Dr. Cristina Boccalandro

Dr. Boccalandro completed her specialty training in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston in 2001 and received a Master’s in Public Health (MPH) at The University of Texas School of Public Health shortly after. Although Houston has been Dr. Boccalandro’s home since 1996, she spent the first part of her life in Venezuela where she obtained a Medical Doctor degree at the Universidad Central de Venezuela in Caracas. Following, she had the opportunity to spend a year in the Venezuelan Amazon jungle, in the upper Orinoco Basin, working as a jungle physician, with the Yanomami Indians, for Dr. Boccalandro, one of her most proud and important personal experiences. She holds board certification in Endocrinology and has been practicing Endocrinology since 2001. She transitioned to private practice in the fall of 2007, after three productive years as Assistant Professor at The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.
