I was born and educated in the North of Ireland. I graduated in Medicine from Queens University Belfast. My basic specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology was in Northern Ireland. During my higher specialist training, I completed two years of fulltime research under the supervision of Professor Jim Dornan at the Royal Maternity Hospital in Belfast. My research work into ultrasound in pregnancy produced the sentinel report on the use of ultrasound in the apparent low-risk pregnancy.
I have published numerous other research papers in major scientific and peer-reviewed journals. Amongst others, I was first author in papers published in The Lancet in Britain and the Journal of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. This research work resulted in the higher degree of Doctor of Medicine, MD.
After my higher specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, I was successful in attaining an RCOG Subspecialty training post in Maternal-Fetal-Medicine. My subspecialty training was in Belfast and in Cape Town, South Africa. I am one of only two RCOG trained Subspecialists in Maternal-Fetal-Medicine in Cork.
Subspecialists in Maternal-Fetal-Medicine have specialist training in performing and interpreting detailed fetal ultrasound scans in the first, second and third trimester. They are proficient in invasive fetal procedures like amniocentesis and are expert in managing the twin and triplet pregnancy.
Subspecialists are qualified to look after mothers with complex pregancies and medical conditions. Examples of these conditions are diabetes and patients with a history of blood clotting disorders
I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, London and a member of the Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists at the Royal College of Physicians, Ireland
I was appointed to the Erinville hospital as a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist and Clinical Senior Lecturer in UCC in October 2006.
I have worked as a Gyne Consultant in CUMH since it opened in 2007.
At CUMH I am part of the Perinatal Medicine Team with responsibility for the High-Risk Clinic, and Fetal Medicine Clinic. I remain actively involved in research and supervise MD research students in Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
During UCC’s term time, I look forward to my weekly tutorial with the fourth year medical students. One of my proudest accolades was being awarded best Consultant teacher in Obstetrics and Gynaecology by the fourth year medical students at UCC
I also have a general gynaecological clinic in CUMH. I welcome private referrals for pre-pregnancy discussion, prenatal diagnosis, antenatal ultrasound scans, antenatal care and private birth and general gynaecology
I am married to Emma and we have four children.
In my limited spare time, I play golf – badly!
