I am a veterinary surgeon who specialises in the delivery of veterinary education.  I graduated from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in 1984. 

My career spans almost 40 years during which time I have been involved in many aspects of the veterinary profession.  My clinical experience has encompassed mixed general practice with a production animal bias, through to specialist practice in veterinary neurology leading the neurology team at the Small Animal Hospital, University of Glasgow. 

I have also spent time as a postgraduate research student and post-doc working on myelination of the central nervous system.  Laterally, I have led veterinary education for the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Glasgow and more recently for SRUC. 

Externally, I have roles with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons where I am deputy convener of the Primary Qualifications Sub-Committee (PQSC) and an experienced member of the Accreditation Visitor panel.  I have also led accreditation for other international Public Statutory Regulatory Bodies (PSRBs) of international schools of veterinary medicine.
