Dr David Rampton is a Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist at Barts and the London NHS Trust, and a Reader in Gastroenterology at St Bartholomews & The Royal London School of Medicine & Dentistry, Queen Mary's, University of London, England.

Dr Rampton's undergraduate training was at Oxford University and University College Hospital. He then worked at various hospitals in or near London before moving to his present post in 1989.

His main research interests relate to the pathogenesis and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease.

What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
Largely by accident. I enjoyed all the specialities I rotated through as a junior generalist trainee. A gastroenterology higher training post became vacant at an appropriate time and I have never regretted getting it.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Impossible to decide: too many excellent ones. I've also learnt a lot from a tiny minority whose methods I admired less wholeheartedly.
Which research paper influenced you the most?
Again, impossible to decide. Every year there are several even within my own subspecialty that have a major impact on how I practice.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
"We shall find life tolerable once we have consented to be always ill at ease." (Flaubert)
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
As at job interviews, this question is not answerable truthfully.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
To work in a health service that delivers to patients what modern medicine can provide, or even half of what politicians promise.
What is your greatest regret?
Not fulfilling that ambition.
How do you relax?
Staring into crystal clear water in pursuit of fish; classical music.
What is your favorite sport?
After fly-fishing, cricket.
What is your best place in the world?
London, and the West Coast of Scotland.
What is your favorite film?
Impossible to choose: "La Peau Douce", "Amadeus", "Don Giovanni" (Losey), "Electra", and "High Noon" are each strong candidates in their own ways.
What car do you drive?
None.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
My CD player.
What book are you reading at the moment?
"The Letters of Abelard and Heloise".
Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
I couldn't resist the persuasiveness of Roy Pounder; and it could prove an extremely helpful and enjoyable venture.
