Personal profile


Dr Filippe Oliveira coordinates an undergraduate unit which is consistently ranked in the top 5 units with over one hundred students at the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences and in the top 7% of all units taught at Monash University. He also teaches in postgraduate courses in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Monash Institute for Health and Clinical Education (MIHCE) and Harvard Macy Institute (HMI). Another important part of his role is to coordinate a suite of professional development courses for healthcare providers and engage with medical industry partners and professional associations to promote health education and clinical skills.


During Filippe's Master of Science (MSc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees, he investigated the physiological and metabolic outcomes of fetal programming by diet and exercise (Filippe Falcao-Tebas for publications). He is regularly invited to review papers for high-impact journals in the fields of physiology, metabolism, diabetes, nutrition and developmental programming (Publons). Filippe's main research interests are in how environmental exposures early in life play a role in the fetal-placental development and affect the risk of cardiometabolic diseases in adulthood.
