Dr. Chandni Pujara
Psychiatrist, NHS London
Born and raised in the UK, after receiving her first degree in Neuroscience at Kings College London, went on to read Medicine in America where she completed her preclinical training and moved into Poland in order to gain experience within the EU. After graduating with an M.D, she went on to work for Cambridge University Health Partners. Having gained international experience, including internships in the USA, Africa, India and Eastern Europe, her time at Cambridge shaped her into a “Doctor” and led her to obtain a coveted role specialising in Psychiatry with Imperial College London. Academics aside, Chandni has always encouraged fellow medics to have a good work, life balance, and as such has been President of External affairs of the Student Government Association whilst at University, and, most recently, President of the Doctors Association at the hospital she works at. Currently she is working towards gaining full membership of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and promoting physical health promotion in patients with severe mental illness all the while trying to quash the taboo around mental health.
