In 2007 and 2008, Peter worked as a fellow in both Brisbane and Melbourne, gaining experience in neonatal and paediatric anaesthesia and intensive care. 

Peadiatric anaesthesia continues to dominate Peter’s practice.  He works as a Visiting Medical Officer at Brisbane’s Royal Children’s Hospital, where he also participates in the paediatric liver transplant service.  He is closely involved in the education of trainee anaesthetists, both with hands-on teaching and lectures.
