Dr Philip Mosley studied at the University of Oxford and obtained his medical degree in 2007. He worked as a junior doctor in Manchester before moving to Australia in 2009 to complete his specialist training in psychiatry. He is a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatry (RANZCP) and has completed an advanced certificate in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry. As part of his training Dr Mosley also undertook a two-year neuropsychiatry fellowship at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) and the Asia-Pacific Centre for Neuromodulation at St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital, the largest deep brain stimulation (DBS) centre in Australasia.
During his career in psychiatry to date, Dr Mosley has pursued a long-standing fascination with the brain and a curiosity about the interface between neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry. He is particularly interested in DBS for neurological and psychiatric disorders. Dr Mosley’s position at the Asia-Pacific Centre for Neuromodulation has given him the opportunity to study this remarkable technology in considerable depth. Dr Mosley currently works as a member of the DBS team at St. Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital and is also a member of the Systems Neuroscience group at the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute.
Dr Mosley has a strong interest in academic psychiatry and has written a chapter in an edited Oxford textbook as well as several original journal articles, including guidelines for the management of neuropsychiatric issues after deep brain stimulation. He is the principal investigator in a study of the effects of DBS for Parkinson’s disease on decision-making and relationship satisfaction and an investigator in a clinical trial of DBS for obsessive-compulsive disorder. He has won prizes from the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists in Old Age Psychiatry and Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry, and he has received research funding from the RBWH Foundation and the RANZCP Young Investigator Grant in addition to his Advance Queensland early-career fellowship.
