Dr Arora has ‘changed the way medical education is taught’, according to one of his nominators.
The Birmingham portfolio GP has founded his own medical education provider, Arora Medical Education, and has authored more than 60 courses for the site. He has trained nearly 1,000 trainees, and offers videos on YouTube, all aimed at GP trainees. Not bad for a man who claims to be camera shy.
It is this prolific output that has changed the face of paid-for medical education. He provides eight to 10 clinical training posts per day across four social media channels. ‘I have seen a big increase in other providers doing the same since I have,’ he says.
Arora Medical Education’s Facebook group has nearly 5,000 members and, last month, Dr Arora launched the first national GP WhatsApp group for GP exams – a ‘completely new way for trainees to learn and engage,’ he says. The group already has more than 650 participants.
He has also run free education events, offered training to GP trainers and even taught meditation at Pulse Live.
As well as this, Dr Arora is a VTS programme director in East Birmingham and Solihull. He has organised this year’s residential event for local trainees, acts as deputy to the area director for GP recruitment, and is a member of the international medical graduate faculty.
He plans to develop a training academy for doctors preparing for the GMC PLAB exam, as well as expanding his education provider into four new UK cities.
What others say ‘He is young GP who has contributed immensely to GP trainees. He works relentlessly to train the trainees to become better GPs’’
