In February 2020, he was awarded a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from the University of Birmingham for his novel research work. He was the runner up for the Young Investigator Award from the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society (BCIS) in 2017. Dr Ubaid has numerous publications and has presented in cardiology conferences on a national and international level.
He has substantial experience in the management of patients with a wide range of general heart conditions and specialises in the management of coronary heart disease, cardiovascular risk assessment, cardiovascular diseases prevention, and cardiac rehabilitation.
