Dr Barton Jennings

My name is Barton and I am a specialist in Lung Disease and Sleep Disorders.

I am inspired to help as many people as possible maximize their quality of life through achieving healthy lungs and sound sleep. At school and university, I always had a desire to help other people. Breathing and good quality sleep can sometimes be taken for granted but when there is a problem it causes significant distress. I now feel so grateful to be able to help people who may have disease affecting their lungs, breathing and sleep.

I live in Melbourne with my wife, Leah. We were married in Metung, Victoria which remains a special place to us. We have two terrific young boys who keep us busy and highly entertained. I love sport and am a keen tennis player and golfer. I also love to watch cricket and footy at the MCG and barrack for the Demons.

I am the Director of Lung Cancer and Bronchoscopy at Monash Health and chair the Lung Cancer Multidisciplinary Team Meeting.

I have special interest and expertise in the investigation of lung lesions and the management of patients with lung cancer. I perform bronchoscopy and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) at Monash, Cabrini and Epworth Hospitals.

I graduated from Medicine at Monash University in 2002. My specialist training was completed at Monash Medical Centre and Royal Melbourne Hospital. During my training I took time to gain further experience in cardiology research in Oxford, UK. Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians was gained in 2010. In 2011, I completed a clinical fellowship in Interventional Pulmonology and Lung Cancer management at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth. I completed my Masters of Medicine in Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Sydney in 2012 and am active in clinical research.
