Talk by Dr Martin Pucci, Clinical Senior Lecturer, University of Aberdeen and Author

Martin attended medical school in Aberdeen from 1973 to 1979.  After GP training, he worked at Ellon from 1981 to 2009 and was a founding member of G-DOCS (later G-MEDS) in 1996.  Martin was the GPVTS trainer at Ellon for 12 years and always involved with teaching there.  In 2009
he joined the Centre of Academic Primary Care at the University of Aberdeen, as a member of the teaching team and retired fully in 2016. He wrote a newspaper column on medical matters in the 1990’s and is currently writing for the Leopard Magazine on medical history which has always fascinated him along with scientific history and scientific biography. He has been involved in cruise ship lecturing (history of medicine) since 2014 which fits in with his love of travel.

All are welcome to come to the talk. A finger buffet will be available from 6.30 pm and tea and coffee will be available afterwards. Directions to the Suttie Centre on the Foresterhill Campus are available here.
