He trained at Monash University in Melbourne, completing his residency and a two-year cardiology fellowship at the Alfred Hospital.

He initially completed a two year fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, where he remained working as a Senior Associate Cardiologist.
He was a staff cardiologist for 3 years at the Cleveland Clinic and then to Michigan as the Director of Echocardiography at the Michigan Heart and Vascular Institute.

In 1997, after 14 years in the USA, Philip returned to Australia, initially to Royal Perth Hospital. Over the last 18 years, he has very successfully established a private cardiology practice (CVS), which has evolved into a national private integrated specialist group practice bringing together a range of specialties to provide high quality integrated specialist medical care to patients.
