Senior Staff Specialist, Alice Springs Hospital. Honorary, Australian National University

Simon Quilty is a specialist physician working in a remote hospital in the Northern Territory, with unique perspectives on remote health care. In the late '90's Simon worked as an engineer for a biotech start-up in Sydney, before changing to medicine and public health.

Over the past decade, he has specialised in adult internal medicine, training specifically for remote North Australian acute care hospital environments.

Simon is engaged in ongoing innovative research, looking for sustainable solutions to provision of high quality health care to remote and indigenous people in the tropical North of Australia. The focus of his research, partnering with ANU and the many organisations providing vital services in the remote NT, is on heat and mortality, and how remote communities can prepare for a warming climate.
