About me

Dr Joseph Kwan has more than 20 years of specialist experience in stroke medicine, geriatric medicine and internal medicine.

He qualified from Bristol University (Medicine 1994), Southampton University (MPhil 2000) and Edinburgh University (MD 2002). He also trained at University College London's Institute of Neurology, Queens Square (postgraduate certificate in clinical neurology with distinction 2006), Cornell University (plant-based nutrition 2015) and University of California San Francisco (dementia scholarship 2015).

Dr Kwan has been a stroke specialist since 2006. From 2008 to 2010, he was the clinical lead for the regional stroke network; and from 2013 to 2018, he took up an academic position as a clinical associate professor (reader) at Hong Kong University.

He returned to Imperial College London in 2018 as a senior stroke consultant, honorary senior lecturer, and head of original stroke research. He has published over 115 peer-reviewed scientific articles and written book chapters in his specialist fields, and became the first-ever Fellow of the American Heart Association in the UK in 2021.

Dr Kwan welcomes referrals for all problems related to stroke and ageing. He is a strong advocate of the holistic self-care approach to recovery, combining optimal nutrition and physical conditioning to promote well-being of the body and mind.

Outside of work, he is a father of four and has a passion for sports and fitness training.
