Dr Jane Alty

Staff Specialist in Neurology - Royal Hobart Hospital

Senior Lecturer and Researcher -  University of Tasmania

"I’m proud that I was able to combine a career in STEMM with motherhood, on the good weeks I feel I do a good job of both. But I’m proud I can have a family and a career that I absolutely love."

Jane trained in medicine and neurology and worked as a specialist doctor in the NHS for 18 years before moving to Tasmania in 2019. She now works as a doctor at the Royal Hobart Hospital and is also a researcher at Wicking Dementia Centre and School of Medicine. She specialises in Parkinsons and dementia, and using computer smartphone technology to develop new ways to diagnosing these diseases more accurately. She is also mother to 3 kids and married to a local GP. Jane enjoys reading, so when she moved to Hobart from the UK she started a book club, and she also fits in rowing and park-runs at the weekends.
