Dr Kevin Shotliff
Having qualified from St George’s Hospital Medical School, University of London in 1987, I undertook a General Medical Registrar rotation before studying for my Master Degree at the Hammersmith Hospital looking into the pathogenesis of diabetic retinopathy. In June 1998 I was appointed Consultant Physician with an interest in Diabetes and Endocrinology at Kingston Hospital, Surrey where I ran a district general hospital diabetes and endocrinology service, with out-reach diabetes and endocrinology clinics and was Chairman of the Department of Medicine and Trust Information Technology Lead for my last 4 years there.
In March 2003 I moved to the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and with 3 colleagues provide a busy in-patient and outpatient Endocrinology and Diabetes service. I have a particular interest in diabetes microvascular complications, new therapies, Thyroid disease, PCOS and pituitary disease as well as running the adolescent diabetes, diabetic retinopathy clinics and a joint endocrine surgery clinic. I also hold Honorary Consultant Endocrinologist Contracts with the Royal Brompton Hospital, and the Royal Marsden Hospital, London.
I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer with Imperial College, head the Imperial Year 3 examination board, am the Clinical Tutor for Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and run an MSc module in Diabetic Retinopathy for the University of Roehampton Diabetes MSc program as well as teaching and examining on the Rila Postgraduate Diploma in Diabetes.
I have written several diabetes and endocrinology postgraduate text book chapters including the diabetes and lipid sections in both editions of the Oxford Handbook of Diabetes and Endocrinology. I have written the diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism chapters in undergraduate and postgraduate text books and am actively involved in both undergraduate and postgraduate education on this site. I also have an Imperial Undergraduate tutorial group as well as clinical students attached to my medical team and am head of the Year 3 Examination Board for the Imperial MB BS degree.
My current research interests involve patient expectations of diabetic retinopathy screening programs and structural problems related to the implementation of the screening for this complication of diabetes as well as a project in cystic fibrosis related diabetes.
