About me

Dr David Walker qualified with distinction from Imperial College London (Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School) in 2000.

He trained in London on the North West Thames Gastroenterology rotation, working at a number of hospitals including St Mark’s Hospital, St Mary’s Hospital, and Charing Cross Hospital. This provided him with excellent training in all aspects of gastroenterology.

Dr Walker subsequently spent three years as a clinical research fellow at Imperial College London studying the role of genetics and gut bacteria in the aetiology of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and was awarded a Doctorate of Medicine in 2011. He has published his research in a number of international peer reviewed medical journals. In addition, he has written five book chapters and given invited talks for the charity Crohn's and Colitis UK.

Dr Walker has a keen interest in teaching and completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education at the Royal College of Physicians/University College London. He is a Clinical Teacher at the University of Bristol and teaches medical students at the Royal United Hospital, Bath.
