About Dr Mark Wilson
I am a Staff Specialist Gastroenterologist & Hepatologist at the Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH) and Consultant at Calvary Hospital, Tasmania.
I have been granted Specialist Registration in Gastroenterology & Hepatology and am a member of The Gastroenterological Society of Australia (GESA).
Born in Burnie and growing up in Hobart I attended Corpus Christi Primary School in Bellerive, St. Virgils' College Austins Ferry, Guilford Young College Hobart and the University of Tasmania (UTAS).
I completed my basic Physician training at RHH and undertook my advanced training in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, the Monash Medical Centre (MMC) and Launceston General Hospital (LGH). I was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in January 2012.
I returned to live in Hobart in 2012 with my wife Rachael, a fellow Tasmanian, who is a Hospital Pharmacist at the RHH. We made the decision that Tasmania is where we wanted to live, work and raise our family, with our son, John, born in Hobart on Christmas Eve 2014.
I was fortunate to be able to relocate and commence work at the RHH as a Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist and shortly thereafter I also established private rooms at Calvary Health Care.
I am currently a Clinical Lecturer at the UTAS School of Medicine and co-supervisor of the accredited Gastroenterology and Hepatology registrar training program at the RHH.
I was also a Clinical Lead for the RHH Clinical Re-design project.
I consult across all areas of Gastroenterology, with a special interest in Hepatology. I oversee the weekly RHH Liver Clinic and have experience in treating and managing patients with viral hepatitis and liver transplant patients.
I have also taken additional interest and training in oesophageal mamometry and pH monitoring and have Conjoint Committee recognition in Capsule Endoscopy (PillCam).
When not spending time with my family you can find me in the water surfing.
