Dr Peter Snelling
Peter’s understanding of general paediatrics and acute care is in-depth. He is compassionate and thoughtful as he provides complete care for children from birth through to their final years of school.
He completed a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry at the University of Queensland in 2002. He continued his studies there and graduated from his Medical degree in 2006, with Honours. He completed his Fellowship in General Paediatrics with the Royal Australia College of Physicians in 2015 and continues his dual training in Paediatric Emergency Medicine.
Peter trained at Brisbane’s Mater Children’s Hospital and Royal Children’s Hospital and finished his training with a Senior Registrar role at Nambour General Hospital. He will be undertaking a Paediatric Emergency Fellowship position at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in 2016.
Peter is currently completing a Masters in Public Health and Tropical Medicine. This is driven by his longstanding personal interest in administering medical care to those living in less fortunate global areas, with first hand experience in Bangladesh and Nepal. He also fosters the belief that prevention is better than cure and aims to keep children well and out of hospital.
Peter has a young family of his own and enjoys family camping trips.
