Nileema Patel

I joined the Public Health Training Scheme in August 2019 and will be completing the Masters in Global Health Science and Epidemiology during the first year.  Prior to this, having finished my second year as a foundation doctor in 2018, I took a year out of training to explore my interests in research and healthcare management, which included working on a clinical trial for dementia prevention.  My previous experience in public health includes studying Global Health through an intercalated BSc, during medical school, for which my dissertation focused on a comparative study of the impact of participatory action versus community education on health outcomes. I have also undertaken research on the portrayal of health inequalities in the UK at the University of Pennsylvania Political Science Department, and interned at the World Trade Center Health Registry within the New York City Department of Health.
