Inclined toward surgery early in his career, Dr. Rowe undertook his initial training at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, advancing to general surgery training in 2008. His passion for Plastic Surgery was evident, and he embarked on a PhD journey under the mentorship of Prof Wayne Morrison, a renowned figure in the field, which segued into his specialized training in Plastic Surgery in 2012.

His training journey in Plastic Surgery began in Melbourne with a particular focus on hand surgery.

Under the guidance of eminent practitioners like Dr. Vedella Hinckley and Dr. William Cockburn at the Royal Brisbane Hospital, Dr. Rowe refined his skills in head and neck cancer resection and with Head and Neck Reconstructive Surgeons at both the Royal Brisbane and Princess Alexandra Hospital.

In addition to clinical practice, Dr. Rowe remains actively engaged in research, a fact that earned him the prestigious Emmett Prize for the best research presentation in Plastic and reconstructive surgery. Currently, he is wrapping up his PhD focused on adipose tissue engineering.
