    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    Kal has been involved in treating sports and musculoskeletal related injuries since 2002. He qualified from Birmingham University in 1995 and underwent basic surgical training through the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and then underwent specialist sports medicine training spending 5 years in Australia. This included a year at the Australian Institute of Sport, completing a full time Masters Degree in Sports Medicine, prior to commencing advanced specialist training with the Australasian College of Sports Physicians. This was interrupted when he relocated to the UK to take up the position as Club Doctor for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club where he stayed for over 2 years before concentrating on his private practice in Sports Medicine.
    Current positions are as follows: Medical Director, Leicester Tigers Rugby Union; Honorary Physician for the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine; Honorary Clinical Teacher, Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health, University College London; private practice in Sports Medicine at Sports Medicine and High Performance Centres in London as well as the Spire Leicester Hospital.
    He has worked with sports from grass roots through to National Teams, having been on tour with the National Australian Men's and Women's Senior Hockey Teams as well as Australian National Football teams. Kal also provided medical coverage as Team Doctor for The Australian Cricket Team 2009 Ashes 5th test and 2009 One Day International series, for The Wallabies whilst on tour in the UK in 2008, the Brumbies Rugby Union and Sydney Swans AFL reserve teams and the Sydney International Tennis tournament. He also covered the World University Games in Serbia in 2009 as Team Doctor to the Australian Team.

    Personal profile:

    I wanted to pursue a career in sports and exercise medicine ever since I was a junior doctor and attended a sports medicine course at Lilleshall National Sports Centre in Shropshire. It proved harder than I thought to find the correct career progression and so I underwent basic surgical training, with an emphasis on orthopaedics, got the required qualifications and left for Australia to undertake specialist sports medicine training which has a clearly defined, well established training programme. In 2006 I returned to the UK to work with Tottenham Hotspur Football Club as their Club Doctor and then left 2 years later to concentrate on private practice in sports medicine. The opportunity came to work for one of Europe’s top Rugby Union sides - Leicester Tigers -  this sees me back in my hometown of Leicester a couple of days a week, which is great. Away from work I like to combine holidays with scuba diving and regularly play golf - when the weather is good!
