Education & Training:
Pritam Singh conducted his pre-clinical training in Medicine at Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge where he was also awarded an intercalated degree in Neurosciences in 2002. He completed his clinical training at University College London in 2005 where he was awarded a certificate of Merit in his final examinations.
During his Higher Surgical Training in the West Midlands Deanery, Pritam had the privilege of being trained in both radical open and minimally invasive surgery techniques across a range of disciplines including pancreatic and retroperitoneal sarcoma units before sub-specialising in benign and malignant Oesophago-Gastric surgery. He subsequently performed a specialist Oesophago-Gastric Fellowship at the high volume Trent Oesophago-Gastric Unit within Nottingham University Hospitals.
After completing his training, Pritam visited Takeshi Sano’s team at the Cancer Institute Hospital in Tokyo, Japan, where he learnt from their extensive experience in minimally invasive (both laparoscopic and robotic) gastric cancer surgery.
