An award named after Professor Stuart Baird, the past Dean of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow Faculty of Podiatric Medicine, has been awarded to student Fay Wallace.

The Professor Baird Award has been running since 2017 and is in recognition of the best overall podiatry student at Glasgow Caledonian University.

On receiving the award, Fay said:

“I am very grateful and proud to receive the Professor Baird Award in Association with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons for the best overall student. It means a great deal to me and was a memorable way to sign off my four years as a university student. I look forward to exploring the different opportunities the College has to offer as a newly qualified podiatrist.

“Thank you very much again. I am honoured to be awarded this prize as a final year student.”

Professor Stuart Baird is past Dean of the Faculty of Podiatric Medicine at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, an Emeritus Professor at Glasgow Caledonian University, and an Adjunct Professor at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia.

Prior to his retirement, Professor Baird was Professor of Podiatric Medicine at Glasgow Caledonian University and had a special interest in diabetes and its effects on the lower limb and foot. As well as being an academic, he remained clinically active within the multidisciplinary team at the Diabetic Foot Clinic, Centre for Diabetes and Metabolism, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow.

Professor Baird has been in an academic role for over 40 years and has worked in several academic institutions in the UK and abroad before returning to Glasgow Caledonian University in 1995. He has delivered lectures and programmes on the management of the diabetic foot disease in India, the Middle East, Africa and the Far East. He is respected nationally and internationally in the field of diabetes and diabetic foot disease and is held in high esteem by his profession and his peers for his commitment to Podiatric Medicine in the UK and internationally.
