Dr Anthony Khoo, leading the MD3 OSCE

Dr Anthony Khoo, AKC MBBS MD(Res) MRCP(UK) FRACP, is an academic neurologist at Flinders University / Flinders Medical Centre and Deputy Director of Clinical Training at the Southern Adelaide Local Health Network.

After training in South Australia, Anthony completed clinical fellowships at the National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery, London, UK, where he gained subspecialty experience in epilepsy and neuromuscular diseases. During this time, he also worked in the Sir Jules Thorn Telemetry Unit at Queen Square and undertook further training in the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology on complex peripheral nervous system disorders.

Anthony was a frontline clinician during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK, and part of the UCL Queen Square Covid-19 Study Group who were among the first to describe clinical, radiologic and pathological complications affecting the nervous system after Covid-19 infection. He was Honorary Researcher in the Department of Epilepsy at Queen Square, and worked across national datasets with a focus on predictive models for epilepsy surgery, long-term outcomes in drug-resistant epilepsy, and the observed seizure manifestations, or ‘semiology’, in people with focal epilepsy.

His Doctor of Medicine (Research) was awarded by the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, supervised by Professor John Duncan and Professor Ley Sander from UCL, and supported by a Mensa Education & Research Foundation International Scholarship, RACP Margorie Hooper Scholarship, and grants from the National Brain Appeal and Australia Day Foundation UK Trust. Current research interests encompass treatment strategies for drug-resistant epilepsy and neurophysiological testing in motor neuron disease, in collaboration with the state-wide MND clinic at Flinders Medical Centre.

Anthony teaches all years of the Flinders University medical program and is involved in vocational and prevocational training of junior doctors at Flinders Medical Centre. He is also the new Clinical Lead for the MD Year 3 Objective Structured Clinical Exam (OSCE). Together with a team of clinical leaders (representing each of the OSCE stations), academic and professional staff, Anthony will coordinate cases and examiners for the exam that will be held in November.
