Dr Hohenberg is an academic geriatrician working at Campbelltown Hospital and Western Sydney University, Campbelltown Campus.
He was trained at the Royal Free & University College London Medical Schools (University of London) and moved to Australia in 2008. Completing training in Sydney, he became a geriatric specialist in 2016.
Mark has a strong interest in medical education including development of professional skills at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as curriculum development. He has completed a Master's degree in medical education through research with a qualitative project on the subject of what interns want to learn and how, during their first year of practice. With this work, he has sat on an advisory panel of experts to HETI in designing a new prevocational curriculum in NSW. Mark continues to be involved with medical education projects in the undergraduate and postgraduate arenas. Mark has also completed clinical quantitative research on ambulatory blood pressure monitor use in hospital inpatients.
Within the Hospital, Mark leads the geriatric education programmes to medical students and junior doctors as well as supervising advanced (vocational) trainees. He also supervises audit and research conducted by junior doctors and other members of the extended geriatric multi-disciplinary team.
At a National level, Mark is an ex-Federal counsellor on the ANZSGM Federal Council and continues to contribute to the ANZSGM General Medical Education and Training committee (GMET).
Mark's vision is to develop a strong academic geriatric multi-disciplinary specialty that is built upon excellence in research and education that translates to effective clinical outcomes for patients, carers and staff within our healthcare and tertiary education systems.
