He was trained through the Austin Hospital and spent 18 months overseas in Ontario at the University College Hospital (UCH) in Canada.

In addition, he has been involved in the setup and coordination of the Master of Perioperative Medicine run through Monash University. He has been involved in coordinating postgraduate units for Monash University and was the lead author on several university documents for unit POM5001 – Perioperative Medical Care for the Cardiac Patient.

He has echocardiographic qualifications and has a recognised fellowship in cardiothoracic anaesthesia and cardiothoracic intensive care (Diplomate of the National Board of Echocardiography). His areas of interest include high risk anaesthesia and perioperative medicine (cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, major thoracic surgery and abdominal vascular procedures), medical education and airway teaching.

He is a regular speaker at anaesthesia conferences and has publications in the medical literature for emergency medicine, anaesthesia, cardiac anaesthesia and intensive care journals.
