About me

Francis Vaz trained at The United Medical and Dental Schools of Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals. Whilst an undergraduate he intercalated a BSc(Hons) in 1991. He qualified as a doctor (MBBS) in 1994 obtaining a distinction in Clinical Therapeutics. He passed his FRCS (Gen) and FRCS (Otol) through the Royal College of Surgeons of England whilst undertaking his Basic Surgical rotation.

Francis’ ENT training was in the South Thames training scheme and he rotated through Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals, The William Harvey Hospital (Ashford), The Medway Maritime Hospital and The Royal Sussex County Hospitals (Brighton). During this time he gained an excellent grounding in basic and super-specialist ENT.
