He completed his Masters in Sport & Exercise Medicine at QMUL, Barts and The London Hospital in 2006. After two years General Medicine and Rheumatology training in the Oxford region, he undertook more training in Sports and Exercise (SEM) in the London Deanery.

He completed his MRCP and MRCS during this process to formally qualify his breadth of clinical experience.

He has also gained a PGC in Medical Ultrasound and uses the imaging modality on a daily basis as an invaluable diagnostic point of care tool.
