Hajira is a GP and National Institute for Health Research Doctoral Fellow. She completed her medical training in 2009 followed by academic foundation training in London, alongside an MSc in Evidence Based Healthcare at Oxford University. She undertook general practice training combined with an Academic Clinical Fellowship at the University of Cambridge between 2011-15.
Hajira’s research is focused on the prevention of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. In 2015 she was awarded her current fellowship to examine the role of patient-practitioner interactions in modifying health behaviours and cardiovascular risk factor levels in type 2 diabetes. Her work is based at the primary care unit and the MRC Epidemiology Unit as part of the Diabetes Prevention Group.
Hajira has been a clinical supervisor for the University of Cambridge Clinical School since 2011. She supervises stage 1-3 students at St Johns and Kings College. She also completed her communication skills facilitator training and enjoys teaching on these sessions.
