As an undergraduate, she worked also in New York and California in translational research methods. Elective was spent in Salvador da Bahia in Brazil investigating operative emergencies, beautiful beaches and the fascinating local culture.

She trained on the prestigious Percivall Pott rotation and close to completion was appointed as the senior revision hip fellow, working with John Nolan and Jim Wimhurst in Norwich. Fellowships within fellowship were undertaken in Germany with Professor MIchael Raschke, Head of AO and in Denmark with Professor Kjeld Sobelle who pioneered minimally invasive periacetabular osteotomy. Homa’s happiest year was as the pelvic and acetabular fellow at Barts Health. She went on to take up her first substantive consultant post with amazing colleagues in Newcastle.
