My name is Dr Mandar Marathe. I am a Consultant in Emergency Medicine based in Leicester, UK.

Born in India but raised in the UK, I went to medical school in Southampton, and qualified as a doctor in 1999. After 4 years of surgical training, I decided to specialise in Emergency Medicine in 2003.

I have worked almost exclusively in Emergency Medicine since 2003, becoming a Member of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (MRCEM) in 2004. I did part of my specialist training in Brisbane, Australia. I have additional qualifications in Medical Toxicology, and experience in Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine. In 2009 I became a Fellow of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (FRCEM).

Between 2010 and 2012 I worked as a Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Leicester Royal Infirmary – in one of the largest Emergency Departments in the UK. During 2011 – 2012 I was an Associate Clinical Lead in this department.

In 2012 – 2014 I was a Senior Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Hamad General Hospital in Doha, Qatar. My main interests were Clinical Leadership (in particular Quality Improvement & Service Development) and Resuscitation.

Since 2015 I have been a Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Kettering General Hospital. In 2016 I returned to Leicester Royal Infirmary as a Consultant in Emergency Medicine, where I held the post of Interim Head of Service for Emergency Medicine for 4 months.

I was the Course Organiser of the Central FCEM Course and MCEM International OSCE Course. I also taught on the Sheffield MCEM Course. I am the author of The Successful Speaker: 273 Tips for Powerful Presentations.
