About me

Oliver Young undertook his undergraduate medical training at the University of Edinburgh qualifying in 1999. During his basic surgical training he also worked in Northampton and Christchurch, New Zealand. His subsequent surgical training was in Edinburgh with placements in both Dundee and Glasgow. He undertook two years of post graduate research at the Edinburgh Breast Unit under the supervision of Professor Mike Dixon. He has been a consultant in the Edinburgh Breast Unit since 2011 where he is now Clinical Director and works with a team of seven other consultants collectively treating over 900 new breast cancers annually. He manages a significant number of new cancers detected via the Scottish Breast Screening Programme. He has a very keen interest in neoadjuvant endocrine therapy and subsequent breast conservation surgery employing both well-established and novel oncoplastic techniques. He works very closely with other disciplines including pathology, radiology, oncology and clinical genetics. He currently chairs the Quality Improvement Team for the breast unit and has a keen interest in the safe streamlining and improvement of patient care pathways.
