Dr Nima Ghadiri is a consultant medical ophthalmologist and honorary senior clinical lecturer based at Liverpool University Hospitals. He graduated in medicine from the University of Cambridge and trained in Cambridge, Norwich and London. Medical ophthalmology is a small and unique interdisciplinary speciality concerned with the diagnosis and management of eye disorders relating to systemic disease, as well as the medical management of eye disorders. This requires expertise in both ophthalmology and internal medicine, with an emphasis on a holistic approach to patients and teamwork with colleagues from many different specialities. This integrative approach to care is reflected in Dr Ghadiri’s interests in the implementation of technology for patient care and education, and art and nature for wellbeing of patients and staff. Dr Ghadiri’s clinical focus is on eye inflammation. He is part of the Uveitis National Clinical Study Group and the WHO Technical Working Group for Uveitis. He is a teaching fellow of the higher education academy and is particularly interested in the implementation of immersive technologies for medical education, together with the context of history in medical practice.
