Douglas Crompton

 

Doug started his career as a basic scientist, working on genes involved in establishing the nervous system of the fruit fly. After completing his undergraduate degree (University of Cambridge, UK) and his PhD (University of Glasgow) he moved to the Newcastle upon Tyne to study medicine.

He completed general medical training in hospitals in and around Newcastle, then embarked on Specialty training in Neurology. This began in Neuroscience centres in North-East England (2002-2006) followed by a Clinical Fellowship in Epilepsy at the University of Melbourne, Austin Health, with Professors Sam Berkovic and Ingrid Scheffer (2006-2009). Doug then returned to the UK as Senior Clinical Lecturer in Neurogenetics at Newcastle University and Honorary Consultant Neurologist at James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough (2009-2012) before coming back to Melbourne as full time Neurologist at Northern Health in March 2012. Doug~s clinical practice is in all areas of Neurology, but his research focus is in the genetics of epilepsies, and he continues to work closely with Professors Berkovic and Scheffer at the University of Melbourne, Austin Health, who are world leaders in this field.
