About me

Dr Kipps is an honorary consultant sport and exercise medicine physician at UCLH and principal clinical teaching fellow at the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health, UCL, where he is co-lead on the Sports Medicine, Exercise and Health MSc programme.

He grew up playing sport in South Africa and came over to the UK to finish his education. He graduated in medicine from Nottingham University in 2000 and completed basic surgical training in London and the South-West. In 2006 he was awarded an MSc with distinction in Sport and Exercise Medicine from Queen Mary, University of London. He continued his sports medicine physician training on the London Deanery’s higher specialist training programme, qualifying as a GP along the way. In 2010 Dr Kipps was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to study sport and exercise medicine overseas. This fellowship took him to Harvard and Stanford Universities in the USA as well as Olympic Park Sports Medicine Centre in Melbourne in 2010/11. He was appointed to his current post at UCLH in 2011.

Dr Kipps is the assistant medical director of the London Marathon. Between 2011 and 2018 he served as medical director of the London and Blenheim Triathlons. He was the club doctor for Harlequins Rugby Club between 2012 and 2019. He has worked with Team GB at the European Athletics Championships, Winter Paralympics holding camp and the World University Games. During the London Olympics and Paralympics he volunteered as a sports doctor working ring-side in taekwondo and at the polyclinic in the Athlete’s Village. He has worked with a variety of other teams and sports including skiing, gymnastics, football and martial arts.

He is joint organiser of “Marathon Medicine”, an annual conference on the medicine and science of endurance running. On this theme he leads several avenues of collaborative research to better understand the medical complications that arise during endurance exercise. He has published and spoken internationally in this field.
