'Zeshan Qureshi' BM MRCPCH MSc BSc (Hons)(born March 7, 1985) is a British doctor best known for his work as a media commentator, as an academic clinician, and as a medical author.[1] He is currently an Academic Clinical Fellow at Great Ormond Street and the Institute of Global Health at University College London (UCL) in the UK. He is also a practising paediatric registrar for the London Deanery, working at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich. His clinical work spreads across all areas of paediatrics, including general paediatrics, neonatology and emergency medicine.

Personal life

Zeshan Qureshi was born in Basildon, Essex, on March 7th 1985 and graduated from Westcliff High School for Boys in 2003. He attended the University of Southampton, where he read biomedical sciences. He then went on to qualify with Distinction as a doctor in 2009 after clinical training at Southampton General Hospital, The Royal Hampshire County Hospital, and Poole Hospital. He then trained in Paediatrics and Neonatology in Edinburgh and London.

Research and Medical Education

Zeshan’s academic focus is on medical education and he has published and presented work internationally in the fields of pharmacology, global health and medical education. Whilst at Southampton, Zeshan worked with Professor Nick Curzen in the area of personalised medicine, aspirin and clopidogrel therapy.[2] As a junior doctor, he moved to the area of medical education research, looking at the role of junior doctors in medical education.[3] During his time working and training in in Edinburgh, he was part of the leadership team responsible for developing a pioneering ‘near-peer teaching programme’ across the whole of South-East Scotland. This involved training junior doctors to deliver teaching in hospitals across the area to medical students. The ‘bedside teachers’ programme focused on teaching clinical examination on real patients. The scheme was hugely successful, putting 108 tutors in touch with a total of 1,923 students to deliver 324 tutorials, and was very well received by both the medical students and junior doctor tutors.[4]

Medical Education

In 2012, Zeshan published a pioneering book, through a newly formed publishing company, "Zeshan Qureshi Ltd", called "The Unofficial Guide to Passing OSCEs".[5] Since then, he has edited a total of eight medical books, which have sold over 34,000 copies worldwide.[6][7][8][9][10][11]. His most recent publication “The Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics”, will be published in April 2017.[12] A unique publishing model is used, which involves junior doctor led writing.[13] Medical textbooks are predominantly written by senior clinicians with a vast wealth of experience in both delivering teaching and practising medicine. This traditional model has been very successful. Historically there has been a large amount of resistance to allowing more junior doctors to be teachers, leading to Zeshan's model for junior-led textbook writing to be criticised.[14] However, there is evidence in the literature suggesting that juniors can be effective medical teachers in other teaching dimensions, such as face-to-face teaching, and indeed such teaching is usually expected of junior doctors.[15] They are able to use their recent experience of being learners to relate to current students as well as identify and address the changing learning needs of students. Several small studies have suggested that junior-led teaching is effective, even when being compared with that delivered by more senior staff.[16] It may have advantages such as the approachability of the tutors and their enthusiasm and drive to organize and deliver teaching.[17] However, none of these studies specifically relate to junior doctors teaching through writing medical textbooks. Such research would add objective evidence to the potential positive benefits of junior-led textbooks. However, Zeshan’s books have been positively reviewed in medical journals,[18][19] have been added to national curriculums, such as that of the Royal College of Radiology,[20] and have won awards at national medical education conferences, including at the Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME) conference.[21][22]

Media Appearances

Zeshan is well known for sharing important messages with the general public around key health issues. He regularly works with media outlets including the BBC, ITV, Al Jazeera and LBC. [23][24][25] One key issue that Zeshan addresses is the huge global burden of stillbirths. He currently works with global collaborations to improve the data and reduce the huge numbers of stillbirths across the world, as well as raising awareness of the scale of the problem.[26][27][28][29] He regularly makes media appearances and gives talks across the world on the subject of mental health, particularly in healthcare professionals. Zeshan is passionate about raising awareness of the importance of good mental health and for sharing advice with doctors on how to manage their own mental health. Appearances include the BBC programme ‘Inside Out’.[30][31] Recently Zeshan’s media appearances have focused on the state of the NHS. During the first ever all-out junior doctor strikes in the history of the NHS in April 2016, in which junior doctors were speaking out against the proposed new junior doctor contracts, Dr Qureshi publicised the doctors perspective, including interviews with ‘Exeter Daily’,[32] the ‘Dorset Echo’[33] and ITV news.[34] He made clear the measures being taken to ensure patient safety during the strikes, and the need for urgent action to be taken to sustain the NHS. He has also spoken of rising pressures on the NHS and particularly the problems faced by the NHS during Winter 2016/17 when it was deemed the NHS had hit a ‘crisis’ point. During interviews on the Victoria Derbyshire show,[35] BBC newsnight,[36] BBC radio and ITV Good Morning Britain[37] he expressed concerns over the lack of intensive care beds, delays in emergency departments, and the shortage of doctors who are being so overworked they are becoming ill and putting their own health at risk.[38]

Awards

In April 2015, Zeshan Qureshi was awarded The British Institute of Radiology/Philips Trainee Award for Excellence[39] for "The Unofficial Guide to Radiology", which was co-edited with Mark Rodrigues. The year of 2015 also saw Zeshan win the “Leadership Development Group New Leaders Award” from the Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME) in recognition of his services to medical education in his career to date.[40][41] Previously Zeshan had won an award at the ASME conference in 2014.[42] Both ‘The Unofficial Guide to Radiology’ and ‘The Unofficial Guide to Medical Research, Audit and Teaching’ achieved ‘highly commended’ awards at the British Medical Association (BMA) Medical Book Awards, 2015.[43]
