Nicky Keay

I have extensive clinical and research experience in Endocrinology and SEM (before SEM became recognised specialty, which has inspired me to get back into clinical practice again). I have been attached to Sports Med clinics in AUZ (including Olympic Medical Park, Melbourne with Prof Khan and Dr Brukner) and have research publications from my studies of retired and young dancers and from my time on the international medical team developing dope test for GH.
