Mr Dudderidge completed urological cancer and minimally invasive and robotic surgery fellowships at Imperial College London Hospital NHS Trust and Royal Marsden Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. He subsequently worked as a locum consultant there prior to taking up his post at Southampton. His training has also included a two year research period as Lecturer in Molecular Uro-Pathology which led to two masters degrees.
