TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My first Teaching Experience was as Anatomy Lecturer (1982-1987) at Nishtar Medical College Multan.

I was almost always appointed in a Teaching Institution and has taught undergraduates as Registrar, Senior Registrar, Assistant Professor and since last six years as Associate Professor in the Neurosurgery Department of Women Medical College Abbottabad and recently Islam Medical College Sialkot. When employed at MoH KSA, my hospital was aatached to Abha College of Medicine/King Khalid University Asir Province.Hence Teaching I have been throughout my career and have develop a passion for it .

In the Department of Anatomy at Nishtar Medical College, Multan from 1983-1987 (Four Years), I taught Ist and 2nd year students. My special interest was Neuro-Anatomy and Neuro-Histology.

As most of my experience is in teaching hospitals, I have continuously taught clinical students in General surgery and Neurosurgery. During my registrar ship in general surgery, my duties included teaching students; how to examine patients, and giving regular tutorials on various subjects in surgery.

Clinical Audit

is part of my Teaching Job throughout my career and from time to time we review management of our patients and in this process find for mistakes and in dsoing so develop a process to rectify them.

This began as checking randomly 50 patients files to see whether pre-op CBC was missed as an essential investigation.Seven percent miss was thought inadequate in the review meeting by Peers and strict monitoring was introduced .Later on the same was done for Clotting profiles,wrong side surgery, legally Informed consent and post-op wound Complications .Our experience encouraged other clinicians in the department to carry out more audits.
