Director, STARS Rehabilitation Engineering
Peter Slattery is the Director of STARS Rehabilitation Engineering and has worked in the field for over 35 years. During this time, rehabilitation engineering at the Herston Hospitals campus has gone from being a part-time off-shoot of traditional biomedical engineering, utilising real estate that nobody else wanted, to a service that was a key part of the planning process for the new Surgical Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS) Hospital. Peter has played a key role in developing this service and promoting the benefits that engineering skills can bring in helping people live their lives the way they want to.
Peter is a current member of Engineers Australia, National Committee of Rehabilitation Engineering and has worked in a variety of roles in education and mentoring for engineers in the field.
