    Summary of Surgical & Urological Training:

    General Surgical Training

It was followed by post fellowship training in General Surgery 1990 – 1992. The senior SHO/Registrar position at Dewsbury DistrictHospital and Pinderfields Hospital Wakefield provided me exposure to a wide variety of general surgical and urological cases in setting of busy District General Hospitals.

    ·       Colorectal surgery

    ·       Vascular surgery

    8. Audit

    Audit is an essential tool both in the context of clinical governance and reflective practice. Throughout my career, I remained involved in local audit collecting and analyzing data as well as leading and supervising audit projects. Working as a consultant I have undertaken and supervised a large number of audit projects. Some audit projects that I have undertaken in last 05 years are:

    ·        Ureteroscopy - complications.

    ·        Use of saline for TURP.

    ·        TURP - Clinical audit of 750 cases.

    ·        HOLEP – first 200 cases

    ·        DVT prophylaxis in endourological procedures.

    ·        TRUS Biopsy – complication rates.

    ·        PCNL outcomes. Complication and clearance rates evaluated over a period of 02 years. Changes implemented to be re-audited in a year’s     

            time.  Data entered into BAUS national audit.

    ·        Ureteroscopy data being entered into CROES Global observational study

    9. Management / Leadership Skills

    I enjoy organisational responsibilities and consider myself to be capable enough to be effective and motivate others. I have developed skills in appropriate management of time, staff and resources. At the same time, over the years, I have acquired skills in delegating responsibility and managing both clinical and non-clinical support staff.

    10. Teaching Experience

    Teaching remains my passion. Throughout my career, I have been involved with teaching medical students, trainees, paramedics and members of multidisciplinary team both formal and informally. I use a range of teaching methods appropriate to the subject and audience and regularly seek feedback to improve my teaching skills.

    Working for Fauji Foundation and Shifa Hospitals inPakistanI was involved in devising the curriculum for undergraduates and post graduate urology trainees.  Delivering lectures, teaching in clinics and theatres was an important part of my role. While at Oxford, I regularly taught medical students and urology trainees in outpatients and theatres. In my present position at Bristol, teaching and supervising urology trainees and endourology fellows is an integral part of my schedule.

    My teaching activities have included:

    ·        Bedside teaching

    ·        Lectures in medical schools

    ·        Tutorials

    ·        Informal teaching in clinics, wards and theatres

    ·        Invited lectures

    ·        Live demonstrations of operative procedures

    ·        Short courses for urology nurses / trainees


    11. Team Working

    I firmly believe that team work is an essential component of successful practice in Medicine today. I have always worked well within a team environment both during my training and while in more senior positions. Positive feedback from colleagues and others leads me to believe that I have excellent communication and interpersonal skills. These have helped me to relate to both colleagues and patients in difficult and stressful situations.  While in senior positions I have always maintained cordial relationships with my colleagues and other medical / paramedical staff. I have always endeavoured to make them feel part of the team and encouraged them to seek help when needed without hesitation.
