ISTP stories

Meet our current and former ISTP trainees and be inspired by their stories. Read about the journeys of the UK consultants who supervised and supported ISTP trainees during their experiences in the UK.

  • There is no stress if you do what you love. It is called passion, not stress. You tend to be in a career rather than just a job.

    Melanie Amarasooriya

    Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon (Hand and Upper limb)

  • It is important to listen to the patient and offer patient centred care. It is easy to get lost in technological advances which may not address the patient needs.

    Charles Mabedi

    Consultant Urologist

  • The programme has helped me in both areas as I feel that I relate with patients better. I am also more focussed personally on my goals and targets.

    Josiah Moki Mwendwa

    Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon

  • My dream for the future is for this programme to result in a world wide community of surgeons who continue to let surgical knowledge and skills thrive through ongoing cooperation and networking.

    Willem Schenk

    Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

  • It is a mutual benefit. The ISTP trainees see the benefits of having a structured training programme and the UK trainees see how hardworking the ISTP trainees are.
