Dr Padman Vamadevan completed a Natural Sciences degree at Queens’ College, Cambridge, and subsequently completed his medical degree on the fast-track programme at Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ School of Medicine in London. During his Academic Foundation training at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospitals, he worked at Quintiles Drug Research Unit as a Clinical Trials Physician, where he was involved in trial design and management, adverse event reporting, and trial data analysis.
Following this, he was appointed as an Academic Clinical Fellow in Clinical Pharmacology at St George’s Hospital. During this period, he published several peer-reviewed papers, and received a fellowship to speak about his research at the European Respiratory Society congress. He has also been a keen educator, both to medical students and allied health professionals, delivering a spectrum of teaching ranging from small group-based discussions to formal lectures.
Subsequently, he has taken up posts at the Macmillan Cancer Centre, Royal Marsden Hospital, and more recently, the Heart of Kent Hospice, which have afforded him significant relevant clinical experience. His familiarity with Biochemistry, Clinical Pharmacology, and Oncology are consistent with the academic lineages that underpin the metabolic treatments offered by the Care Oncology Clinic.
