EMG-Health | Episode 104
This week, Jonathan’s guest is Leslie Moffat, a prominent and now retired Urologist. Moffat discusses how he got into the field of urology and also reveals the reasons as to why he retired when he was 62. Delving into the history of patient transportation in war, Moffat reminisces about his time in Kyiv, Ukraine, and the people that he met there. He further discusses how males with family members who have had breast cancer could be at a higher risk of getting prostate cancer.
Leslie Moffat earned his Bachelor’s and medical degrees from the University of Edinburgh, UK. Moffat also has a Master’s degree in business administration in healthcare management from Stirling University, UK. He also received fellowships from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSED), American College of Surgeons (ACS), and the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (RCPE).
For 28 years, Moffat was a consultant in urological surgery at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, UK, and an Honorary Senior Lecture at the Aberdeen University, authoring over 100 publications and two books. He also co-founded Prostate Cancer UK, and spent a number of years reviewing medical journals. Now, he is the Justice of the Peace in Aberdeen and is a member of the Judicial Training Committee.
Although a skilled urologist, Moffat has talents elsewhere. He speaks French, some Italian, and is now mastering German. Currently, he is rehearsing the operative role of Dr Bartolo in The Marriage of Figaro, which will be performed in a country house in Edinburgh.
