Who are the fellows?

Cosmas Anazodo

I am ST6 in Acute Internal Medicine with North West HEE. It is not by accident that I found myself training inAcute Medicine as I have tested many medical specialties both oversea and in the UK. I started training in haematology oversea until I came to UK and applied for Core Medical Training in the North West.

I rotated through most of the medical specialties and my stay at the Medical Assessment unit changed my future decision in choosing Acute Medicine. In acute medicine, you are able to use all the skills you have acquired since your graduation at the front door as each day present differently from the other. 

Before taking up position as ST3 in Acute Medicine, I already had MSc in Oncology and PGD in Diabetes with UK universities and these have been useful in my career so far. I am currently studying PGCert. In Medical Education with the University of Manchester to help sharpen my teaching skill which is needed in the Acute Medicine as we come face to face with the medical students and junior colleagues.

Acute Medicine presents you with choices to develop a special interest or subspecialty during your five year training and in my own situation, I chose Stroke Medicine as both specialties offer acute challenges at the front door and I can be flexible with the role. As a takeAIM fellow, I will enjoy the great time of talking with both medical students and  junior doctors about the fascinating career in acute medicine, and the day to day fulfilling experience we encounter.

I am currently an ST4 in Acute internal medicine in Mersey Deanery. I have always enjoyed working with the acutely sick adult medical patient at the front door. I was very much medically orientated, ever since medical school and this has never changed.

I always knew I wanted to do internal medicine. My specialist skills along with AIM is ultrasounding with FAMUS, which I am getting of a lot of opportunity to do with ultrasound machines now being readily available in most acute medical units and A+E. Outside of hospital I like to get to the gym regularly.

I seem to have a thing for spinning at the moment. When the weather is warmer I like to get out for a run along the docks at Liverpool. I also like to sign up for runs and tough mudders.

I joined takeAIM after seeing the enjoyment Ratna, another takeAIM fellow, got out of promoting the world of acute medicine, and I will hopefully continue this on during my term.

Naina Mohan

I’m an ST3 training in South London. Acute Medicine was my first job as an FY1 and I immediately loved it.
During this year as a takeAIM fellow, I hope to spread the love. 

I was particularly attracted towards the huge variety and high turnover of patients, working on a busy (and very sociable) unit and the opportunity to perform procedures from chest drains to central lines. And although it’s early days as yet, I’ve started developing my specialist skills in maternal medicine and management – although every time I look at the list of interests, I get tempted by another.

It’s definitely a specialty in which you are encouraged to work hard and play hard. When I’m not at work, I can usually be found enjoying London or scuba diving in an exotic location – but I’ll always make time to chat to people who have questions or are interested in the specialty!

I am currently an ST6 in Acute Internal Medicine in Mersey and have loved my training so far.  As a Core Medical Trainee, I didn’t know what medical path to take – I enjoy them all!  I therefore took time out and secured a LAS SpR position in Acute Medicine for a year whilst organising a job in Australia.  It was during this year I decided on Acute Medicine as a career.  I still went to Australia but came back to start ST3 two years later.  When I’m not in work, I enjoy escaping the country or trying to keep fit by going the gym, jogging or finding where I hit my golf ball at the course.

I already knew what I wanted to do as a specialist skill and soon started a part-time Diploma in Medical Toxicology and completed this after two years.  The opportunity arose during my training to undertake Focused Acute Medical UltraSound (FAMUS) and Focused Intensive Care Echocardiography (FICE) and have now completed accreditation in these.  I am now a keen advocate of Point Of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) at the bedside.  Acute Medicine training is so flexible and can be somewhat tailored to your interests. 

I’ve no regrets with my choice and enjoy the huge variation in the job.  There is great satisfaction in providing treatment to patients during their acute illness and also to facilitate ambulatory care for the patients benefit.  I would definitely recommend training in Acute Internal Medicine and also the job as a career.
