Kieran studied medicine at the University of Sydney Medical School, graduating with honours in 2009. He then completed a Master of Surgery degree and commenced his training with the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand (USANZ) in 2013. While training, he was presented with the George Schnitzler award for registrar of the year in 2017, passing his FRACS examination that same year and completing his urology training in 2019.

Kieran has a further special interest in surgical education, having been a USANZ trainee representative. He is an active mentor to medical students and trainee surgeons and takes great pride in overseeing their development. He was recently appointed as one of two well-being officers for surgery at John Hunter Hospital, as well as the training supervisor for urology. In the same manner, he provides empathetic and professional care for his patients. His aim is to be approachable and accessible for all patients, while providing excellent surgical care.
