Patient Care Bio

Medical Students: I spend about 30 hours of teaching per year to the medical students in the form of lectures.



Residents / Fellows: I spend about 40 hours per week in workstation teaching to residents and fellows, and about 2 hours per month of didactic lecture teaching.

I have been invited to give lectures, categorical courses, moderate, participate in hands on courses/ workshops in the annual CME meetings of these organizations.

I have been a reviewer for scientific abstracts for AIUM, and SUR.

I am a manuscript reviewer for Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine, Indian Journal of Radiology and Imaging (IJRI), and Journal of Clinical Imaging Science (JCIS).

I am a reviewer for SAM modules for the American Board of Radiology.

My objective of teaching is to impart the attendees the knowledge which is not easily understandable and attainable otherwise. My first and foremost objective is to make their foundation stronger. This can be achieved by making them understand the basics and principles of everything, and I believe that once that is successfully done, it becomes very easy to apply the information anywhere else.

My classes or lectures include a combination of didactic lectures as well as case based reviews, which again stresses on first understanding the basics and then applying it wherever applicable.

I believe that the best judges of a teacher are his or her students, and not the peers. I aim to make learning easy and at the same time fun.

I always follow what is best put across via this quote: "Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of becoming." -- Goethe
