Training of other surgeons:
In my current consultant position I am regularly involved in teaching ophthalmic trainees, other junior doctors and medical staff. This involves teaching surgery, presentations at teaching sessions and clinical teaching in clinics. I have been on organised courses that develop teaching skills. I have had formal feedback on my teaching sessions and this has been very positive.

At the end of my training I undertook a year-long fellowship in Oculoplastics at the Sydney Eye Hospital. I have also been on numerous trips to an eye hospital in Burma where I have performed oculoplastic and cataract surgery. I keep up strong links with this hospital and plan to return for a trip next year.
