We are lucky to have a proactive and innovative team of directors that are keen to work with trainees to provide the highest quality training and support them in their development.
Dr Asif Omar
I completed my GP Training in the Lake District and shortly thereafter moved to Suffolk to be nearer family.
Since that time I have worked locally and have been a GP Partner since 2003.
Over that time I have expanded my educational interests having held roles such GP Tutor, GP Trainer, Honorary Senior Lecturer and an Undergraduate Facilitator for Cambridge University.
I was appointed as TPD for the Colchester Scheme in early 2016. I hope to use my knowledge and experience to make the scheme a rewarding and enjoyable programme.
I look forward to working with you all in the future.
Dr Amit Tiwari
I qualified from Imperial College school of medicine and did my GP training in Surrey.
I moved to Essex to be closer to family. I have been a GP partner since 2007 and a full GP trainer since 2013.
I started as a TPD for Colchester in September 2018.
I have a passion for General practice and training.
My other interests include movies and cricket.
I look forward to working with GP trainees through our innovative and supportive training programme.
