At the same time organized, taught and served as expert moderator with an International Continuing Medical Education (CME) activity in Neurosciences for patient care and education designed for better diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions. To expose fellows, doctors-in-training, medical students, nurses and clinical support staff to the latest technologies in neurosciences and prepare them for their respective board certification.
Coordinated with, different activities of the multiple governmental agencies: In the priority areas of science and technology, coordinating interactions with federal and state agencies and representatives, interacting with medical industry and Congress. Outreach for funding for research and clinical education in multiple medical disciplines in academics and clinical sciences for continuing medical education programs for fellow physicians and doctors under training in USA and overseas.

Fulbright Scholar Surgical Neurology: Clinical work but mostly teaching in neurosciences. This flagship international education activity was planned and implemented through The Council of international exchange of scholars, US Department of State and UNESCO. This was in relationship with joint sponsorship of USA, China, and Gulf Central countries accredited academic institutions.
Teaching comprised didactic lectures and training medical students, fellows, and doctors-in-training in neurosciences at multiple academic institutions in Gulf central countries and China as a visiting Fulbright Faculty.

• 2000- 2003
Assistant professor Neurosurgery University of Nebraska College of Medicine and Medical Center: Primarily neurophysiologic intra-operative monitoring and some first assistance in neurosurgical procedures like deep brain stimulation (DBS).Education and training of Neurology / Neurosurgery fellows and residents:. Instructions included weekly conferences, didactic small class room lectures, journal club, preparing them for Board Certification in Neurology and Neurosurgery. Interventional Surgical Neurophysiology, functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Assisting and monitoring of neurosurgical, orthopedic and vascular procedures, correction and early detection of iatrogenic injury, functional mapping of cranial nerves, cortical and sub cortical areas of brain mapping of sub thalamic nuclei for tremor disorders with placement of microelectrode recordings and alternative techniques with fewer complications.
Fellowship Audubon Science & Technology Columbia University, New York: Fellowship training in interventional surgical neurophysiology: Training was spread over different academic institutions to cover various procedures and modalities. Hands on training with didactic lectures and open forum discussions: neurophysiologic intra-operative monitoring, SSEP’s, MEP’s, FEP’s, Evoked and free-run EMG’s, Analog and Digital EEG’s with FFT, CSA, DSA, Doppler studies.
American Scientific Laboratories New Jersey: Neurosciences biomedical and research education: Combination of teaching and research excellence in the interventional arena readily tackled the most difficult procedures.
Pakistan International Airlines Diagnostic Institute, Karachi, Pakistan (PIAC): Training in aviation medicine “Airline Doctor” learning cardiovascular assessment of patients on ground and during flight stress, of cockpit and cabin crew, with rotation at St. Joseph’s Hospital Paterson, NJ nuclear cardiology training in Technetium and Thallium cardiac stress scanning.
General Hospital / Holy Family Hospital affiliated with Rawalpindi Medical College, Pakistan: Residency training in emergency and trauma medicine with rotation in general medicine.

First assisted several neurosurgical procedures and on some performed neurophysiologic intra-operative monitoring:
Anterior cervical discectomy, corpectomy, vertabrectomy, lumbo-sacral decompression for adequacy of nerve root decompression, scoliosis correction, instrumentation for spinal instability including pedicle and lateral mass screws, stabilization of odontoid/dens fracture, spinal cord neoplasm, Pterygian band release, femoral lengthening, pelvic hip arthroplasty, peripheral nerve surgery, thermal capsulorrhaphy, acetabular fractures, spinal fusions with instrumentation and complicated hip revision surgery. Craniotomies also awake craniotomies for the tumor resection, functional mapping of brain, spinal cord neoplasm, diskectomies, laminectomies, aneurysms and instrumentation. In addition, seizure ablation surgeries also helped with localization of sub thalamic nuclei for tremor disorders. Further-more craniofacial – maxilla-facial , brachial plexus, spina-bifida, epilepsy and vascular Surgeries (AVM and Aneurysms).
Employed integrated functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for pre-operative mapping of cortical areas associated with tactile, motor, language, and visual functions. Also made use of real time neurosurgical navigation for cranial and spine application with Stealth Navigation System & floronav intra-operatively.
Neurophysiologic intra-operative monitoring used different modalities like field action potentials FEP's for deep brain stimulation DBS , SSEP's, MEP's, , Evoked and free-run EMG's, Analog and Digital EEG's with FFT, CSA, DSA, Doppler studies and WADA testing with brain and cranial nerves mapping , fMRI and also image guidance for proper trajectory.
Time with multiple academic and as clinical faculty in the United States and overseas I have been integrally involved in the medical education, supervision, evaluation, and research mentorship of medical students, interns, residents and fellows under training.
Several years of participating in the education of fellow trainee junior to me and peers while attending residency, fellowship, as a faculty and respectively in private setup beside academics.
Over the years the bulk of my clinical practice and teaching efforts have been concentrated in the field of neurosciences where I played a prominent role nationally and internationally. In addition senior fellows undergoing subspecialty training in neurosciences have been directly under my tutelage. The daily teaching effort over the past several years had been supplemented by my role in educating physicians in practice through various sources. I also have been Ad Hoc reviewer of various neurosciences chapters.
