BSc MBBS MSc (candidate)
Eva graduated from University College London with a Bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology before obtaining her medical degree at St Bartholomew and The Royal London medical school. She completed the Foundation Programme in East of England and went on to conduct medical and educational volunteer work across Europe and East Africa. Eva was excited to lead as a project manager on a human rights initiative in Sudan and later to take on an Associate Lecturer position teaching medical undergraduates at the largest medical college in the Middle East. She returned to full time clinical work in medical and surgical specialties with notable roles in Neurosurgery at the Atkinson Morley in St George’s, London as well as Intestinal Failure medicine at St Mark’s Hospital. Having worked across specialties as a junior doctor, she now brings vast experience to her interdisciplinary role in general practice training. Eva is the first trainee completing an NIHR funded Academic Clinical Fellowship in an innovative East of England post, linking Cambridge University, Anglia Ruskin Medical School and the Chelmsford GPVTS programme.
Eva has joined the Clinical Nursing Research Group at the PCU, working with Professor Christi Deaton on data analysis for the Optimise HFpEF trial, looking at patient and carer experiences of Heart Failure management across primary and secondary care. During the Fellowship, she will also collaborate on a departmental systematic review while planning to lead an independent review on the clinical impact of social determinants of health.
Having an interest in global health, education and policy, Eva is pursuing the Master’s in Global Health and Health Professions Education at King’s College London, with a special research focus on health workforce and migration.
