Dr. Abhra Chandra Chowdhury
Rheumatologist, Durgapur

MBBS, MD, DM

I have completed my MBBS from Calcutta National Medical College. Following MBBS I have done DNB Medicine from the prestigious institute Christian Medical College , Vellore. After obtaining post graduation in medicine , I have spent one year at the Department of Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology at CMC Vellore under the supervision of Prof. Debasish Danda . Subsequently, I got selected for DM Rheumatology course at one of the most premier institutes of the country - Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS),Lucknow. There I had the opportunity to work under Prof Ramnath Misra and Prof Amita Aggarwal who have trained some of the best rheumatologists in the country and abroad.

During my years at CMC Vellore and SGPGIMS Lucknow, I have gained vast experience in the management of rheumatic diseases. I have been trained in musculoskeletal ultrasound as well as MRI.

I Had also got the prestigious APLAR fellowship .During this fellowship I have been trained in pediatric rheumatology specifically pediatric musculoskeletal ultrasound under Dr Madeleine Rooney who is one of the most noted pediatric rheumatologists in UK.

Rheumatology is a relatively newer subspecialty of medicine. The burden of rheumatic diseases is huge and often they lead to disability or mortality at a relatively young age. Awareness about management of rheumatic diseases is lacking amongst patients as well as general physicians. My goal is to develop this specialty in west Bengal and jharkhand and improve the management of patients with rheumatic diseases
