Me in a sentence would probably read something like this …When you can’t find the sunshine, be the sunshine. A really helpful ethos, especially in Melbourne…where we experience all seasons in one day, EVERY SINGLE DAY. Coming from India, the always-carry-an-umbrella-when-you-leave-the-house-even-in-the-middle-of-summer has taken some getting used to.
And now that my life’s philosophy and climate quandaries and have been addressed…here’s a little bit more about me.
Before coming to Australia, I completed a Bachelor of Science (Medical), Masters of Education and a Dual Certification (Cert- III & IV) in Business Administration.
In 2009, my husband and I settled in Sydney where I worked as Education Officer for the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) in their Assessment Unit.
In 2014, we moved to Melbourne and that’s when I joined the Council. In my role as Manager – Clinical Assessments, I coordinate projects and activities around the clinical assessments and internal review, as well as manage ongoing relationships with our numerous clinical assessment stakeholders.
When the Council recently embarked on the world-first Simulation Trial to reduce waiting times during clinical exams, my workload increased exponentially…but so too did the passion for my job. As the late Steve Jobs said, “the only way to do great work is to love what you do”. So if that’s the litmus, I would like to think I am doing some pretty great work : )
