Dr Attila Molnar

MD FRACP Paediatrics Neonatology
Paediatrician

Dr Attila Molnar’s paediatric experience is very broad. He commenced his medical studies and career in Switzerland, completing his first qualification in medicine in 2002, and completing his training in General Paediatrics (2010), Neonatology (2013) and Intensive Care (2015). He worked in hospital settings before partnering with other practitioners to establish a first of its kind private paediatric emergency clinic and primary care service in Zurich called Swiss Medi Kids.

Since settling in Australia in 2016, Dr Molnar has furthered his studies in paediatrics and neonatology. This includes time spent working in paediatric intensive care at the Children’s Hospital in Randwick, Sydney, paediatric emergency and adult emergency at The Prince Charles Hospital, and neonatal intensive care at The Mater Hospital, both in Brisbane.

As part of the Paeds in a Pod team, Dr Molnar provides specialist neonatal care to babies born early, with low birth weight or who have a medical condition which requires specialised treatment. He draws on his depth of knowledge and experience in emergency and acute care settings to provide the best possible care and advice.

Dr Attila has long been fascinated with children’s natural growth and development and, despite his years in the medical profession, remains in awe of the miracle of nature. He is amazed by children’s resilience and older children’s honesty and bravery when it comes to their treatment and care.

As a father of two children, Dr Attila knows the challenges that parenting can bring. With him and his wife leading the way, his family enjoys a very active life and takes great pleasure from participating in a range of different sports.

Dr Attila is fluent in seven languages – English, German, Hungarian, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Italian– and also has some oral and written skills in, Latin, Arabic, Farsi and Turkish.
