Fellowships / Memberships / Work Experiences

I completed M.Sc in Rheumatology (Merit) in the University of Manchester (UK).

I trained in Paediatric Rheumatology in Royal Manchester Children’s hospital (UK) - 10 months And then as National Grid trainee (selected on merit to train in Paediatric Rheumatology) in Leeds General Infirmary (UK) - 7 months

Great Ormond Street Hospital (UK) - 16 months

I did my Paediatric Rheumatology training in one of the leading Paediatric Rheumatology centres in the world under some of the best world experts in Paediatric Rheumatology.

During my training, I gained very good experience in a wide range of rheumatological inflammatory conditions including JIA, connective tissue diseases(SLE, etc), scleroderma, systemic sclerosis and overlap syndromes, juvenile inflammatory myopathies, vasculitis, auto-inflammatory and fever syndromes, sarcoidosis , CRMO etc as well as non-inflammatory conditions including hypermobility, genetic syndromes, idiopathic pain syndromes, chronic regional pain syndrome and mechanical pain.

Extensive exposure to a wide spectrum of severity and the very complex and severe forms of these diseases has given me very good experience in the work up and management of these conditions.

I have very good experience in performing joint injections in small children for the treatment of arthritis.
