Mark started his early medical career in General Practice, but made the decision to switch to anaesthesia after two years. He completed his specialist anaesthesia training in 1997, and then worked in Scotland and rural Queensland before settling back in Adelaide, joining the Wakefield Anaesthetic Group in 1999. He has also been a Visiting Medical Officer at the Flinders Medical Centre since 2000. Mark has a widely varied workload, from sedation for minor diagnostic procedures, through to anaesthesia for major procedures such as joint replacement and cancer resection.

He also deals with government bodies and other groups responsible for health care funding.
