Melbourne Anaesthetic Group



Melbourne Anaesthetic Group (MAG) is Melbourne’s oldest anaesthetic group.

Established in East Melbourne in 1950 by 5 anaesthetists (Len Travers, Lorrie Morton, Greta McClelland, Lionel Bridges & Gordon Houseman), Melbourne Anaesthetic Group has always been at the forefront of modern anaesthesia in Melbourne.

MAG comprises a small & cohesive group of anaesthetists who pride themselves on their quality of work. As a group, we are able to ensure a seamless provision of anaesthetic services to the surgeons with whom we work.

A number of our members hold teaching positions at major public hospitals in Melbourne & all participate in regular CME activities.

MAG members are often invited to speak at local & international conferences and are well represented on a number of medical advisory boards at many of Melbourne’s private hospitals.
