Special clinical interest in arrhythmias / electrophysiology and cardiac CT.

Glenn graduated from the University of Adelaide in 1985 and undertook his internship, general medical training and advanced cardiology training at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. At this time invasive treatment of cardiac arrhythmias was in its infancy and Glenn decided to travel overseas to pursue his interest in this area.

Having been awarded the Lions Heart Foundation Travelling Fellowship, Glenn studied at the Royal Brompton National Heart Hospital in London for 12 months and then a further two years at the University Hospital in Vancouver, Canada.

In 1994 Glenn returned to the RAH to establish a comprehensive electrophysiology service. He continues to work predominantly in the field of cardiac arrhythmias performing both catheter ablations and implanting pacemakers and defibrillators.

Glenn has undertaken extensive research in the area of arrhythmias and this is an ongoing commitment. Glenn also involves himself in the teaching of medical students, cardiac trainees and nursing staff and is a Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Adelaide.

Glenn has an active role in the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand being past Chairman of the Pacing and EP working group and is on a number of other Cardiac Society and federal government committees.
