Dr Jubal John


 

Jubal is a neonatologist and general paediatrician, who is passionate about caring for newborns.

He moved to Melbourne in 2009 to specialise in neonatology completing advanced neonatal training at the Royal Women's Hospital and Royal Children's Hospital. He completed medical school at the university of Auckland, New Zealand in 2003, and subsequently worked in various hospitals across New Zealand completing his internship and initial paediatric training from 2004-2009. In Australia, Jubal enjoyed spending a year working in aeromedical emergency medical retrieval of neonates, 6 months of which was spent with MedSTAR Kids South Australia.

Jubal is also passionate about leveraging technology within healthcare to improve delivery of clinical care. He created the neonatal electronic resusitation calculator (http://neocalc.org) used by the RCH PIPER retrieval service as an efficiently alternative to manual calculations that are potentially error prone. Jubal continues to work at the Royal Womens' Hospital NICU to improve clinical quality by using data from neonatal monitoring devices in more meaningful ways.

Jubal works part time, and is a father to a vigorously curious daughter into whom he attempts to imbue his love of science and humour - but often ends up being schooled by her instead!
