The contribution made to the Caithness community by former surgeon Pradip Datta will be marked this weekend.
A celebration of his life will be held at Wick St Fergus Church at 1pm on Saturday June 4.
It will be livestreamed and many surgeons worldwide, trained by Pradip, are expected to view the service.
The Kolkata-born surgeon, who died earlier this year aged 81, spent more than two decades as a consultant at Bignold Hospital and then Caithness General.
At Saturday’s celebration, one of the speakers will be retired professor of surgery at Aberdeen, John Duncan.
Sandip Datta, Pradip’s son said: “Professor Duncan will talk about my dad’s work as a surgical trainer as well as an Edinburgh Royal College of Surgeons council member and secretary.
“Professor Rajamiyer Venkateswaran will talk about how my dad was an inspirational teacher and then Roy Mackenzie from Wick, a friend and great squash rival, will give an insight into his sporting life. I will then give a speech.
“There will be a moment of reflection with pictures of my dad and some music. There also will be a book of condolence for people to sign.
“Everyone is invited for some light refreshment to Mackays Hotel afterwards, just to share some memories, and all donations that are raised at the ceremony will go to the Stroke Association.”
Pradip attended medical school in India and taught anatomy there for three years before moving to the UK in 1967 to train as a surgeon.
Together with his wife Swati, he successfully applied for a post in Caithness and soon became immersed in the community.
Over 40 years he showed himself to be an outstanding squash player, winning a clutch of trophies at Wick Squash Club.
In 2008, Pradip was made an MBE for his work in advancing the careers of doctors throughout the world. He was also a past secretary of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
