Dr Trudi Mcalees is a Massey Graduate who started her career in NZ in a mainly dairy practice in a small town in the centre of the North Island of New Zealand. There she was introduced to the rewards and frustrations of emergency practice. Trudi then spent a few years doing long-term locums in the UK and travelling before moving to Melbourne in 2000 to pursue a residency in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care. Trudi worked at the University of Melbourne teaching hospital for 10 years. She then returned to private practice, initially in Melbourne and now back home in New Zealand.
Trudi is committed to post-graduate education. She is passionate about improving the ability of practitioners to deal with emergencies, and as a side benefit, hopes to decrease the angst that can accompany these cases when they present. Trudi has a particular interest in analgesia, ventilation and multi-trauma cases. Trudi presents the CVE’s Feline Emergency TimeOnline course & is co-tutor of the Emergency Medicine Distance Education along with Sandra Forsyth.
Trudi has memberships of the ANZCVS in Anaesthesia and Critical Care, and in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care and was the first person to achieve Fellowship in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care in 2008.
