After fulfilling her Australian College of Emergency Medicine requirements in 2011, Nima completed her College of Intensive Care Medicine Fellowship requirements in early 2015. She is trained in critical care echocardiography, ECMO, paediatric care, and has spent the last year of her training as a Critical Care Fellow at The Austin ICU, the state spinal and liver transplant centre.
