Associate Professor Stefan Dieleman

Stefan DielemanPosition

Associate Professor, School of Medicine


I trained as a Consultant Cardiac Anaesthetist and clinical researcher in Utrecht, The Netherlands. During that time, I completed a PhD around the use of high-dose corticosteroids in cardiac surgery.

In 2018 I moved to Sydney, where I have been working as a Staff Specialist at Westmead Hospital and is the Head of Research in the Department of Anaesthesia. I am a full-time Associate Professor and the inaugural academic lead for Anaesthesia at Western Sydney University, and a Clinical Associate Professor at The University of Sydney.

When not working, I enjoy reading, kayaking, swimming and, not surprisingly for a born Dutchman, bike riding.
