Dr Chavy Arora is a General Practice Advanced Trainee in Melbourne, Australia and currently reading for the MSt Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford. She completed her MBBS (Hons) at Monash University in 2015 and her BMedSc (Hons) at the Oxford Uehiro Centre in 2014. She holds postgraduate clinical qualifications in obstetrics (Dip Obstetrics) and paediatrics (Dip Child Health).
Chavy has a particular interest in public health ethics, having focused her honours dissertation in 2014 on the ethics of resource allocation in neonatal intensive care, completed an internship at the World Health Organisation Global Health Ethics Unit in 2015 and a BSc in Development and Economics at the University of London (LSE) in 2019. Chavy’s masters dissertation explores the moral and public health implications of the ‘post-truth’ era, particularly focusing on its effects on vaccine uptake. She hopes this analysis will shed some light on strategies to promote health literacy (and counter misinformation) in clinical practice.
