Dr. Paul Paddle

Paul Paddle is an ENT, head and neck surgeon with fellowship training in Laryngology – Voice, airway and Swallowing disorders. Working at Monash Health, Paul is exposed to tertiary level management of a wide range of adult & paediatric ENT conditions. This is juxtaposed against his regular outreach work in regional Victoria, which provides him with a contrast of resources, service access and presentations. It is this contrast in care which stimulated the development of his current GPRWMF research project.

Paul also has a keen interest in public health and research, knowing the impact this can have on the care of his individual patients and the health of the greater community. He has completed a Masters of Public Health at Melbourne University, and a post-graduate diploma of Anatomy in 2006. He is currently a principle investigator in a number of clinical trials in the fields of ENT, and holds a number of research grants.

Paul also works to innovate aspects of patient engagement, education, and safety through the use of software and technology solutions, and has conducted a number of projects and funded trials in this field.

Paul holds senior lecturer positions at both Monash University and LaTrobe University, and is the Supervisor of ENT training at Monash Health.

Paul is a keen musician, having an Associate Diploma of Music (AmusA) in both Piano and Viola. He is a devoted husband and doting father of three young children.
