Akanksha Mimi Malhotra Clinical Fellow
Mimi joined The Health Foundation on a 12-month secondment, as part of the National Medical Director’s Clinical Fellow Scheme.
Her work within the Improvement Team has been on the role of the healthcare sector in improving population health and tackling health inequalities. This has included exploring the role of the NHS as an anchor institution and the health and wellbeing of lower-paid NHS staff. These projects align with her long standing interest in the social determinants of health, access to health care for marginalised groups and tackling health inequalities.
Mimi studied Medicine at King’s College London, graduating in 2016. She then completed the Academic Foundation Programme, researching the epidemiology of atypical mycobacteria, latent tuberculosis screening and smoking cessation. She has since completed Core Medical Training in London, with a view to becoming an academic respiratory physician.
Mimi is currently Vice-President of the Respiratory Section at the Royal Society of Medicine and an Expert Member on the London Bridge Research Ethics Committee. She holds a postgraduate certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education.
