The Past

I was the Best Outgoing Student (Johnstone Medal - 1974) from the Madras Medical College: one of India’s oldest and most prestigious medical schools. I did my residency training in General Surgery in the US (1975-1981) at the Loyola University Medical Centre, Chicago, where I was the Best Outgoing Senior Resident (1980). I then obtained certification from the American Board of Surgery. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada.

Returning to India, I helped conceive, set up and run the Sundaram Medical Foundation, Chennai, since its inception in 1994. SMF is a 200-bed, modern, full-service, not-for-profit, teaching hospital that provides postgraduate training for certification in 11 disciplines of the National Board of Examinations.

The Present

After a professional life of four decades as a surgeon, educator and medical administrator, I am now retired. Being in good physical and mental health, I stepped back to take stock of my future years. How could I provide value to a broader audience? One resoundingly clear choice came up: an explainer of complex ideas and concepts. Evidence-based medical practice has been my principal strength. I can read, analyse, interpret and apply scientific information with great expertise.

The Future

Over the years, I have used my communication skills to full effect. I write with flair, clarity and conviction. I have an excellent reputation as a public speaker.

Even though I reside in India, I am a "native English speaker". My fluency with the language is better than most.

I am confident my writing will appeal to you. Let's take it further. For a start, I could write a couple of articles just for you. Send me some topics or headings, and I will get to work on them. Once you get them, I am sure you will want more; this could be the start of a "beautiful friendship".
