Dr Kaura graduated from the University of Bristol, with degrees in both Physiological Sciences and Medicine. From achieving a number of scholarships and awards, to obtaining a highly-sought after place to undertake a cardiology sub-internship at Harvard Medical School, his energy and enthusiasm led to his nomination and selection as a BMA Next Generation Academic Role Model in 2012. He completed the initial stages of his clinical academic training at the University of Bristol, England, and is currently balancing his NHS training duties as a cardiology registrar at King’s College Hospital, London, with his part-time Executive Masters in Health Economics, Outcomes and Management in Cardiovascular Sciences at the London School of Economics and Political Science, in conjunction with the European Society of Cardiology. Dr Kaura is due to complete the remainder of his Cardiology registrar training at Hammersmith and St Mary’s Hospitals, London, as an academic clinical fellow at Imperial College London. His research interests include ICDs and statistical methods for analysis of complex health data.
