Having completed his basic medical degree (MBBS) in 2000, and an MD in 2004, Dr Malaviya went on to train in General Medicine working in several hospitals in East Anglia. After attaining MRCP in 2006, he pursued his specialist interest in rheumatology and worked as a clinical research fellow at the Rheumatology Research Unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge and subsequently enrolled in the five year specialty training programme in 2007.
Dr Malaviya trained in both rheumatology and internal medicine, working at Southend Hospital, Broomfield and Addenbrooke’s. He completed the rheumatology exit exam in 2008 and achieved an MRCP (Rheum) in 2008. Over the course of his training he has presented several papers at international conferences and published several papers in peer-reviewed journals. He has been a full-time NHS consultant working at Mid Essex Hospital Trust between 2012-2017 and has recently moved to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge to pursue his research interests in early arthritis.
Having run clinical trials in Cambridge during his training, Dr Malaviya set up rheumatology research locally in Chelmsford and continues to be involved in rheumatology research. He has several papers published on newer therapies in rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and other inflammatory diseases.
