He also has five years of experience working in Intensive Care, particularly in the area of post-cardiac surgery care. Dr. Gupta then went on to invest many years training in integrative medicine and was awarded a Fellowship of the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) in 2008 and a Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) in 2010.
