Dr Connor trained in Gastroenterology in London and South Carolina, USA. He spent 3 years with Professor Michael Farthing's unit at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London focussing on IBD and Chronic & Infective Diarrhoea. Subsequently a year at The Royal Free Hospital concentrating mainly on IBD and IBS as well as general gastroenterology.
Dr Connor undertook an International Fellowship in Pancreatobiliary Medicine and advanced therapeutic endoscopy with Professor Peter Cotton in Charleston, SC, USA from 2000 - 2002. This high quality sought after post gave him 18 months of dedicated tutoring in all aspects of pancreatobiliary medicine and advanced therapies in endoscopy, but also opened his eyes to outcome based medicine which is now an important facet of his practice.
Dr Connor is part of the militarily, and he deploys once every 12 - 18 months, which is something he enjoys. He is the driving force behind the Military Enteric Disease Group, recently established to focus on the age old, and often misunderstood, problem of infective diarrhoea in deployed troops. This is the commonest medical problem in these soldiers and effective management and prevention can have a great impact both individually and operationally.
