Hello, my name is Deborah Wilson and I am a Fellow and ordinary Board Member for the Faculty of Podiatric Medicine’s Executive Board for RCPSG. Professionally, I qualified as a podiatrist in 1997 and graduated with an MSc in Podiatry in 2014 from Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU). I am currently a lecturer in Podiatry (Clinical Academic) at Glasgow Caledonian University. I consider myself a lifelong learner and joined teaching in 2015 from an NHS background whereupon I developed my clinical expertise in diabetes, wound care and vascular conditions of the lower limb and foot. My current role is split between undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, and as a podiatric clinical specialist in diabetes. The consolidation of these two roles to one post is has fuelled my passion for podiatric education which has been enabled through a collaborative and strategic partnership between GCU and NHS Lanarkshire.
