After graduating from the Manipal Academy of Higher Education in India Babbin came to the UK to pursue surgical training.

These surgical posts were also part of the Oxford Deanery basic surgical training programme.
Following completion of the MRCS from the Royal College of Surgeons in England in 2005, he undertook research in 4D ultrasound in percutaneous surgery at St George’s Hospital and attained the MD (Res) degree. During this time he actively took part in the undergraduate teaching programme for medical and allied sciences students.
He was competitively appointed to the South Thames urology Higher Surgical Training programme in 2008 and worked towards achieving urological core training, then sub-specialist training in pelvic uro-oncology. He was awarded the FRCS Urol and was included on the GMC’s specialist register in 2012/2013.
In 2014 he was appointed as the first Royal College of Surgeons of England pelvic uro-oncology fellow at Leeds Teaching Hospitals, where he got additional training in robotic radical prostatectomies and open radical cystectomy and urinary diversion.
He also takes an active interest in teaching and training undergraduate medical students and urology specialist trainees.
