Dr Brett WELLS
PhD (Astronomy & Astrophysics)(ANU)
Dr Wells is a specialist anaesthetist in Sydney, Australia; this webportal is for his own patients to complete preoperative health surveys prior to their surgery.
Dr Wells was originally an Astrophysicist having completed his PhD in Astronomy & Astrophysics at Mount Stromlo Observatory located at the Australian National University, this also involved work at IPAC, Caltech in the United States as well as the Australia Telescope National Facility, Sydney. He afterwards spent time in France as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale, Universite de Paris-Sud. His original degree was in Aerospace Engineering.
However, after some formative experiences, he returned to study in the graduate program in Medicine at the University of Sydney, which he completed in 2001, graduating with the highest level of Honors and the K.C.T Rawle Surgical Prize. During his studies he spent some time visiting and studying at Space Medicine at UTMB and the University of Oxford. After graduation, Dr Wells spent several years as a house doctor at the Royal North Shore Hospital until he was accepted into the speciality training program for Anaesthesia at St George Public Hospital. This program required a commitment of an additional five years of postgraduate training to qualify as a specialist in Anaesthesia. His project on video laryngoscopes that formed part of his Fellowship may be of interest to some readers.
Dr Wells previously had a mix of public and private appointments, but now works exclusively in private hospitals throughout Sydney with a selected range of surgeons, obstetricians and ophthalmologists.
I look forward to meeting you.
