Dr McCurdie is a Consultant in Sport, Exercise & Rehabilitation Medicine with extensive experience in high performance sports medicine and musculoskeletal injury rehabilitation. He recently led the medical support for Team GB as their Chief Medical Officer at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Dr McCurdie qualified from King’s College Hospital, London in 1983 and joined the British Army where he trained in General Practice and worked in primary care for five years. After completing a full time Diploma in Sports Medicine in 1991 he decided to retrain as a Consultant in Rheumatology & Rehabilitation in order to pursue his interest in Sport & Exercise Medicine (SEM). Following a further six years of specialist training, he moved to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court, where he worked for 7 years as a Consultant specialising in the rehabilitation of sports & training injuries among Armed Forces personnel. Since leaving the Army in 2006, he has continued to work in SEM in a number of different settings.

Dr McCurdie has worked in elite sport for several years. As well as being the Chief Medical Officer for Team GB at 3 Olympic Games - Beijing in 2008, Vancouver in 2010 & London in 2012 – he has been a doctor with Team GB at 2 further Olympic Games (Sydney in 2000 & Athens in 2004) and with Team England at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester in 2002 and in Melbourne in 2006. He was the Medical Officer to the British Modern Pentathlon Association for 7 years, a member of the Chelsea FC medical team for 3 seasons, medical officer to the British Davis Cup tennis team and sports physician to The Royal Ballet School. He is currently a member of the medical team for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships & ATP World Tour Finals.

Until recently Dr McCurdie worked as a Consultant in Sport, Exercise & Rehabilitation Medicine at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre, Headley Court where, until its closure in late 2018 he led a multi-disciplinary rehabilitation team caring for Service personnel who had suffered lower limb injuries. He currently works with a multi-disciplinary team delivering specialist SEM services on-site for a major global investment banking firm in Fleet Street.

In addition, Dr McCurdie is co-founder and director of Remedy Healthcare, a new organisation delivering specialist multidisciplinary rehabilitation to those suffering complex musculoskeletal traumatic injuries & limb loss.

Dr McCurdie’s clinical interests include the management and rehabilitation of exercise related injury and the effective use of multi-disciplinary teams. He believes that this can only be achieved through accurate diagnosis and comprehensive treatment planning, with coordinated input from other therapists and the use of exercise-based rehabilitation programmes.

Away from work Dr McCurdie enjoys photography (and one day hopes to be able to take it more seriously).
