Every opportunity was taken to teach medical students at various levels, on topics ranging from history & examination to patient management to practical procedures. Teaching is one of the most enjoyable aspects of being a junior doctor and my techniques have been well received by all my medical students.


Career Aspirations                                                                                   


To be an interventional radiologist in a teaching hospital and to pioneer new techniques in this fascinating new field.


Personal Interests                                                                                    



Having attended the Berklee School of Music (Boston, USA), I am proficient in jazz and other forms of contemporary music on the bass (string and electric) and guitar. I used these skills at medical school participating in various musical groups and ensembles, including the successful Medical School Jazz Band and the annual Medical School musicals. I was also a member of the Medical School Orchestra as a violinist.



As a member of the medical school hockey team and various National League club teams I have been a winner in various competitions, including the Birmingham University competition in 1997. My passion for tennis is longstanding and in 1996 I won the Birmingham University mixed tennis doubles competition.


Other interests include cooking, interior & graphic design, architecture and new extreme sports such as wakeboarding and kitesurfing.
