Ian Mckenzie started his academic career in New Zealand studying physics with aspirations of one day becoming a nobel prize winner in this field. Fortunately he realized quite quickly that this was unlikely to happen and studied medicine at Auckland University Medical School on completion of his BSc. On qualifying he decided to pursue his passion for Aviation and joined the Royal Air Force in 1983. He eventually was appointed a consultant in the specialty of Aviation Medicine after completing a PhD in physiology at Imperial College, London. Sadly the fall of the Berlin wall had a big impact on the military and this specialty ceased to exist a few years later with the closure of the Institute of Aviation Medicine at Farnborough.
A stint of clinical work enabled Ian to re-qualify as a General Practitioner and gain experience of the NHS. However, remaining an academic at heart he chose to pursue a career in pharmaceutical medicine with Pfizer at their laboratories in Sandwich where he worked primarily in phase 2 and 3 clinical development. Most recently he has returned to General Practice and now works as a GP principal in East Kent.
He also maintains a consulting business with interests in training pharmaceutical sales representatives, designing and interpreting clinical trials data and managing regulatory interactions.
