c) Major archievements

-I published my first international articles when I was a medical student
-I was awarded with Prestigious Louis Pasteur and Gustavo Baz awards by the National University of Mexico (UNAM).
-I was presented with the prestigious Antonio Caso Medal in 2003 for the National University of Mexico for his excellent performance during the Master degree in Clinical Epidemiology
- I have completed successfully two residencies, two epilepsy fellowships in epilepsy and a PHD in clinical epidemiology
-I have been awarded with more than 11 national and international research prizes and honors
-I was able to describe for the first time the concept of “longitudinal myelitis” in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus
-I was awarded with the Bruce Schoenberg International Award in Neuroepidemiology in 2007 by the American Academy of Neurology. The award recognized my contributions in migraine and myasthenia gravis when I was working in Mexico
-I was awarded with the Mudjatik Thyssen Mining Professorship in Neuroscience (2009-14) by the Royal University Hospital Foundation in Saskatoon
-I have published classical articles in the literature of epidemiology epilepsy, epilepsy surgery outcomes, and in general exploring outcomes in patients with epilepsy
-I was selected as an international rising star in the field of epilepsy by the journal epilepsy and behavior in 2011
-I have been a very active and well evaluated teacher for medical students and residents of neurology at the U of S
-I am the current director of the main neurology course for medical students (Neurology System’s teaching) at the U of S
-I became the first Saskatchewan president of the Canadian Society of Clinical Neurophysiology in 2015
-My publications have been cited 1829 times according the database of the Web of knowledge-Thompson Reuters, 2041 in Scopus and 3205 times according the data base of google scholar
-Our center published the first experience in Canadian centres exploring the yield of portable EEG for the diagnosis of epilepsy
-Regarding my clinical work my most important achievement is the creation of an epilepsy program for complex patients with epilepsy in the province of Saskatchewan. The program offers epilepsy surgery, vagal nerve stimulation, deep brain stimulation and other specialized treatments. The program has also a single seizure clinic. (Attachment 1)
-I have been the main speaker in several national and international meetings
-I have brought close to 2 million dollars in grants and donations to the U of S
-I have participated in several national and international committees and commissions
-I am a very well recognized international expert in epilepsy
-In collaboration with Dr. Moien-Afshari, Dr. Lizbeth Hernandez, Dr. Adam Wu, Dr. Mark Hiken, we developed the first epilepsy brain bank in Canada.

Creation of a comprehensive provincial epilepsy program to assess patients with drug resistant epilepsy. The following services have been stablished with the program:


a) Comprehensive assessment of potential candidates for epilepsy surgery
b) Comprehensive assessment for patients with drug resistant epilepsy
c) A program of portable EEGs to investigate patients with the potential diagnosis of epilepsy
d) Two permanent video-EEG telemetries to investigate candidates for epilepsy surgery
e) Wada test for candidates for epilepsy surgery
f) Implantation of depth electrodes for patients with epilepsy surgery
g) A program to implant vagal nerve stimulates for patients with intractable epilepsy
h) A new program to implant deep brain stimulators for patients with intractable epilepsy
i) Addition of functional MRI and PET scan in the assessment of candidates for epilepsy surgery
j) Consolidation as the only EEG lab in the province with full qualification of EEG/EMG technologists
k) Establishment of a single seizure clinic. The clinic assess patients from the Saskatoon Health region who experience the first seizure in life
