Dr. Colin McCord is a technical advisor to AMDD. He served on the faculty at Columbia University and was director of cardiac surgery at St. Luke's Hospital in New York until 1971. From 1971 to 1987 he worked full time as a surgeon and director of health programs in Bangladesh, India, and Mozambique, much of this time in rural districts. He was the director of surgery at the Central Hospital in Maputo, Mozambique from 1983 to 1987.

In 1998, he retired from Columbia and returned to India as a surgeon and general physician at the hospital of the Comprehensive Rural Health Project in Jamkhed, Maharashtra. In 2002 and 2003 he was an assistant commissioner in the New York City Department of Health. Since 2004 he has been semi-retired, but returns frequently to Africa to work with surgical programs.
