DR ALICE MCNAMARA
ACSEP Registrar – BSci BComm MD
Dr Alice McNamara joins MP sports in 2020 after 15 years of involvement in sport at an elite and community level, now as a Registrar with the Australian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians.
Alice was a two time Rowing World Champion in the Lightweight Women’s Quad Scull in 2007 and 2008. She represented Australia on the Australian Rowing Team for 11 years between 2005 and 2015, training out of the VIS and AIS. After narrowly missing selection for the LW2x boat, she was an alternate athlete for the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing, and 2012 games in London.
She has spent a similar amount of time coaching rowing and has a great interest in movement biomechanics and injury prevention. Alice also played and coached junior basketball, and credits her elite sports years to a great background and exposure to a great diversity of sports at school.
Alice is working with Rowing Australia as a doctor with the underage athletes preparing for World Championships. She really enjoys seeing the team and social benefits of sport and is also working with the Sandringham VFL team for their 2020 season, after working across a few clubs in 2019. Alice has worked as the doctor for the Melbourne University Sport for 3 years. Alice wants to see injuries managed early and well, minimising time off the field while maximising function for life after sport.
Alice has strong interest in endurance sport, elite athlete wellbeing and performance, female athletes and considerations for their performance, and expedition, travel and wilderness medicine. Alice currently is a keen trail and vertical runner and cyclist, and enjoys getting out in the great outdoor with friends and family. She regularly works for Endurance Medical Services at remote events.
Alice has worked as an Emergency Doctor at Northeast Heath Wangaratta completing the Emergency Medicine Certificate and worked her junior years at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, enjoying working with patients to get back to sport and life after a hospital admission.
She is also passionate about Exercise as Medicine for life and as a 7 x winner or Eureka Tower Run Up and the president of Stair Climbing Australia she can talk for a long time about stair climbing if you get her going! Alice welcomes patients of all ages and abilities and looks forward to helping you with your goals.
