Alicia Dennis

 

A/Prof Alicia Dennis is an internationally recognised expert in obstetric anaesthesia, obstetric perioperative medicine and critical care, preeclampsia, and obstetric echocardiography. She is an academic obstetric anaesthetist, with appointments at The University of Melbourne, and The Royal Women’s Hospital, Melbourne.

A/Prof Dennis has worked in tertiary referral obstetric hospitals in Australia since 2001, and pioneered the contemporary use of transthoracic echocardiography for managing cardiovascular disease in pregnant women. Her work in the haemodynamics of preeclampsia has led to a new unified theory providing an alternative mechanism for the development of preeclampsia and consideration of new prevention and treatment options. "I am privileged to be able to work in an environment that enables me to pursue my dream of making a difference to the lives of pregnant women. I do this through advocating for gender equity, engaging with medical colleges, societies and government, and promoting clinical, research and educational excellence. Underpinning this is a strong sense of justice, ethics and respect; for patients, for colleagues, and importantly for medical students and early career doctors who we must care for and inspire to become the next generation of humanitarian leaders."
