About me

She became a member of the Royal College of Physicians (London) in 2001, following which she trained as a dermatologist at Barts and The London, The Royal Free and King’s College Hospitals in London, which provided her with very broad and extensive dermatology experience. During the course of her dermatology training she was awarded a prestigious 3 year Medical Research Council clinical fellowship for which she completed a PhD at the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute and Centre for Cutaneous Research, Barts and The London School of Medicine (January 2009). She has presented her research at national and international skin cancer meetings and has several journal publications arising from her work. Dr Ismail has taught and examined undergraduates at Barts and The London and University College London Medical Schools, as well examined for the Post Graduate Clinical Dermatology Diploma Course (Barts and The London).
