I am Robert MacDonald and recently completed my BSc Honours with the Open University. I am currently completing my MSc Public Health with I self-funded. However I finally want to complete the puzzle and undertake a 2-year program in physician associate studies at Wolverhampton to become a PA in Emergency Medicine. I need as much help as I can financially as this is not a funded program and its in England, around 600 miles away from home so will have to start from scratch.
I was brought up in Glasgow but my family are from the Isles of Skye and Barra. I am bilingual and equally fluent in English and Scottish Gaelic as I had a bilingual upbringing. I am very enthusiastic about Gaelic revival as well as heath care and the National Health Service.
My academic interests are Systemic Human Physiology Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Regional Anatomy and Emergency Medicine/ Acute Care.
I currently work in Health and Social care, focusing mainly on dementia. I am registered with the Scottish Social Services Council as a supervisor within a care home
