, classical music, opera, ballet, painting, sculpture, literature, and poetry. I rode horses for many years and love horses. I like dogs. I love Bonsai trees and grew many during my adolescence. I do not intend to be consensual, I never did. I want to keep doing things for passion, fun and usefulness.
