GUSTAVO BACELAR (PhD) helps healthcare organizations achieve major performance improvements from existing resources.
Introduced to Theory of Constraints (TOC) in 2005, he has been using this management methodology for business and life ever since. In Brazil, he implemented TOC in his ophthalmology practice (in a hospital and in his private practice) and was able to attend 64% more patients (without overtime, at no extra cost) providing better care.
In Portugal, Gustavo has been working with TOC since 2012 in several areas of health (e.g. pharmacy, obstetrics) and taught a course on TOC in Healthcare (theme of his PhD) at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto (FMUP).
He has 2 MD degrees – from Brazil (EBMSP) and Portugal (FMUP) –, holds an MBA (FGV), a Master of Medical Informatics degree from FMUP and is a PhD (FMUP). He has attended courses at MIT, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania. In addition, he is a member of TOCICO (Theory of Constraints International Certification Organization).
