International speaker at ISA/IMSU 2017

Mr Arpit Jariwala, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Honorary Clinical Senior Teacher at the Department of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery (TORT Centre), has been invited as an International Speaker at Riga Stradins University International Students’ Association and European Medical Students’ Association in Latvia on 17-19th May, 2017.

Mr Jariwala has been invited to lecture to medical students about his expertise and experience on Orthopaedics, particularly of shoulder pathologies and shoulder trauma. His current research interests include Trauma, Upper limb and hands and Patient education and information.

Mr Jariwala has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals and presented at several notable conferences around the world. He also received a BOA Travelling Fellowship Award in 2014, allowing the opportunity for him to visit The Mayo Clinic, McMaster University and St Joseph’s Healthcare Centre, in North America. Mr Jariwala, himself an Alumni of the Master of Orthopaedic Surgery (MCh Orth) at the University of Dundee, is the Deputy Director for the course and also runs shoulder surgical workshops for students annually and is a research project supervisor on the same course.

Rajenthini Varadarajah, Medical Science Director, International Students’ Association, stated:

A lecture with your expertise and experience in Orthopaedics will be an excellent motivation for our medical students who will be eager to hear and learn from your work. We always value high quality lectures from lecturers around Europe with specialist expertise.”

Professor Rami Abboud, Head of Department and Director of MCh (Orth) stated:

Mr Jariwala, a graduate with distinction of the MCh Orth programme in 2003, is a great colleague and deputy who will go the extra mile to support our students having first-hand experience of the course itself. In being a graduate of the MCh, a current consultant orthopaedic surgeon at our hospital and an honorary senior clinical academic member of staff, Arpit is a great ambassador of our academic department and the MCh degree that helped him shape his career. Mr Jariwala has most recently been nominated by the students for the DUSA 2017 Student Led Teaching Award for the Most Inspirational Teaching category amongst 82 other staff from across the University. Whilst he has not made it for the final round, being nominated in my opinion is as good as winning the award. I am sure that the students in Latvia will find his lectures to be stimulating and inspiring.”
