Dr Philip Mosley
MA (Oxon.) BMBCh (Oxon.) FRANZCP PhD
I work at the interface of neurology and psychiatry.
Dr Philip Mosley has a degree in medicine and a master’s degree in physiological sciences from the University of Oxford. Upon graduating he worked as a junior doctor in Manchester before moving to Australia to complete his specialist training in psychiatry. In 2015 Dr Mosley became a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatry (RANZCP) and received an advanced certificate in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry. As part of his training he also undertook a 2-year neuropsychiatry fellowship at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) and the Asia-Pacific Centre for Neuromodulation (APCN) at the University of Queensland.
Dr Mosley subsequently completed a PhD in computational neuroscience and neuroimaging in 2019, studying the behavioural and cognitive effects of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson’s disease. Eleven papers were published from Dr Mosley’s thesis and he has won several prizes and research grants, including an ‘Advance Queensland’ fellowship from the Queensland Government, the postgraduate medal from the Australian Society for Medical Research and the Early Career Psychiatrist award from the RANZCP. The latter award is presented to the fellow producing the most significant piece of research in the five years since fellowship.
Dr Mosley currently works as a neuropsychiatrist at Neurosciences Queensland and provides a consultation-liaison psychiatry service to the neurology, medical and surgical wards at St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital in Brisbane. He continues an active neuroscience research career and holds appointments at the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, the Queensland Brain Institute and CSIRO.
Dr Mosley is also a member of the DBS team at Neurosciences Queensland and reviews all patients considering this therapy. Using techniques that Dr Mosley developed during his PhD, he assists with localising the postoperative position and orientation of the DBS electrodes in order to guide stimulation programming.
