MBChB 2000, MRCP, MRCGP, DCH, dip Dermatology
I graduated in 2000 from The University Of Glasgow and initially worked in Australia in accident and emergency. Having decided on a career in dermatology, I trained as a physician in Cambridge before returning to Glasgow. Although I continued to be interested in dermatology, I realised that in order to really treat any condition it is more satisfying if you can influence other aspects of a patient's life and health which play a part in their problems. General practice was the solution for me.
