He graduated from Edinburgh University in 1998, and then spent the next 5 years completing his basic surgical training in Edinburgh. He became a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2001 after passing his general surgical exams.
The next 5 years were spent as a Specialist Registrar on the North of Scotland Trauma and Orthopaedic Rotation. In 2007 he passed the Intercollegiate Trauma and Orthopaedic Exam and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
