Arjun trained here at Clare College, Cambridge as a medical student. In continuation he stayed with the University where he received Foundation and Core Medical Training. He then commenced work as a Palliative Medicine Registrar. Since being accepted as an Academic Clinical Fellow, he has two days in the week to work on research that is relevant to his clinical practice.
His main interests lie within any areas that relate to end of life care. He is currently working on a systematic review of the efficacy of artificial hydration in the final days of life – a question that he has been asked on hospital wards more times than he can remember.
