Dr Christopher Woolley BHSc MD DCH FRACGP

Dr Chris Woolley first completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Adelaide in 2011 and then completed his Doctor of Medicine (MD) at Flinders University in 2015. He undertook further training at the Royal Adelaide, Queen Elizabeth and Women’s and Children’s Hospitals (completing a Diploma of Child Health during this time) before commencing work in General Practice in 2019. He became a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 2021.

Chris’ interest in weight management began following his own experiences in managing his weight as a teenager. From that basis, he appreciates that losing weight is not necessarily a simple task and can have plenty of ups and downs. From that initial interest, Chris has continued to study all aspects of weight management (including undertaking research with the Obesity Clinic at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and publishing in the Journal of Nutrition, Health and Ageing) and hopes to use that expertise to help simplify this journey for others. He believes that weight management should be focused on developing overall health and wellbeing and any interventions should be both balanced and sustainable in the long term.

Outside of work Chris is married and has 2 amazing young children. He enjoys being outdoors and loves his sport.
