Meet Dr Rishi Dhir
MBChB BSc FRCS PGCERT
I’m Dr Rishi (MBChB BSc (hons) FRCS (orth) PGCERT), your course tutor. I currently work as a practising orthopaedic consultant and have a long standing background in education with training the trainers, a PGCERT and current PGDIP in medical education at Cambridge University but above all a wealth of practical experience with a fabulous track record of working with international students at all levels both virtually and face to face. In particular I have set up an international community of learning utilising principles and skills learned from a background on media, public speaking and coaching as well as my working experience. I have a unique ability to decode this difficult exam and simplify it into the most basic terms to help you sail through the exam.
Personally it has been the greatest gift to work with students around the world and mentor them , not only rewarding me by helping others who have become great colleagues and lifelong friends but the lessons it has taught me about different styles of learning, pathology patterns and unique techniques have made me a far better educator. I always believe in being approachable and going that step further for all my students.
