Ravi is an ANZCA and CICM trainee currently undergoing his advanced training at Waikato Hospital, New Zealand. Perioperative medicine intrigues him for the cross-pollination of ideas between specialties, and collegiality to improve patient outcomes. He has interests in medical student and registrar education and enjoys a good ECG. Out of work interests include reading, travelling and (attempting to) train his canine pal 'Doggins.'
Rajni is currently completing her dual training in geriatrics plus acute and general medicine in Sydney, Australia. She established TRIPOM ANZ with Richard and is currently co-chairing with him. She will be completing her fellowship in Perioperative Medicine at Guy’s and St Thomas Hospital, London. Her main aim is to ensure older patients undergoing surgery are not only medically optimized but are risk assessed for cognitive concerns related to surgery and are risk stratified to reduce risk of developing delirium. She is also involved in various committees within hospital and advocates for mental welfare of junior doctors. Outside of medicine she loves spending time with her two labradors and enjoys watching a good movie.
