Dr Uttam Shiralkar, FRCS, MRPsych, is a surgical performance coach based in the UK.Uttam worked as a surgeon for 15 years in the UK, India, and the US before moving to psychiatry. This transition was the result of the medical problems he faced after a serious car accident. While working in psychiatry, it became clear to him the profound impact that a surgeon’s psychology has on performance and surgical outcomes. This revelation inspired him to bring psychological research into surgical practice and training.
