He has also been invited and regularly presented both nationally and internationally as a medical education expert.

In the undergraduate medical curriculum at the University of Dundee, he currently acts as the convenor of the cardiovascular course, the clinical lead for physiology teaching, the convenor of the introduction to curriculum outcomes course, the convenor of a transition course into clinical years, tutor in clinical skills, and the convenor of a student selected component. He has been lead for phase1 problem-based learning programme and he led on the implementation of team-based learning in the undergraduate medical curriculum. He also led and developed the Integrated Teaching Unit during the implementation of a new undergraduate medical curriculum at the University of Dundee.

He won Faculty of Medical Educators (FaME) award for Excellence in Medical Education four times in the last five years in 2017, 2016, 2014 and 2013. In 2015, he won the College of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing Learning and Teaching award for Innovation in Teaching. He was also nominated in 2014 for a University-wide Student Led Teaching Award for Most Inspirational Teaching of Undergarduates at the University of Dundee. Moreover, as Convenor of the undergraduate Cardiovascular Course, he won Best System Course Award for three consecutive academic years.

Shihab is medically qualified; and holds a PhD in Cardiac Physiology and a Master of Medical Education with Distinction from the University of Dundee.
