Nik completed an Honours Degree (BHSc) in Health Sciences and an MSc in Health Services Research at the University of Calgary, Canada.
Nik was selected as a Clarendon Scholar in 2013 to support his pursuit of a PhD (DPhil) in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences.
For his doctoral research he is examining interventions to reduce unscheduled hospital admissions.
His previous research focused on the quality of care for injury patients, most notably, incorporating patient and family perspectives into quality of care measurement.
His research interests include methodology for evidence synthesis (overviews of systematic reviews); variations in health care practices; quality of care; and evidence-based medicine.
As a student member of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, Nik is actively involved in teaching Evidence-Based Practice at the Undergraduate and Post-graduate level. He is also a founding faculty member of Evidence International, an organization which strives to increase capacity for evidence-based health care in low- and middle-resource settings through the development and delivery of educational programmes, tools, and technologies.
