During her degree, she was awarded a stipend to evaluate long-term outcomes for ‘Early Head Start’, a federally funded community-based programme for underserved families with young children. She has also conducted quality improvement research in Boston Children’s Hospital, leading to multiple publications.
Preety completed her junior doctor training in London, during which she received deanery prizes for leadership and peer representation.
