Dr Andrew Claridge

Consultant Gastroenterologist


Year qualified:2009


Personal profile

I graduated from Manchester in 1999 and undertook post graduate training in USA, New Zealand and Australia. I travelled widely as a junior doctor, completing a post graduate degree in expedition medicine with an interest in travelling with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

After settling into specialist training in Wessex I focused on illnesses of the lower gastrointestinal tract and completed a PhD in the role of microRNAs (a type of DNA) in inflammatory Bowel Disease. I am a passionate believer in self improvement and the development of others, I am a keen teacher, and as such encourage patients to understand and manage their own illnesses.

I have a masters degree in education and until recently a clinical lecturer in education where I focused on self directed learning.
