About Dr Fishman

Dr Daniel Fishman qualified from St Mary's Hospital, Paddington in 1988, after studying Medicine for 6 years.  During this time he also spent 12 months working for a BSc in Neuroanatomy, which was a very useful introduction to the world of academic research.

His first job was in Medicine at Ealing General Hospital, before returning to St Mary's to work as a Surgical Houseman.  He then spent 2 and a half years as an SHO, in several medical specialties, during which time he obtained his MRCP qualification.

His first post in Rheumatology was at Northwick Park Hospital, where he worked as a Registrar in Adult Rheumatology under Dr Michael Denman. He was also the Registrar responsible for the inpatient care of the adolescent and young adult patients of  the Department of Paediatric and Molecular Rheumatology , headed by Dr (now Professor) Pat Woo. During this time at Northwick Park he gained experience in General (Internal) Medicine, Clinical Immunology and Rheumatology, and  particularly in Paediatric Rheumatology. This was an unusual job for an adult-trained physician, and the experience triggered his interest in Paediatric Rheumatology, which has continued to be one of his main clinical areas of interest.

In 1994 Dr Fishman obtained a prestigious 3 year grant from the arthritis research campaign to study for a PhD in Molecular Rheumatology under Professor Woo. Her  departments laboratories were then  based at the Middlesex/University College Hospitals, and its clinical base was split between there and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).  During his time in research, Dr Fishman continued his clinical responsibilities, both in adult Rheumatology, and also seeing young patients with  rheumatic diseases at GOSH.

After obtaining his PhD, he continued his senior Rheumatology training at The Royal London Hospital, and the Whipps Cross Hospital., before obtaining his consultant post at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital.
