    TEACHING/PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:

    Involving in teaching has been a regular practice in my medical career. My role has, at times, been a conveyor of knowledge rather than a pedantic teacher. The receiving group has been diverse like general public, school children, fellow classmates, colleagues and target groups like bus drivers, paramedical staff.

    I had been involved in ‘Medex-2002 & 2004’. ‘Medex’ was a week long awareness programme for general public arranged in my medical school. Utilizing methods like group discussion, debates, and using props like charts and videos, the response was far-fetched than expected.

    Teaching in the form of seminars, critical appraisal of articles, and academic modules at unit and department levels had been a very regular and rigorous activity till date.

    I have been exposed to all types of surgical cases posted to OR to till date, which includes difficult airway patient, critically ill scenario, decompensate state, superspeciality wings: urology, neurosurgeries, pediatric surgeries, plastic surgeries.

    Team work and organizational skills:
