Dr Megan Di Quinzio MBBS, MD, FRANZCOG is a passionate and caring obstetrician and gynaecologist located in Fitzroy, Melbourne.
After a short career as a professional ballerina, I swapped my ballet shoes for Medicine and graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1996. I was named on the Dean’s Honours List in my 5th and Final year. The great enjoyment I experienced during my undergraduate Women’s Health rotation has led me into a career in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. My formal training began at the Mercy Hospital for Women in 1998. In 2004, I was awarded my specialty Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists Fellowship. My career has allowed me to work and train not only at the Mercy Hospital for Women, but also the Austin, the Northern, the Heidelberg Repatriation, and Bendigo hospitals.
I am currently Head of Unit - Waterdale Obstetrics (Acting) at the Mercy Hospital for Women. Aside from clinical leadership, I am involved in clinical mentorship and teaching of the junior medical staff, including RANZCOG trainees as well as medical students from the University of Melbourne. I am also on the RANZCOG Board of Examiners and remain actively involved in the examination process for future RANZCOG candidates.
In 2007, I completed a research doctoral degree in preterm birth (Doctor of Medicine, University of Melbourne) joining the Clinical Honorary staff of the University of Melbourne. Today, I am an Associate Professor (Clinical) in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the Royal Women’s Hospital and the Mercy Hospital for Women. Currently I provide clinical research expertise for the exciting PPeTaL Study (predicting preterm labour) being conducted with the kind participation of public patients who are booked to have their babies at the Royal Women’s Hospital or the Mercy Hospital for Women. If you are interested in the details of this study please look at my Media page.
Given the mixture of responsibilities in my obstetric life, I do limit the number of obstetric bookings so that I can provide optimum care for you.
On a personal note, to the many mothers, fathers, birth partners and families over the past 20 years, thank you for allowing me to be a part of such a special time in your lives.
