Gamal Bashir S Alfitori, MBChB, MRCP (UK), FRCP (Edinb)
Dr. Gamal graduated in Libya in 1995 and worked in different medical specialties including one year in medical ICU before moving to the UK in February 2013 where he completed post graduate training.
He obtained the MRCP in 2006 and joined the specialist training for internal medicine and acute medicine, choosing acute medicine as a specialty because it is challenging and rewarding. He got his CCT in September 2011 and was appointed as a consultant in general and acute medicine in Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Northern Lincolnshire in the UK.
Dr. Gamal was one of the first consultants in acute medicine appointed and entrusted with the prestigious task of developing the acute care model in the hospital, helping establish the Department of Acute Medicine (AMU, Short Stay ward and Ambulatory Care unit). The model had significantly contributed to reduction in the hospital mortality rates and also improved the discharge rates and led to a reduction in the length of stay.
During his post as a Consultant and throughout his Specialist Registrar rotation in different East Yorkshire hospitals in the UK, he has gained and consolidated broad and extensive knowledge and clinical experience in Acute Medicine and different medical specialties in both outpatient and inpatient settings.
He is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (UK), and in addition to clinical duties, has maintained CPD and actively fostered an environment to encourage teaching and training on the department for trainees.
