General Surgery


As a General Surgery Registrar in Chesterfield , I’m dedicated to fostering diversity and inclusivity in surgery, showcased through my role as an Equality & Diversity Ambassador for the Royal College of Surgeons England. Over 7 years, I’ve contributed to medical missions in the Philippines, Russia, Kenya, Nepal, and Uganda, supporting local teams through workshops and aid. These experiences fuel my vision for innovative ways to make surgery and knowledge accessible globally. Previous collaboration with GASOC and VRiMs emphasized the positive impact of technology in bridging knowledge gaps between the Global South and North. I’m eager to contribute to this impactful work.
