My Story

Dr Nigel Giam graduated from Guys and St Thomas UMDS in 1997 with 1st Class Honors and a Distinction in Medicine.

He worked as a Medical Registrar and MRCP PACES Course Organiser at St Thomas before commencing GP Training with SLOVTS. He continues to work as a Senior GP Tutor, GP seminar leader and OSCE Examiner for Kings College School of Medicine.

He attained a Distinction in the MRCGP in 2002, attaining a Merit in the AKT, Video and Viva modules. He was awarded the RCGP National Roche Award in the same year.

He was a RCGP Faculty Tutor and MRCGP Examiner between 2003 to 2007, taking on the role of Course Director for the RCGP Pan London Faculties MRCGP Course.

He is currently an active GP trainer, Senior ARCP Chair and has been the lead GP TPD for St Marys GPVTS since 2007. He is an accredited HEE AKT  / RCA Trainer and runs regular AKT and RCA Workshops for GP Training Schemes within HEE London and also nationally. More recently he has been commissioned by HEE London to help address differential attainment and support IMG GPSTs.

His ethos for teaching is simple.
