In my short-term goals, I envisage my career as a consultant radiologist in a thriving hospital and a busy imaging department and collaborating with various disciplines to provide the best quality, patient centred imaging service.

In my long-term goals, I aim to combine my clinical background, and public health education, in a centre of excellence. Radiology has been the mainstay of inpatient, outpatient and emergency diagnostics as well therapeutics. However, there is the need for growing role of radiology at prophylactic and public health levels with enormous potential.

I intend to keep working on expanding my involvement in the medical education and training as well as clinical governance and risk management.
