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.
