After completion of internship and community service, he spent 6 months at the Wits Donald Gordon Medical Centre ICU under the mentorship of Dr Gunter Schleicher.

From 2012-2015, he established and convened Groote Schuur Hospital’s FCA part 1 teaching program, and is an examiner for the College of Medicine’s FCA part 1 examination. Nick was voted Consultant of the Year by the 2014 Anaesthetic registrar body.
