Professional Experience
Avantor - Fellow in Pediatric Critical Care
Ohio, IL, 06/2011 - Current
  • Extensive experience in the management of the entire spectrum of pediatric critical care medicine in a multidisciplinary 31 bed PICU, 36 bed intermediate care unit and 21 bed cardiovascular ICU, with 88 beds, and a total of approximately 6500 admissions annually.
  • Texas Children’s is a level 1 trauma center, admitting 40-50 children annually to ICU for management of isolated head trauma as well as multi-trauma. Other patient groups include solid organ (heart, lung, liver, kidney) and haematological transplantation; pediatric respiratory and cardiac ECMO and VAD.
  • I am competent in performing and supervising procedures such as endotracheal intubations, arterial, central venous cannulations, chest tube placement, and in delivering monitored anesthesia care for ICU procedures.
  • I have substantial, and ever-increasing experience in the management of children requiring extra-corporeal support including renal replacement therapy, temporary ECMO and VAD, and VAD as a bridge to transplant.
  • Texas Children’s is almost unique in our dedicated intermediate care unit: the Progressive Care Unit (PCU). A significant proportion of patients in the PCU are technology dependent, and being transitioned from chronic ventilation with the goal of discharge home. I therefore work closely with care management teams in orchestrating the steps necessary for the long term care of children with complex chronic medical needs
  • Texas Children’s has a rapid response team which operates from the ICU. As senior fellow I routinely attend (and have primary responsibility for) all code events and RRT calls, and attend level 3 trauma calls.
  • My critical care training includes 2-3 months dedicated to Pediatric Transport with our dedicated Kangaroo Crew. The Crew transports more than 1200 critically ill children annually by road and air from hospitals around the state of Texas, and beyond.
  • My second and third years of Fellowship will continue to provide me with increasing responsibility for the supervision of our Pediatric interns and residents in the PICU and PCU, as well as regular commitment for their formal didactic teaching. I have consistently had excellent feedback from residents in our program.
Surrey And Sussex Hospitals And Guy's And St Thomas' Hospital - Specialist Registrar in Pediatric Critical Care, Neonatology and Pediatrics
City, , 08/2005 - 08/2010
  • MONTHS: 2005-2011 Academic and general pediatrics (3 years), neonatology (6 months) and pediatric intensive care (24 months). My training as a registrar (Fellow) in pediatrics provided me with broad experience and significant responsibility in general and subspecialty pediatrics and neonatology at busy regional teaching hospitals. This was followed by 18 months’ training in intensive care at Evelina Children’s Hospital provided me with an excellent exposure to critical care in a mixed (general and cardiac) 20 bed PICU, with a dedicated transport service based out of the ICU. I was the sole physician on 35 critical care transports during my time at Evelina. I was also fortunate to be involved in a number of clinical research projects during my time at Evelina.

Jawaharlal Institute Of Post Graduate Medical Education And Research(JIPMER) - Resident in Paediatrics
City, STATE, 03/2000 - 03/2003
  • My early pediatric training in India included 17 months of General Pediatrics, 6 months’ neonatology, 7 months’ Intensive Care and 6 months of mixed sub-specialties (psychiatry, dermatology and cardiology). This period provided me with unrivalled exposure to a vast variety of pathologies, many of which are not seen in the industrialised world, and helped in building a very solid foundation in Pediatrics.
  • Working in a resource poor area provided me with an excellent understanding of basic concepts in Pediatrics such as childhood immunization, nutrition and treatment of diarrhea with oral rehydration, treatment of pneumonia with basic oral antibiotics, and how to manage a host of conditions without sophisticated investigations, monitoring and therapies.
