Consultant Physician in Respiratory Medicine, Guy's and St. Thomas' Hospital Adjunct Professor, St. George's University School of Medicine

School Of Medicine Keynote Speaker – January 15, 2013


Dr Charles Twort qualified with distinction in 1976 from Cambridge University and St Thomas’ Hospital Medical School. He subsequently specialized in Respiratory Medicine.

He was a Medical Research Council Traveling Fellow in 1986 at the University of Miami, investigating intracellular signaling in airways smooth muscle.

On his return to the UK he was appointed Senior Lecturer in Medicine and Consultant Physician at St Thomas Hospital.

His interest in Medical Education progressed and he was appointed Assistant Clinical Dean, and subsequently Postgraduate Dean, at the Medical School. His association with the St George’s University School of Medicine started in the late 1990’s when he developed a course at St Thomas’ Hospital for St George’s graduates, which prepared them for the United Examining Board qualification.

This allowed them to register with the GMC and practise in the UK, but sadly this route no longer exists.

He continues as a Consultant Physician in General and Respiratory Medicine at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals, and he is Chairman of Exams and Assessments at King’s College London School of Medicine, and Chairman of the Question Writing Groups for Parts 1 and 2 written exams of the MRCP(UK).
