Michael started his career as a physiotherapist, graduating with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the University of Queensland in 2000, and worked for 10 years at The Prince Charles Hospital primarily in the fields of Cardiorespiratory and Orthopaedics. During this time, he completed a Master of Business Administration at the University of Queensland in 2007, where he was awarded the Top MBA prize for the highest overall achievement in the program, and was subsequently placed on the Dean’s Honour Roll. He concurrently completed a Master of Philosophy (in the field of Physiotherapy), graduating from the University of Queensland in 2008.
Michael then went on to complete his medical degree at the University of Queensland, graduating in 2011 with first class honours, and was awarded the Lilian Cooper Prize for highest overall achievement during the program, as well as the Dr Elaine Katte Prize in Medicine and the AMA Memorial Prize. Following completion of his post-graduate training in Radiology at the Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital, he began consulting with Qscan Radiology Clinics in 2019, where he has since completed a musculoskeletal fellowship. He has a particular interest in both the diagnostic and interventional aspects of musculoskeletal radiology.
