Originally from Northern Ireland, he graduated in 2011, with his Medical Degree (MB BCh BAO) from Queen’s University Belfast. After completion of his medical elective and degree, his career goals were firmly set to a career in Reproductive Medicine.
He then completed his Foundation Programme training in The East of Scotland Deanery. After this he returned to Northern Ireland for a period of time to work in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in The Royal Jubilee Maternity Hospital and Belfast City Hospital.
Dr Campbell then commenced his formal training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in The Northern Deanery in August 2014. He worked for a year in The University Hospital of North Durham, two years in The Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle, four months of which were spent in The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, a Gynaecological Oncology Specialist Centre and just prior to commencement of his current role in The University of Dundee, time was spent back in The University Hospital of North Durham.
While in the Newcastle area he was exposed to a strong research presence within the speciality of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and from there, a real aptitude and interest in research began. This has resulted in a career move to The University of Dundee and back The East of Scotland Deanery to cement his pathway to a career in Clinical and Academic Reproductive Medicine.
Dr Campbell is the junior Doctor representative of Scotland for The British Society of Biopsychosocial Obstetrics and Gynaecology, a role he has taken with him from The Northern Deanery. BSBOG’s objective is to advance the education of the general public, medical and health professionals by encouraging the development of a better understanding and improved management of the bio-psychosocial problems associated with women and men’s health. BSBOG is a specialist society of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
Dr Campbell is working alongside a unique combination of scientific and clinical academic with an andrology and assisted reproduction translational research focus - Professor Christopher Barratt, Dr Sarah Martins Da Silva as well as clinicians and basic scientists affiliated with the taught MSc in Human Clinical Embryology and Assisted conception – Dr Vanessa Kay, Dr Steven Gellatly, Dr. Therishnee Moodley and Dr Sean Brown.
In joining this research active group, he will be helping to address fundamental questions in andrology and subfertility and will engage in research programmes within Reproductive and Developmental Biology (Professor Christopher Barratt) or collaborating units across the University, including Drug Discovery and National Phenotypic Screening Centre (School of Life Sciences).
He has joined at an exciting time as male infertility begins to take centre stage in the political and research agenda.
