Dr Alistair Dewar

Alistair was born in Caithness, escaping to the bright lights of Auld Reekie aged 15.

A burgeoning career as a linguist was quashed late into his fifth year at high school, and, much to his mother’s horror, the path to a career in medicine opened up instead – he’s never looked back since.

Al worked as an audio typist and receptionist in the Emergency Department at RIE as a medical student, and would frequently finish a shift on a Friday or Saturday evening, change into scrubs and practice his suturing or plastering (or, on one occasion, internal cardiac massage). He graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2007, and has stayed in south-east Scotland ever since, completing the Foundation Programme and Acute Common Care Stem before taking a training post in Emergency Medicine in 2012.

Al is currently in a two-year out-of-programme post as a clinical teaching fellow in EM, during which time he aims to complete an MD in his areas of interest – analysis of the nontechnical skills of pre-hospital and acute resuscitation teams, and in-situ simulation.

A son of the manse, he also enjoys the occasional squash game and middle-distance run, writing and arranging music and being wrapped round the little fingers of his two boys, Daniel and Luke.
