Future Aspirations


My primary aim is to pursue surgical oncology as a career in an institution, preferably with a specialised department for it. I would like to devote part of my time to academics and research interests. Hopefully, this would entail a) clinical trials and b) the integration of basic research with clinical work having implications on patient management. To this end I shall be able to collaborate and plan studies with my colleagues and friends in the UK who have expressed their enthusiasm for joint projects. I would be keen to acquire, learn and teach newer surgical techniques and concepts in improving patient management from an oncologic and basic surgical point of view.

Another long-term project that I feel strongly about is the spread of cancer awareness among our population and non-specialist doctors. This should result in an earlier detection of cancer and hence improve cure rates. I think this may be possible with cancer screening/detection camps and regularly organised lectures for clinicians by cancer specialist.
