Jeremy's interest in research stems from his first three degrees, all from the University of Edinburgh. His intercalated BSc(Hons) in Experimental Pathology was supported by a competitive Wolfson Intercalated Award, and he achieved first class honours. He was awarded his MBChB with honours, having passed each year with distinction. Amongst other undergraduate academic prizes, Jeremy secured Cancer Research UK funding for his elective at The Royal Melbourne Hospital. During Core Training in Plastic Surgery in the East Midlands (North) deanery, he completed the 'ESSQ' MSc in Surgical Sciences, which was awarded with distinction. He is now part of the teaching faculty for the University of Edinburgh/RCSEd ESSQ programme. While in the second year of his Core Training, Jeremy successfully obtained an ST3 National Training Number in Plastic Surgery in the Yorkshire & the Humber deanery. He is now out of programme (OOPR) to pursue this current project for a DM degree. In addition to a variety of publications and over 60 national and international presentations to date, he co-edits 'Core Surgery Journal'. He was part of the team of six surgical core trainees who devised and launched this journal, which aims to provide young surgeons with practical, real-world knowledge.
Jeremy's project investigates the long-term outcomes after different types of surgical intervention for Dupuytren's disease. It is hoped that the data from this multi-centre study will be of use in planning future RCTs. The project is supervised by Professor Tim Davis and Professor Brigitte Scammell, and has been kindly funded by the British Society for Surgery of the Hand.
