Training & Background
|Year first qualified:
Dr Mohan trained in medicine at St. John’s Medical College Hospital, one of India’s leading institutions. She graduated with merit in 1999 and completed her internship, before taking up postgraduate training in the UK.
Paediatrics was her chosen field from an early stage, which included working at the adolescent unit of Great Ormond Street Hospital. Senior posts followed, before Dr Mohan entered the GMC’s specialist register for paediatrics in 2011.
She developed a special interest in endocrinology, related to growth, puberty difficulties, or diabetes in children. This led to treating obesity and eating disorders, which she specialised in with an Oxford children’s unit.
During her time as a community paediatrician, Dr Mohan realised that many other difficulties were a result of undiagnosed autism spectrum conditions.
She now regularly treats children with autism, helping with associated concerns the condition can bring, including sleep disruption.
The experience and insight Dr Mohan brings is invaluable to children with a range of conditions and to their families. She believes that a wider view of a child’s life is part of finding the best way forward. An approach which is evident in specialist areas she supports:
