MBBS, FRACGP, MPH
I was born in Abu Dhabi (UAE) and was in Abu Dhabi till I completed my high school. Later I had done my medical training at Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences in Mangalore, India and graduated in 2005. I later arrived in Australia in 2006 to pursue my Masters in Public health, which I successfully completed, from Deakin University in Melbourne by 2009. I decided to make Australia my home and started working in Western Health in Melbourne in 2009 and later moved to work in Mount Isa Hospital in 2010 for a couple of years.
I had the opportunity to work at the Cairns Base hospital as a Medical Registrar and thus moved to Cairns in 2012 .I was involved in managing complex acute and chronic medical conditions in the Emergency and the inpatient wards. I was involved with the Diabetes Center and Endocrine clinics for a period of 1 year which is my main area of interest .I have work experience in Geriatric medicine and Palliative care medicine .I was also involved in education and training for junior doctors which included medical students, interns and residents .I joined the GP training program in 2017 and have immense interest in the ATSI population and chronic diseases due to my experience working in Mount Isa and Cairns hospital and also completing part of my GP training in a Aboriginal Medical Service for 1 year .
I have been living in Cairns with my wife for the last 7 years and consider Cairns a tropical paradise and home!
