Research interests

Dr Nisha's clinical teaching method has always been "Seeing is believing", which encourages students to clerk, examine and interview as many patients as possible. Facilitating her teaching sessions in the antenatal and gynaecology clinics allow them to see an array of clinical pathology and access to examining patients.

Dr Nisha also has a keen interest in developing clinical skills simulation in obstetric practice as it is now getting more difficult to get access to consenting patients for various invasive procedures. Clinical simulation better prepares the undergraduate to not only enhance their skills but boost their confidence levels. She hopes to further integrate this practice by including midwifery students and management if common obstetric emergencies.

There are also plans to collaborate some of these practices with Monash University, Australia.
