Originally from Ireland, Tom obtained his medical degree from University College Cork in 2015. After completing his internship in 2016 he moved to Australia where he spent a number of years working in the specialties of general medicine, intensive care, orthopaedics and emergency medicine as well as gaining experience working with sporting teams.

In February 2022 Tom commenced his specialist training in Sport and Exercise Medicine at The Sports Clinic.

He is currently the club doctor for the Sydney University Football Club in the Shute Shield, having previously spent 2 years as the doctor for the Williamstown Football Club in the VFL. Tom has also completed a Masters in Sports Medicine through the University of Queensland in 2020.

He has a particular interest in rugby and soccer, concussion management, acute and chronic sporting injuries and the use of exercise to treat and prevent chronic disease.

Outside of work Tom loves to explore Sydney’s food scene, is a rugby fanatic and an avid but mediocre 5-a-side soccer player.
