Dr Immanuel Judson Paul
I'm Immanuel Judson Paul, a doctor in emergency medicine for the past eight years. My journey started with training in India, where I fell in love with the diverse patient experiences that emergency medicine offers.
One thing that really gets me excited is point-of-care ultrasound. I'm always on the lookout for fun ways to teach this valuable skill through simulation.
Not too long ago, I was honored with the Innovation in Emergency Medicine Education Prize from the Royal Society of Medicine. The project that got me this recognition used gamification to teach over 100 healthcare professionals point-of-care ultrasound simulation.
Join me on this journey as I continue exploring ways to make point-of-care ultrasound simulation accessible and engaging. Let's make learning a little more exciting!
Dr Dimitri Kontogeorgis
I have been an EM Consultant since August 2013.
I am currently the Associate Clinical Lead for the Emergency Department at the RBH and mental health lead for the department.
For the past 2 years or so I have served as a Regional Clinical Advisor for NHS England covering the South-East (Urgent and Emergency Care/UEC).
Having completed a BA honours degree in 2022 through Henley Business School (University of Reading), my special interests lie in healthcare leadership and management.
Dr Adham Khalek
After graduating from Barts and the London School of Medicine & Dentistry in 2004, I became part of the final group of Pre-registration House Officers before the Foundation program was introduced. Despite the tumultuous period that followed with MMC/MTAS, I navigated through relatively unscathed. My postgraduate training in Emergency and Intensive Care Medicine in the East of England & London Deanery led me to my role as an EM Consultant at OUH in 2013.
Throughout my tenure as a consultant, I've cultivated a keen interest in leadership and service/quality improvement. I'm particularly drawn to leveraging digitization, data sets, and visualization to empower clinicians and enhance processes. In 2021, I joined the divisional informatics team as MRC Co-Lead and completed a PG Dip in Digital Leadership at Imperial. Concurrently, I've served as the Clinical Lead for Emergency Medicine at OUH since 2021.
In tandem with my medical career, since 2001, I've pursued a parallel path in the Royal Navy as a Reservist. This commitment led me to an operational deployment in Helmand, Afghanistan, and provided numerous opportunities, including completing the Advanced Command & Staff Course in 2014. By the end of 2021, I wrapped up a significant four-year National appointment overseeing all Royal Navy reserve medical officers.

I am an A&E trainee at Leeds with over 10 years of experience in Emergency Medicine. I am also the founder of Practical ECG Courses - a dream project which aims at changing how ECGs are interpreted in Emergency Medicine. A strong believer that advanced ECG interpretation is possible in the ED, I help Emergency Physicians develop advanced ECG interpretation skills beyond pattern recognition, by utilising a concept based approach to ECGs relevant to EM. Outside of work, I enjoy music, reading, watching movies & having long philosophical chats with friends & family.
