Miss Katharine Bevan qualified from The Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine (University of London) in 1998 having also completed a BSc in Clinical Immunology. She completed her Basic surgical training on the south coast in Bournemouth, Poole and Southampton hospitals. Her higher surgical training was in the Wessex region at Portsmouth, Southampton, Salisbury and Bournemouth Hospitals.

Miss Bevan was appointed as the Covidien laparoscopic colorectal fellow at Basingstoke in 2009. During this year as well as personally gaining experience in all aspects of laparoscopic colorectal surgery she also assisted in training other colorectal surgeons these specialist laparoscopic techniques.
