Description

Campbell graduated in medicine from the University of Glasgow in 1952 and travelled to Canada to start his training in anaesthesia. He returned to Glasgow in 1956 and gained more training in anaesthesia at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary and Stobhill Hospital. He became Lecturer in Anaesthesia at the University of Glasgow in 1960, eventually being appointed to Chair of Anaesthesia in 1976.
