Professional Background

 

MBBS (HONS)
I am a graduate of Monash University where I attained a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery with Honours.  Since then, I worked in general medicine and surgery at the Alfred Hospital before training as an obstetrician/gynaecologist.  
 
FRANZCOG
I undertook this specialist obstetrician/gynaecologist training at the Royal Womens' Hospital and Mercy Hospitals in Melbourne, as well as in rural areas of Ballarat and Albury/Wodonga.  During this training, I developed a passion for reproductive endocrinology and infertility and decided to undertake the three years further training and study to become a sub-specialist in this area.
 
MASTERS OF REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE
I have completed a masters degree in reproductive Medicine through the University of New South Wales.   
 
CREI
I am one of 62 sub-specialists in Australia and New Zealand to hold the CREI qualification.  CREI is the only subspecialist qualification in infertility and reproductive endocrinology that is recognised in Australia.   It involves three years of extra training in a wide range of areas related to infertility, such as endocrine disorders, male infertility and urology, reproductive surgery, genetics, embryology, statistics and epidemiology, and adolescent reproductive system disorders.   
 
The final steps are examinations that require an extensive and cutting edge level of knowledge of all of these areas.  As a CREI subspecialist I am therefore able to provide you with the best and most up to date management of your fertility and reproductive concerns.
