Dr Rank qualified at University College London and completed his psychiatric training in Brighton. During his training, he was lucky enough to have 6 months off and he used this time to cycle from the UK to Turkey. He remains a keen cyclist and is particularly conscious of the interplay between physical and mental health. He was appointed as an NHS Consultant in Sussex in 2006. He started working at The Priory, Brighton and Hove in 2007 and since March 2010 he has worked full time at the Priory. His interests are anxiety, depression, OCD and bipolar illness.
