Working with Dr. Jose Hinojosa II, program director at Christus Santa Rosa Family Medicine Residency Program, the two refined this method through designing obstetrical, musculoskeletal, and geriatric escape room teaching modules.

Last month, Drs. Lopez and Hinojosa delivered a presentation on this initiative to doctors from across the nation in Washington, D.C. at the 2018 Society of Teachers of Family Medicine National Conference. “I’m thankful to have the support of my program director and Christus Health. They grant me creative freedom and provide the resources necessary to design and implement the escape room method for teaching,” said Lopez.
