Mrs Nitu Bajekal
MBBS, MD, DNB, FRCOG
I undertook training as a medical student in Pondicherry in India. I did my post graduate studies, with research in fetal medicine in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences between the years 1987 - 1991. I then came to the UK for higher training in 1992.
My main gynaecological interest is Minimal Access Surgery (Keyhole Surgery) and Cervical Cancer screening. I also have a special interest in Ectopic Pregnancy, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Recurrent Miscarrage.
Over the last twenty years in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, I have developed and maintained a keen interest in Medical Education. Between 2002 and 2008, I was the Royal College Tutor responsible for training junior doctors at Barnet hospital. In 2007 I was appointed as the Training Programme Directorfor ST1/2 trainees in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, which provided me with a fantastic opportunity to dedicate herself to the training & mentoring of junior doctors at a national level.
In 2007, I organised and set up a Centralised Teaching programme for ST1/2 in North London. It now provides high quality teaching & has proven so successful, that a centralised programme has been rolled out to all levels of trainees from 2009.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mrs Nitu Bajekal at Spire include:
