James Slattery

James has experience in Australia and New Zealand as an Oculoplastic Surgeon and Ophthalmologist.

Born and raised in Adelaide, James completed Biomedical Science with a year of Honours at Adelaide University before embarking on a PhD in Physiology. He then completed a Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery at Griffith University on the Gold Coast before completing Junior Doctor years at the Gold Coast University Hospital as well as country locums. During this time James was the playing doctor for the Labrador Football Club in the QAFL.

James returned to Adelaide to undergo formal Ophthalmology training and after completion he spent 18 months in Auckland, New Zealand sub-specialising in Oculoplastics under the guidance of Dr Paul Rosser and Dr Brian Sloan.

After returning to Adelaide he began public work as the Oculoplastic Subspecialist at The Womens and Childrens Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Flinders Medical Centre. He also began private practice at the same time and splits his time between both.

James regularly visits Alice Springs as a locum Ophthalmologist to provide both general care and an Oculoplastic service.

Continuing professional practice: James teaches advanced trainees through the Flinders Medical Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Womens and Childrens Hospital. James teaches students, both Medical and Optometry at his public and private practices and in the operating room. James is also a fellowship supervisor in Adelaide as well as teaching fellows in Cambodia, Fiji and the Solomon Islands.

When not managing a busy workload, Jame’s main interests are his four sons who all are keen sportsmen and keep him on his toes. He also enjoys keeping fit with running and cycling when he can squeeze it in.
