My name is Dr Mandar Marathe. I am a Senior Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Hamad General Hospital in Doha, Qatar.

Born in India but raised in the UK, I went to medical school in Southampton, and qualified as a doctor in 1999. After 4 years of surgical training, I decided to specialise in Emergency Medicine in 2003.

I have worked almost exclusively in Emergency Medicine since 2003. I did part of my specialist training in Brisbane, Australia. I have additional qualifications in Medical Toxicology, and experience in Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine. In 2009 I became a Fellow of the College of Emergency Medicine (FCEM).

Between 2010 and 2012 I worked as a Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Leicester Royal Infirmary in Leicester, UK. During 2011-2012 I was an Associate Clinical Lead there, in one of the largest Emergency Departments in the UK.

Since October 2012 I have worked as a Senior Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Hamad General Hospital in Doha, Qatar. My interests are Resuscitation, and Management (in particular Quality Improvement & Service Development).

I am the Course Organiser of the Central FCEM Course and MCEM International OSCE Course. I also teach on the Sheffield MCEM Course. I am the author of The Successful Speaker: 273 Tips for Powerful Presentations.
