Biography

Professor Al Dowie is the lead for ethics and law in the undergraduate Medical School, Dental School, and Nursing and Health Care School.

His work outside of University of Glasgow, present and past, includes roles with the medical Royal Colleges, NHS National Services ethics governance, NHS postgraduate ethics training, and General Medical Council guidance:

  • Associate Editor for History and Medical Humanities, Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh
  • Faculty of Dental Surgery membership exam training courses (Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow)
  • Royal College of Physicians (London) membership exam: PACES Scenario Editorial Committee
  • Chair, Expert Panel on Pre-implantation Genetic Testing (NHS Scotland National Services Division)
  • West Region training courses in ethics and law for all hospital registrars (NHS Education for Scotland)
  • General Medical Council, Confidentiality guidance: Task and Finish Group
  • Trustee, Board member, and Education Group member of the Institute of Medical Ethics
  • Founder, Community of Practice for Scottish medical schools ethics theme leaders under the Scottish Deans Medical Curriculum Group.

His first degree at the University of Glasgow is in the pure sciences (mathematics, natural philosophy). Later studies in the humanities, via a master’s degree in Princeton, led to a doctorate from the University of Edinburgh at the intersection of ethics, hermeneutics (interpretation theory, from the philosophy of knowledge, which is epistemology), and social anthropology. His PhD thesis on the interpretation of organisational culture comprises qualitative empirical research and is a study in the social construction of ethical practice. The ethnography was published in 2002.

His philosophical interests are in the areas of moral sense; moral motivation (especially in David Hume); the Scottish Enlightenment philosophers generally; the post-Newtonian constraints on the limits of knowledge; and the hermeneutical theory of Hans-Georg Gadamer.

His interests in medical ethics and law centre on confidentiality, consent, capacity; ethical reasoning and decision making in clinical practice across specialties; medical ethics education; and the history of medical ethics in Britain since John Gregory (1724–73) and Thomas Percival (1740–1804).

Professor Dowie is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.
