Dr. Condurache Bio
I obtained my Medical Doctor degree in 1995 from the University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Grigore T. Popa" in Iasi, Romania, followed by a 5-year pediatric residency with specialization in pediatric cardiology and critical care. Following my residency, I joined the Faculty at University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Grigore T. Popa" in Iasi, Romania as an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics until October of 2003, when I was invited to University of Louisville as a research scholar/lecturer.
Between July of 2005 and June of 2007, I did a second pediatric residency at the University of Louisville and following that, in August of 2007, I joined the Pediatric Faculty at the University of Louisville as an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics. I am currently a Pediatric Hospitalist, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, and Director of International Resident Education within the Division of International Pediatrics at the same University.
In the past seven years, we have traveled to many countries delivering CMEs and establishing collaborative agreements for faculty and resident exchange; these countries include: Romania, Moldova, Russia, Ecuador, Ghana, Brazil, and Vietnam. I created PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) centers in Moldova, Ghana, and Ecuador, by teaching the provider and instructor course, and providing the necessary equipment. Ghana and Ecuador proved to be very suitable sites for residency exchanges, with clear benefits for the under-served communities in these countries, and for enriching our residents’ education through exposure to different cultural settings, different diseases, and many fewer resources.
