Dr Victor Duong FRACP
Dr Victor Duong is a graduate of the University of Queensland. He attained Fellowship of the
Royal Australasian College of Physicians (FRACP) after completing respiratory and sleep

Dr Duong holds a public appointment at Northern Health and is currently undertaking a PhD
at the University of Melbourne, exploring ways to integrate the latest technological
advances into ambulatory care for individuals with malignant pleural effusions. He has been

care, and believes that the best outcomes are achieved through shared decision making
with the individual and their treating clinicians.
