Paul Gilmore graduated as a doctor in 1996 before entering into a broad training in surgery and urology. This training included a two year research period with Cancer Research UK investigating the cellular basis of prostate cancer.
Paul's research led to him obtaining research grants worth over $100,000 from the British Urological Foundation and The Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2001. Paul published widely on his research and obtained his higher degree of Doctor of Medicine (MD) from Manchester University.
Paul followed his research with specialist training in urology. His training covered all aspects of urological diseases and surgery. To finish his training in minimally invasive cancer surgery, Paul undertook the prestigious Laparoscopic and Robotic Uro-oncology Fellowship with Melbourne robotic surgical pioneer and world renowned robotic prostate cancer surgeon, Professor Tony Costello.
Paul has obtained dual Fellowships of both the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Paul also maintains professional memberships of the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand, the British Association of Urological Surgeons, The American Urological Association, the European Urological Association and the Societe Internationale d'Urologie.
Paul has worked in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula since 2010 and was asked to head the Urology Unit at Peninsula Health in January 2016. In Paul's position as Head of Urology, he will continue to build on the strong foundations he helped build in the preceeding five years at Peninsula Health.
With Frankston Urology Services, Paul has taken up positions as consultant urological surgeon at Beleura Private Hospital, Frankston Private Hospital and Peninsula Private Hospital.
