Anaesthetist and Intensive Care Physician

Dr Ida Ukor is a dual Anaesthesia and Intensive Care specialist with extensive experience in Critical Care and Perioperative Medicine.

After graduating from the University of Melbourne Medical School, Dr Ukor gained a strong clinical foundation during internship and houseman years at The Alfred, Melbourne, during which she commenced specialist Intensive Care Medicine training in 2008. A subsequent move to the United Kingdom resulted in a period of anaesthesia training at a Royal College of Anaesthetists- accredited facility where she gained extensive experience in managing after hours emergency cases, major elective surgery, and interhospital transfer of patients requiring tertiary management in London.

On return to Australia, Dr Ukor completed Anaesthesia training predominantly at Monash Health (a tertiary paediatric, obstetric and adult centre). Completion of Intensive Care training at the Austin and Alfred hospitals ensured extensive experience in the management of cardiac, respiratory and liver transplant patients, burns victims and major trauma. Dr Ukor also has significant experience in rural, regional and under-resourced settings, having worked in several regional and rural centres around Australia.

A Fellow of both the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, and College of Intensive Care Medicine, Dr Ukor completed 12 months of further subspecialist training in Perioperative Medicine at Monash Health and Cabrini Hospital (with the Hooke-Cunningham Team) in 2017. She is currently completing a postdoctoral research fellowship through the Centre for Heart and Lung Innovation, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, in Sepsis Genomics using computational biology. She splits her time between research in the Canadian Pacific Northwest, and Anaesthesia and Intensive Care practice in various locations in Australia.
