Adam Boggon

All Disciplines Award - MPH in Health Management at Harvard University

Adam is a psychiatry trainee in London and an honorary lecturer at UCL. He grew up in West Fife playing youth professional football and spent time at NASA through the Scottish Space School. He studied Medicine at St Andrews (BSc), Aberdeen (MBChB), and in East Africa with the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (DTM&H) – winning national medals and awards for medical debating, steeplechase, and Scottish traditional singing. He’s practiced in Edinburgh, Inverness, Orkney, London, and at the MRC-Unit The Gambia. During the Covid-19 pandemic he worked in acute medicine and intensive care, helped establish an early vaccination centre, and coordinated the redeployment of over 300 doctors and medical students at the Royal Free Hospital. He believes decisive, collaborative clinician leadership is integral to the future of the NHS and the morale of its workforce. He will undertake a MPH in Health Management at Harvard.

Adam’s writing has been shortlisted for the John Byrne Award, the Lancet Wakley Prize and won the Mountaineering Scotland mountain writing competition. He looks forward to exploring the US national parks in his fell running shoes and chatting enthusiastically to strangers.
