I work as an intensive care specialist at St George Hospital in Sydney, Australia and lead the Medical Education and Simulation portfolio.
I am a proud alumnus of the 2018 Harvard Macy Program for Educators in Health Professions. I have completed my training as an advanced simulation instructor with the Centre of Medical Simulation (CMS) in Boston, Massachusetts. I am instrumental in conducting simulation-based research with the primary focus on cognitive load and latent safety threats. I am currently pursuing a PhD in educational psychology at UNSW, Sydney under Professor John Sweller to explore the relationship between emotional state and working memory resource depletion.
I have started a critical care education website www.critcareedu.com.au as part of the FOAM campaign. As an elected Australia and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS) Education Committee vice chair, I have started the Critical Care Pearl series to update ICU medical and nursing staff in New South Wales (NSW )regarding the changing landscape of intensive care.
I am a convener for various educational workshops such as ‘How to Have Hard Conversations,’ ‘Resternotomy for Cardiothoracic patients,’ & ‘Advanced Hemodynamic Monitoring.’ Currently, I am developing a bronchoscopy curriculum for ICU trainees.
In this podcast series, I aim to meet health professional educators from around the globe to discuss various educational approaches and challenges that we face as educators in medical education. An expert educator will share his or her insights and experience to help junior educators progress in their careers. This is a shared learning experience, and we welcome you to join this community to share your experience with other educators.
