BM MRCPCH MSc BSc (Hons)

I am an academic and clinical paediatrician, with a special interest in global health and medical education. I work at King’s College Hospital, London. My academic work is linked to the Institute of Global Health, University College London. I graduated with distinction from the University of Southampton in 2009 and have published and presented research in the fields of pharmacology, global health, and medical education. I am the chief editor of the successful Unofficial Guide to Medicine series, which regularly tops Amazon’s bestseller list for medical books. Outside of work, I enjoy tennis, travelling, gardening and scuba diving.

Zeshan Qureshi - Child Health
I am a paediatrician based at King’s College Hospital. I practise in all areas of paediatrics, including General Paediatrics, Neonatology, and Emergency Medicine. I work closely with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to deliver patient-centred care to sick children in the local community.
Stillbirth Research Presentation
I currently work as part of global collaborations to improve data and awareness of the global burden of stillbirths, and what can be done to reduce it. I am currently coediting the Oxford textbook of Global Maternal and Child Health.

I lead “The Unofficial Guide to Medicine” textbook series, which uses a unique publishing model to produce award winning, best-selling titles. The books have won awards from institutions such as the BMA, British Institute of Radiology, and The Association for the Study of Medical Education. What’s more, in the process of selling over 28,000 books, over £8000 has been raised for charity.
Zeshan Qureshi Mental Awareness
I am passionate about raising awareness about the importance of good mental health, particularly amongst healthcare professionals. Doctors in the UK have double the suicide rate of the general population. I regularly make media appearances and give talks across the world to try and make doctors more aware of how to manage their mental health.

ASME New Leader Award

In 2015, I was granted the ASME New Leader Award. This is an annual prize which recognises outstanding leadership in the field of medical education. The award is designed to provide recognition for those who have taken a leadership or management role in undergraduate, postgraduate or continuing professional development that has had clear benefit and impact on improving the quality of learning, teaching or the patient experience. Improving the quality of medical education is my main passion, and to be recognised for that by the UK’s largest medical education group means a great deal.
