Details of Post fellowship Experience
Since my two fellowships, I have been involved in medical education, teaching and examining. I have worked at major teaching institutes of Pakistan and United Kingdom. I have worked in several Teaching Hospitals and for several years I have trained myself extensively in teaching medical students and postgraduate doctors. I enjoy teaching and at present, I work as dean and professor of surgery at a teaching institute. I have been an examiner of Surgery at Baqai Medical University. Recently, I have had the honour of being appointed a Member to the Panel of MCQ Question Writers for MRCS. I have also been appointed an examiner of MRCS at Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh & Glasgow.
I have been actively involved in various postgraduate courses in Surgery in Pakistan and United Kingdom for FRCS, MRCS and FCPS.
I have a special interest in research and have been actively involved in several clinical studies.
I have been working first as Associate Professor and then as professor of surgery and Dean at Muhammad Medical College Mirpurkhas which is recognised by Pakistan Medical & Dental Council and is now affiliated with second oldest and one of the largest Universities of Pakistan, the university of Sindh.
From, I worked as Associate Professor of Surgery at Baqai Medical University. I was surgical coordinator at the university. This involved responsibility for undergraduate as well as post graduate training.
I have done a three year Post Fellowship Surgical Registrar rotation in Newcastle upon Tyne. This job provided me an excellent combination of experience in operative surgery, teaching and research.
Freeman Hospital was one of the largest and most modern Teaching Hospitals in the North of England. It accepted Medical Students from University of Newcastle upon Tyne. I was involved in teaching these students as well as post graduate students at the Freeman Hospital. It was a tertiary referral centre for different branches of surgery including gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, vascular, urological, cardiothoracic and transplant surgery. I spent five sessions in Theatre every week. There were two General Surgical and one vascular outpatient clinics, one grand vascular round and one teaching session per week. On average we had three to four laparoscopic cholecystectomy operations every week.
Shotley Bridge General Hospital was a District General Hospital where I worked with a General Surgeon with a special interest in gastrointestinal surgery. I had sessions of ERCP, colonoscopy and upper GI endoscopy every week. There was good experience of gastrointestinal and open hepatobiliary surgery, as there was no facility for laparoscopic surgery in this hospital.
North Tyneside General Hospital was one of the busiest hospitals in the region. It was an Associated Teaching Hospital and medical students from Newcastle University came for clinical attachment in each ward. There were plenty of opportunities for emergency as well as elective surgery in this job. I gained a lot of confidence in operating during this job. I also gained good experience in laparoscopic surgery during this job.
My job at Horton General Hospital, Banbury, Oxford was at Senior SHO level, with the responsibilities of a Registrar. Actually this job was often done by a Post Fellowship Career Registrar on the Oxford rotation. I had my operating list on Wednesday and I also performed many operations on the Consultant's list under supervision. The bulk of the work was gastrointestinal surgery but there was agood collection of patients from other branches of surgery as well. During this period, I performed small bowel resections and GI endoscopies, including colonoscopies, gastroscopies and flexible sigmoidoscopies. Outpatient commitments were twice a week and I taught medical students from Oxford Medical School three times a week.
Details of Pre fellowship Experience
My job at the Isle of Wight was under a Vascular Surgeon and a General Surgeon with an interest in gastroenterology. During my preparation for the final fellowship examination I felt deficient in vascular surgery experience. I therefore worked in the Royal Isle of Wight Hospital under Mr J M Symes (Consultant Vascular Surgeon) and Mr T Walsh (General Surgery with a special interest in gastroenterology) for six months. During this job I attended a Fellowship Course in Bristol University and took examinations towards the end of the job. I managed to get a Fellowship from Edinburgh as well as Glasgow.
During my job at Wythenshawe Hospital I worked as a Locum Registrar for two months. This job provided me with very valuable operating and teaching experience. Wythenshawe Hospital is one of the Associated Teaching Hospitals.
In Southampton I worked in a busy Urological Unit at a Teaching Hospital. When on call, I worked as a Registrar to Professor Irving Taylor. Routine urological work included teaching the medical students, performing urodynamic studies, doing cystoscopies and day surgeries, and assisting the two Consultants in urological lists and doing urological outpatients. I was responsible for keeping the morbidity and mortality record of the Unit, which I presented in monthly meetings.
I worked at Lymington Hospital as a Senior House Officer in General Surgery. The team consisted of one Consultant
General Surgeon, one SHO (myself) and one House Officer. Besides assisting the Consultant I had my own operating list every week. There were two general surgical and one urological outpatient per week. The duties also involved teaching medical students from Southampton General Hospital and doing daily ward rounds. During this job I gained considerable experience in
endoscopies including gastroscopy, sigmoidoscopy and cystoscopy.
I worked as SHO in department of Orthopaedics at St Peter’s hospital Chertsey and Rowley Bristow Hospital for six months.
I have also worked in a busy General Surgical Department at the Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil. This post involved the care of inpatients andemergency admissions as well as four outpatient clinics and four operation sessions per week. During this period I gained good experience in surgical management. I also presented cases in clinical meetings. House Jobs in Medicine & Surgery and 6 month.
