Dr Rupert Williams studied medicine at St George’s University of London, graduating with a clinical distinction in 2006. After completing his foundation training in University College Hospital London, he was awarded an Academic Clinical Fellowship in Cardiovascular Diseases at St Thomas’ Hospital, leading to completing a PhD in Cardiovascular Physiology in 2016 under Professors Marber and Redwood. This clinical PhD in coronary artery disease patients investigated the physiological adaptations that the heart undergoes during physical exertion: in particular the adverse adaptations that occur during cold air inhalation, and conversely the beneficial adaptations that occur after a period of warm up exercise. His work won the Young Investigator Award at the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society in 2016, and his PhD was nominated for the Elsevier outstanding thesis award.
He undertook his Cardiology specialist training at Medway, Worthing, St George’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals. He was then appointed as a Locum Consultant Cardiologist at St George’s Hospital in 2018, and a Substantive Consultant Cardiologist at St George’s and Kingston Hospitals in 2019.
Dr Williams’s specialist interest is in coronary angioplasty, including complex PCI and chronic total occlusion PCI, but he has a broad experience of general cardiology and aims to offer holistic care to his patients. He is involved in undergraduate and post-graduate teaching and is co-curricular lead at the Royal Society of Medicine for registrars training in Intervention in London.
