I have been a Visiting and Host Examiner for the MRCP Royal College of Physicians of London for the last ten years and also a member of the Question Setting group for the Specialty Certificate Examination (SCE). I am also an examiner for the Professional and Linguistics Assessment Board (PLAB) conducted by the GMC and the undergraduate examination at Bart's and The London School of Medicine.
I am an editorial board member of two major journals and review articles for more than a dozen journals in rheumatology.
