Thomas Ind was educated at St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College, University of London. He qualified in 1989 and started specialising in gynaecology immediately after his registration year. Mr Ind started his specialist training at St Bartholomew's Hospital. After two years he took a short break in clinical practice to study for a doctoral thesis in which he developed an assay for placental alkaline phosphatase and assessed its use as a tumour marker. The thesis was accepted by the University of London in 1994.
His clinical training continued at Queen Charlotte's Hospital, Hillingdon Hospital, Watford Hospital, St George Hospital (Sydney, Australia), and St Mary's Hospital in London. During this period he developed interests in major gynaecological surgery, cancers and keyhole surgery.
He was admitted as a member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) in 1995 and subsequently a Fellow. After becoming a specialist he completed sub-specialist training in gynaecological oncology at St Bartholomew's Hospital and The Royal Marsden. His final jobs as a resident doctor were at the Chelsea and Westminster, and Hammersmith Hospitals in London.
In addition to his medical degree (MBBS), doctorate (MD), and fellowship to the Royal College of Obstetricans and Gynaecologists (FRCOG), Mr Ind holds a number of other registrations and certificates. He is registered as a specialist in gynaecology and sub-specialist in gynaecological oncology by the General Medical Council.
