    About

    Mr Russ Jeffers obtained his primary medical degree (MBChB) while pursuing his studies at Dundee University. After that, his house jobs were in Dundee and Perth. His basic surgical training was done during work in Weymouth, Dorchester, Exeter, Glasgow and Ayr. During this period, he also obtained the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (MRCSEd).

    He got trained as a specialist in orthopaedics and trauma when he was in Registrar posts in Dumfries and Leeds. Then he was appointed as a Specialist Registrar on the Orthopaedic rotation in Yorkshire. Thereafter, Russ completed the Intercollegiate Specialist qualification in Trauma and Orthopaedics (FRCSEd Orth).

    Russ undertook his sub-specialist training in Hand, Wrist and Elbow Surgery in a nationally awarded Interface Orthoplastic Hand Fellowship in Manchester, Salford and Wrightington. This was the perfect opportunity for him to get detailed training in both the orthopaedic and plastic surgery aspects of hand surgery. This was followed by an Upper Limb (shoulder elbow) and Hand Fellowship at Royal Derby Hospital and the Pulvertaft Hand Centre.

    Russ was recognised by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh as a top-quality surgical trainer. He was elected as a Member of the Faculty of Surgical Trainers (MFSTEd).

    He is proud to have attained the European Diploma in Hand Surgery (Eur Dip Hand Surg) qualification. He was awarded by the Federation of European Societies for Surgery of the Hand (FESSH) and possess a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDipClinEducation).

    Russ is an active full member in the British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH) where he is an Examiner for the Diploma in Hand Surgery. He is Faculty on the BSSH Masterclass Instructional Cadaveric Courses, a mentor to new hand surgery consultant and teaches on a number of courses recognised and sponsored by the BSSH, BAPRAS and Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and England.
