CLINICAL AND SURGICAL EXPERIENCE IN OPHTHALMOLOGY
Working as a Locum SHO in various DGH and Teaching hospitals in UK, I learnt a system of practical ophthalmology wherein the pros and cons of various interventions was judged before its application. I also gained exposure to the different protocols for diseases management.
Wockhardt Hospital being a corporate hospital, well equipped with modern instruments, the patient expectation was high. This helped me develop a great deal of tact and understanding while interacting with them.
- During my diploma in ophthalmology and fellowship in Glaucoma, I was involved in formal and informal bedside and clinic based teaching for undergraduate medical students.
- Supervised junior colleagues in minor op theatre sessions.
