Explorer Physician
Writer
Mike Stroud qualified as a doctor in 1979 and then spent 10 years in hospital medicine interspersed with prolonged periods travelling around the world on expeditions. He then left mainstream medical practice to undertake six years of research on human performance at environmental extremes which led to him becoming the Chief Scientist at the UK Government ‘Centre for Human Sciences’. During this period, he continued to go on expeditions which included the first unsupported crossing of Antarctica on foot which he completed with Sir Ranulph Fiennes in 1993. This resulted in the award of both the OBE for ‘Human Endeavour & Services to Charity’ and the Polar Medal for ‘Services to Polar exploration’.

In the late 1990s Mike returned to hospital medicine in Southampton where he is now a Professor in Medicine & Nutrition and a Consultant Gastroenterologist. Nevertheless, he has continued to undertake gruelling challenges in extreme environments. During 2016/17 he has been climbing some of the highest mountains on every continent helping Sir Ranulph in his ‘Global challenge’ to become the first man ever to have climbed the highest summits on all seven continents and to have crossed both polar regions.
