I have significantly contributed to the organisational and planning aspects of the many multidisciplinary environments I have worked in throughout my career. I have held different positions of responsibility which have taught me the importance of team work and delegation.

To date my experience includes:

  • Supervision, training and management of junior doctors working in a multidisciplinary team.
  • Attending departmental and multidisciplinary team meetings
  • Organising staff rotas for middle grades, registrars and on-call consultants
  • Organising and coordinating teaching sessions
  • Liaising with other professionals, senior house officers, consultants, etc.
  • Served as captain of college volleyball and table tennis team, representing the college up to university level

I have taken the opportunity to teach extensively throughout my career and believe I am an effective and capable teacher. I enjoy teaching very much and plan to continue in future. A breakdown of my teaching experience is as follows:

EXPRESS ARTHROPLASTY SKILLS EDUCATION ( EASE ) – I  was facculy on this cadaveric teaching programme held  at M.S. Ramaiah advanced learning centre Bangalore 29/05/2016.

Barnet Hospital, London – I am running a structured training programme for senior house officers and taught them general orthopaedic topics such as plastering techniques, colles fracture and Cauda Equina Syndrome, as well as basic operative techniques.

Chase Farm Hospital, London – Routinely taught senior house officers and nursing staff in basic trauma management in the fracture clinic. I supervised and assisted senior house officers and nursing staff in basic trauma surgeries including DHS, hemiarthroplasties and arthroscopies in trauma theatre.

Morriston Hospital, Swansea – Taught undergraduate students from Swansea University.

Nair Hospital and T N Medical College, Mumbai, India – I attained two years certified experience of teaching undergraduate medical and nursing students. This included practical case examinations and presentations as well as theory. I held the post of Junior Lecturer and taught undergraduate students on the basic management of trauma and medical emergencies.


I am aware of the need for a healthy work-life balance and ensure I take adequate time to pursue leisure interest.

I am a sports fanatic and love playing table tennis and swimming. Moreover, I represented my medical college at Mumbai University in both table tennis and volleyball. I also enjoy spending time with my family and teaching table tennis to my son and his classmates at Ellenborough Table Tennis Club in Enfield.

Another hobby of mine is trekking and I have successfully completed the National Himalayan Trekking Expedition organised by Youth Hostel India.
