BiographyDavid McGill qualified in medicine from the University of Aberdeen in 1998 and began his training in general surgery and orthopaedics in Aberdeen. He then developed his interest in plastic surgery after moving to Edinburgh, and at this time gained his membership exam in surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. Following this he went to the Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit in Glasgow, where he completed a medical doctorate (MD) with clinical research in laser surgery and burns. This research has been widely published in medical literature and presented both nationally and internationally.
His higher surgical training took place in plastic surgery units in Birmingham, Edinburgh and finally Glasgow, where he received specialist training in breast reconstruction, reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. At the end of this he passed the intercollegiate Fellowship exam in Plastic Surgery and was then appointed as a Consultant in the internationally-renowned Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit.
