Dr Sameer Mihrshahi
I completed my undergraduate medical degree with Honours at the University of Sydney in 1997, and trained in General Surgery in Newcastle and Sydney obtaining my Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) in 2005.
I then completed 2 years of Fellowship training in Upper Gastrointestinal and HPB Surgery, firstly at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, and was then awarded the Lister Fellowship in Pancreaticobiliary Surgery at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
Despite the weather, I enjoyed my time in the UK, and stayed on after my Fellowship for 4 years in consultant practice firstly in Surrey and then in Bristol, in Upper GI and HPB surgery.
I relocated back to Sydney in 2010, starting at Macquarie University Hospital in 2011, was appointed a Visiting Medical Officer (VMO) at Ryde Hospital in 2012 and Mona Vale Hospital in 2014, and with Mona Vale Hospital's recent closure, the new Northern Beaches Hospital.
I am currently the Clinical Discipline Head for Upper Gastrointestinal & General Surgery at Macquarie University Hospital.
