– Dr Tim Dickson.

Tim Dickson gained his medical degree from The University of Newcastle in 2004 and completed internship and basic training at the John Hunter Hospital, Newcastle and two years as an orthopaedic registrar for the Hunter New England Health Service. After being appointed to the Queensland Orthopaedic training scheme Tim worked for two years in various public and private Brisbane hospitals and successfully obtained his part 1 examination in surgical training.

During his four years as an orthopaedic registrar, Tim gained valuable knowledge and skills in the various orthopaedic specialties including trauma, sports medicine, spine, arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery, arthroplasty and paediatric orthopaedics. Despite this Tim decided to switch career paths to Radiology and relocate to Melbourne to refocus on diagnostic imaging across the range of medical specialties.

With his strong background in orthopaedics Tim has a particular interest in musculoskeletal imaging, sports medicine and radiological assisted non-operative treatment methods/minimally invasive therapies.

Tim completed his radiology training at The Alfred Hospital in 2015 during which time he completed a 6-month subspecialty rotation at Melbourne Radiology Clinic in addition to subspecialty rotations in trauma, thoracic and lung transplant imaging, body imaging and neuroradiology.

Tim currently holds a position as a visiting medical officer at the Alfred Hospital in MR imaging.

Tim is currently involved with a number of research projects with Dr George Koulouris and has completed a Masters of Medicine (Radiology)  through the University of Melbourne in the utility of MRI sequences in cervical spine clearance of trauma patients.
