"I aim to positively impact the quality of life of all patients and their families through excellent clinical practice and research within a collaborative and multidisciplinary environment."
The desire to contribute to the community and to be able to immediately impact on the lives of individuals saw Jeremy change career paths from environmental scientist, working in Australia, the UK and Thailand, to radiation oncologist.
Jeremy initially studied medicine at the University of Notre Dame in Fremantle. Following graduation, he gained experience across Australia in large metropolitan hospitals and smaller regional centres which gave him greater exposure to radiation oncology departments and spurred on his interest to specialise in this discipline.
His specialist training in radiation oncology began in Queensland before he moved back to his home town of Perth in 2013 to continue training at Sir Charles Gairdner and Fiona Stanley hospitals. On completion of this training, Jeremy obtained a fellowship with GenesisCare focusing on stereotactic body radiation therapy – a highly technical technique.
Jeremy is active in clinical research, and has publications on melanoma and the use of stereotactic radiosurgery in the treatment of brain metastases. His ongoing research projects include the use of stereotactic body radiation therapy in lung cancer and benign brain conditions. He is a member of the TransTasman Radiation Oncology Group (TROG) and the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO).
Jeremy is experienced in treating multiple tumour types and has a particular interest in central nervous system, urogenitaland lung cancers. He regularly participates in multidisciplinary team meetings and believes in a holistic approach to patient care.
