Adrian is Professor at the College of Medicine and Public Health, Flinders University, and a Fellow of the Australian & New Zealand Association for Health Professional Educators (ANZAHPE).

Before moving into these programs Adrian was deputy director of the Greater Green Triangle University Department of Rural Health (Flinders University and Deakin University). Starting with physiotherapy he established an allied health workforce enhancement project, funded by the Victorian Department of Human Services, which evolved under his leadership into a state-wide continuing education program for 22 allied professions in Victoria that also provided online access to allied health in other Australian jurisdictions.
Interests include clinical and continuing education, complexity science and transformative learning. Adrian is a member of the Master in Clinical Education Program’s Advisory Board to oversee the next curriculum enhancement iteration of the program, a member of the International Network for Health Workforce Educators’ (INHWE) Advisory Board. Adrian is also one of the developers of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Health Professional Educators' mentor program to assist mentees in developing a research track record and their path to potential Fellowship of the association. As such he is supporting a number of mentees.
