I am currently a cardiac arrhythmia specialist who works for a private company that focuses on diagnostics of the electrical conduction system of the heart, analysing and interpreting electrocardiographic information obtained via ambulatory heart monitoring. This is a national post and I am required to assess arrhythmias on a variety of levels; standard 12-lead ECG with 30 minute turnaround, 24hr/48hr/72hr/7day Holters with 3 day turnaround and 6 lead ECG's for bluecrest services.
I have a clinical background in cardiac physiology, working as a Cardiac Physiologist in various hospitals across London, the most recent being Kings College Hospital where I performed all non-invasive cardiac disciplines (ESE, ETT, ECG, Tilt Table Testing, Holter analysis). I have also worked at the Bristol Heart Institute where I was part of an arrhythmia assessment team.
I am about to finish my final year of the BSc Cardiac Physiology degree at Plymouth University and will be working part-time in my current role to keep my knowledge and expertise in arrhythmia assessment to a high standard.
I have taught medical students in cardiac arrhythmias whilst in my post at Kings College Hospital, as well as teaching cardiographers at my current employer who operate the clinic for practical ECG. One of my passions is in helping prospective medical students into the profession and succeeding at interview.
I find tutoring to be very rewarding, and find it to be a passion of mine. I have learnt that by using the right approach and using positive reinforcement in my teaching, my students find their experience extremely beneficial and often refer me on to their colleagues and fellow professionals/aspirant physiologists/doctors. My approach is very open, with a particular preference for discussion rather than direct teaching, as I find my tutees respond better to this method of tutoring.
