Co-Chair and Founder
MBBS MD (Res) FRCA FFICM
I've been interested in perioperative medicine since I was an House Officer in Orthopaedics in 2004.. since then anaesthetic and ICU training, a research fellowship and a perioperative medicine fellowship have only increased my desire to improve outcomes for the surgical patient. I am an Assistant Professor in Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at Duke University in the USA and an honorary Senior Lecturer in Perioperative Medicine at University College London.

Treasurer, Events Lead & Committee Member
MBBS BMedSci FRCA
is an anaesthetic registrar working in the Severn deanery, with interests in perioperative medicine and postgraduate medical education.
I am currently a Core Surgical Trainee in the East of England deanery having completed my foundations years in the South West. I am passionate about providing the very best care to the patient in the peri-operative period, and strongly believe about improving the peri-operative knowledge and skills of surgical trainees. As the joint Events Co-ordinator for TRIPOM, I am therefore looking forward to organising educational events for the trainee keen to develop as a peri-operative clinician.
As a Cardiothoracic Surgery trainee, I fully understand the importance of perioperative medicine to improve surgical outcomes. Close collaboration between all the professionals involved in providing perioperative care is crucial to ensure that patients benefit the most from surgical treatment and avoid any complications. Although perioperative medicine used to be considered the realm of anaesthetists and critical care doctors, surgeons are increasingly aware that they have a duty to look after their patients well beyond theatre. Therefore, all trainees, including surgeon, need to gain a deeper insight into the complexities of perioperative medicine. I am committed to do my best to promote perioperative medicine amongst surgeons in training
I'm a dual anaesthetic and ICM trainee with an interest in the development of perioperative medicine. I am currently out of programme and working in a split role doing research into haemoglobin mass and perioperative/critical care anaemia alongside working as a POM fellow. My current role as the perioperative medicine fellow at UHS involves running a virtual preoperative anaemia clinic as part of a wider POM programme
I'm an ST7 Anaesthetic trainee in the London North East rotations. I've been with Tripom since the committee was formed, joining when I was the Perioperative and High Risk Surgery Fellow at Broomfield Hospital, Essex. My main role with TriPOM has been coordinating the POMTOM and Nutshell articles. So contact me to write one; there are plenty of topics to write.
Away from the day job, I'm a senior medical official for motor racing at a couple of circuits in the South East. When not working I enjoy taking my own car on track, and do a bit of running and cycling, albeit not at the same time.
