The MacGillivray Academic Centre consists of a conference room, two seminar rooms, two tutorial rooms and a computer room. It is housed within Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, which is most easily accessed when entering the hospital from Cornhill Road.
It was developed as a joint enterprise between the University of Aberdeen, School of Medicine and Dentistry, and the Grampian University Hospital NHS Trust, with generous contributions from a number of other sources, including the Special Nursery trust. The facility provides future doctors and midwives, as well as current staff, with the best and most up-to-date support for their continuing education.
Opened on November 16 1999, the facility is named after the late Professor Emeritus Ian MacGillivray, former Head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, who made major clinical and scientific contributions to our understanding of pregnancy hypertension and twin pregnancy, as well as developing undergraduate and postgraduate education in Aberdeen.
