Ross qualified from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) in 2005 with a 1st class Honors degree in Osteopathic Medicine, Diploma in Osteopathy and Diploma in Naturopathy; after which time he returned to his home town of Aberdeen to work within and develop an existing busy multidisciplinary clinic. From the start of his undergraduate training, Ross developed a deep interest in his patients’ experience of pain. This motivated him to engage in further academic activity at Kings College London, where he became the first registered osteopath worldwide to complete the award winning MSc Pain: Science and Society programme in 2008.
During his postgraduate studies Ross returned to the British College of Osteopathic Medicine, where he held the post of Module leader for the Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and X-ray syllabus for 3rd and 4th year students, in addition to supervising students in the BCOM Teaching Clinic and tutoring Osteopathic Technique. Committed to Osteopathic Research Ross has supervised many student final year dissertations and developed student research for peer review publication. His academic interests include the neurophysiological mechanisms of manual therapy, musculoskeletal dysfunction and the neurobiology of chronic pain.
