He successfully passed the Fellowship of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons (FRCS) exam for Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery on his first attempt. Shortly afterwards he was admitted to the General Medical Council Specialist Register as an Orthopaedic Specialist.

Mr Shahids fellowship training was at the prestigious arthroplasty unit in Nottingham City Hospital under the auspices of Andrew Manktelow and Peter James, where he learnt how to manage complex hip and knee problems.

During his training he published a Physiology Textbook for medical students, numerous book chapters and over 20 scientific papers. Most recently he has contributed chapters to a book offering a virtual fellowship in hip surgery. Mr Shahid has presented his work nationally and internationally and won numerous prizes.
