He completed his internship and residency in pediatrics at the University of Puerto Rico and relocated to Charleston, South Carolina where he completed his pediatric cardiology fellowship at the Medical University of South Carolina. He continued his training through a second fellowship where he focused on advanced pediatric/congenital cardiovascular imaging.
