Mr Rohit Pratap qualified as a doctor from Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 1996. His basic surgical training was undertaken in various district general and teaching hospitals in the London area. He completed two full-time years of laboratory-based medical research in his training and holds BSc and MSc degrees. Having obtained his membership at the Royal College of Surgeons in 2001 and diploma in otolaryngology in 2002, he undertook his higher surgical training in the East Anglia region, working at Addenbrookes, Norfolk and Norwich, Peterborough, Lister, and Luton and Dunstable Hospitals, obtaining comprehensive training in all common ENT elective and emergency conditions.
The region is particularly strong in otology. He obtained his final college exit examination in Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery FRCS (ORL-HNS) at the first attempt in early 2009.
Mr Pratap's post-fellowship training took him to the Northern Territory of Australia as Senior Fellow in Otolaryngology, based in Darwin, but he also flew out to more remote areas every month. With the high humidity, one quarter of population indigenous ethnicity and increasing remote healthcare in this part of Australia, he was exposed to a wide range of ENT conditions in challenging circumstances, especially in advanced chronic ear disease which is rife in that part of the world. He was performing three or four mastoidectomies per week and treated many serious complications from advanced ENT disease.
Mr Pratap obtained his Certificate of Completion of Training from the Eastern Deanery in September 2010 and entered on to the Specialist Register.
