Dr David Tickell

Dr David Tickell trained at the University of Melbourne and then specialised at Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne.  He completed the end of his specialty training in Albury-Wodonga then moved to Malawi Africa for his first consultant position, before returning to Australia.  David has been in Ballarat for the last 9 years, having taken over the Head of Paediatrics in mid 2013 and opting for a 'tree change', with a permanent move to Ballarat with the entire family 4 years ago.  He has recently taken on the daunting role of Clinical Director of Specialist Clinics, Women’s & Children’s Health and for the last few years has presided as the Chair of the Senior Medical Staff Engagement committee for Ballarat Health Services.  In his spare time he likes pretending he is fit, enjoys spending time with his wife and wrangling his three lovely children.
