Dr Itunuoluwa Johnson

BSc. Human genetics, MBBS ( UCL) 2011 MRCP, MRCGP, DFSRH


I completed my medical degree at University College London in 2011 and also hold a Bachelor’s degree in Human Genetics from the same institution. Having previously completed post-graduate training in core internal medicine and obtained membership of the Royal College of Physicians, I decided to retrain as a GP which I completed with the West Hertfordshire Scheme. I love being a GP and partnering with patients to provide holistic care. I have additional clinical interests in hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular medicine as well as in reproductive and sexual health. I am also passionate about evidence-based medicine delivered with excellence and the equipping of future physicians to fulfil this task. Therefore, during my career, I have also been involved in medical education and medical research. Outside of work, I enjoy being a mum and I like to travel, sing & paint.
