I qualified in Pakistan and after doing my post graduation from the College of Physicians and Surgeons worked as a Consultant Physician in Medicine for more than three years in a busy hospital in Islamabad. I came to the UK in 1998 and did the membership of Royal College of Physicians of UK and worked for more than a year as registrar dealing with medical and geriatric patients.
I left in 2000 for a year, during which I worked in Saudi Arabia as a Consultant Physician in a General Hospital. I came back in 2001 to take up my training in Medicine and Geriatrics, initially in Leicester and later in Oxford. I did a year long post-graduate certificate course in Evidence Based Healthcare at Oxford University.
