About Me[edit | edit source]

I am a Physiotherapy Lecturer with 10 years of teaching experience in the top universities of United Arab Emirates. My Under graduation (UG) and post-graduation (PG) were at PSG College of Physiotherapy, affiliated to The TN DR MGR Medical University, Chennai, India. I have had the experience of being a Clinical Tutor (2009-2010) before pursuing my PG in Women's Health (Obstetrics and Gynecology), thereafter I worked as a consultant women's health physical therapist in my hometown. In 2012 I moved to United Arab Emirates as a Lecturer teaching undergraduate physiotherapy students at Gulf Medical University, UAE (2012-2022) and currently I am working as a Lecturer at the University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates since June 2022.

My interest in teaching led me to pursue Graduate Diploma in Medical Education (PGDHPE) from Gulf Medical University, UAE and completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP) from University of Liverpool and had obtained Fellowship of Higher Education Academy (FHEA). I love teaching students with passion and instill the value of university learning to practice.

I am interested in working with multidisciplinary team members of the healthcare profession to provide patient centered care and improve patient safety and I believe technology is a great helper for academicians in creating quality content for the physiotherapy community.
