Inside the Mind of Dual Psychiatrist and Pain Medicine Physician – Interview with Dr Khaldoon Alsaee

Posted on October 21, 2016

HI KHALDOON, THANK YOU FOR TALKING TO PSYCHSCENE HUB. CAN YOU SHARE A BIT OF YOUR BACKGROUND WITH OUR HUBSTERS?

Thanks, Sanil,  I was born & raised in Bahrain, a small island in the Middle East.  I studied Medicine at the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin, Ireland.  After completing my internship, I trained in Psychiatry there for a year before making a move to sunny Townsville in North Queensland where I completed the rest of my Psychiatry training, followed by my Fellowship in Pain Medicine.  I currently work at the Townsville Private Clinic as a Psychiatrist & I am a Director of a private multidisciplinary pain management & acute injury service called LiveWell Healthcare Group.  I maintain one day a week with the North Queensland Persistent Pain Management Service (NQPPMS) as a dual specialist.
