Dr. Nihal Abosaif

Consultant Acute Physician at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, University hospital Birmingham

I have wide experience in Acute, renal and stroke medicine. I have been a consultant since 2007 and I have supervised a lot of medical trainees in different grades. I share in management and leadership, and I have excellent communication skills. I have been the clinical lead of the acute medicine department for three years when I was in Coventry until Dec 2017 then I moved to University Hospital Birmingham, heartlands Hospital and became the educational and recruitment lead from 2018 till 2023. I am accredited in level 2 USS scanning and have been running many POCUS and FAMUS courses as well as USS guided procedures course for the last 10 years.

Our courses have always gained excellent feedback and all doctors/ ACPs would love to practice USS following the course. I am a FAMUS accredited trainer/ supervisor for the acute medicine trainees in West Midlands. Our FAMUS course has been accredited by the SAM and FAMUS societies and we have run our first standalone course in heartlands hospital on 24/2/2024.

I have very good skills in research and statistics as I did my research fellowship in Harvard Medical School and Sheffield University. I have been awarded a distinction for my Masters in Renal medicine from Sheffield University in 2004.

Lastly, I am an independent accredited appraiser and can help many doctors in their appraisal especially doctors who don’t have a responsible officer. I have managed to appraise more than 150 doctors over the last three years including consultants and helped in their revalidation process.
