Dr Adam Gordon awarded Archibald Pitcairne Medal

 

We are delighted to announce that Dr Adam Gordon from the Division of Medical Sciences and Graduate Entry Medicine has been awarded the Archibald Pitcairne Medal by the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh on Wednesday, 15 March 2017 for his Keynote Lecture on "Keeping Strong:  rehabilitation - in hospital or at home".  

The talk outlined some of the difficulties in understanding which older patients benefit most from rehabilitation.  He also highlighted the work from the MRC/ARUK Centre for Musculoskeletal Research, a collaboration between Nottingham and Birmingham Universities explaining how this pioneering work will help move forward our understanding of rehabilitation in older people.

Adam was an invited speaker as part of a symposium attended by about 200 fellows and members of the Royal College and followed on webstream by 31 countries.
