I have an evolving interest in medical research and audits. In early stage of my career I gained MD (Doctor of Medicine degree) in 2001. More recently in 2012 I was awarded a Masters degree with distinction in Clinical Research from Newcastle University and also won the Edgar Gentilli prize from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) for the best research in Gynaecological Oncology.
My experience in medical statistics has helped me develop analytical skills in understanding and computing descriptive, comparative, regressive and time-series (survival) analyses. The process of implementation of peri-operative complications and mortality monitoring system has allowed me to gain a substantial experience in assessment of the clinical performance and improvement in patient safety. In addition, I have also gained a valuable experience in the epidemiology through my involvement in cancer incidence trend studies and diagnostic test accuracy studies through Cochrane review.
These skills has helped me to become a better clinician and allows me to offer the evidence based individualised approach to my patients.
