He undertook specialist training in neurology at the Mayo Clinic and EMG Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital in the USA. He returned to Australia after his overseas training, working in Perth for eight years, before moving back to a neurophysiology role at Monash Medical Centre. Since 2004 he has worked at the Royal Melbourne Hospital where he is involved in neurophysiology training and teaching.

Assoc. Professor Day’s specific areas of interest include Nerve Conduction Studies and Electromyography(EMG) with an emphasis on diagnosis of complex neuromuscular disorders, including peripheral neuropathies, muscle disease, myasthenia and nerve injuries, as well as common nerve entrapments such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

 

Appointments:

 

Associate Professor Day consults on Mondays (morning) on a fortnightly basis.

 

He does not conduct medical consultations via Medical Group Victoria (i.e. he undertakes neurophysiology testing only within MGV). Patients wishing to see Assoc Professor Day for a consultation and/or management plan are requested to contact his Cabrini rooms (95093233). The Cabrini rooms are a separate entity to that of Medical Group Victoria.
