Mr. Mike O’Brien was born and raised in West Cork in
Ireland. He went to medical school at University College Cork, graduating in
1989. He completed his adult general surgical training in Cork before starting
a PhD. He then moved to the UK for training in Paediatric Surgery working at
Great Ormond Street and Hammersmith Hospitals in London, University Hospital of
Wales in Cardiff, Bristol Children’s Hospital and Birmingham Children’s
Hospital. He also spent a year in Melbourne at The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH).
He returned to the UK and worked for a time as a Consultant Paediatric
Urologist in Birmingham but the lure of Melbourne was too strong. He has been a
Consultant Paediatric Urologist at RCH since 2005, and Head of Department of Urology
since 2009. In 2013 he became Chief of Surgery at RCH.
