About me

Ali Malik trained for many years in and around London and South East England. This included research at the Royal Free Hospital and he was awarded a distinction for his thesis on how to activate death pathways in gastrointestinal cancers.

He obtained clinical experience at King's College Hospital, Medway Hospital, St Thomas' Hospital, Guy's Hospital and Lewisham Hospital. Majority of his trainers were experienced laparoscopic (keyhole) surgeons and this has had a major impact on his skills as a surgeon. He was awarded a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in 2013. He topped his experience with a post CCT Fellowship at the Basingstoke Hospital where he managed patients with advanced abdominal cancer referred there from the rest of the UK, Ireland, Europe and the Middle East.

In 2014 he was offered a consultant surgeon job at Ipswich Hospital and he has enjoyed living in Ipswich ever since.
