Having completed his basic medical degree in 1996 Ranjit Menon worked and trained in surgical specialties until a back injury forced a change of career. He moved to Perth, WA in 2000 and started his career in psychiatry. He subsequently moved to New Zealand in 2005 after being offered a training position at the prestigious Christchurch School of Medicine, University of Otago. He completed his basic training in 2009, an Advanced Certificate in Consultation Liaison Psychiatry in 2011 and received his Fellowship with the Australian & New Zealand College of Psychiatrists.
Ranjit Menon subsequently relocated to Melbourne and started work in private practice. He has since been involved in several research studies into treatment of mood and anxiety disorders and has authored/ co-authored several publications in Australian and International Journals. Ranjit Menon has also been involved in supervision and training of trainee psychiatrists and medical students. He has given several lectures and educational talks to General Practitioners and other medical specialists.
A member of the International Society for Sports Psychiatry, he has been working closely with a variety of sporting organisations including Cricket Australia, AFLPA and Racing Victoria as a preferred provider in managing high performance athletes. He also works with a number of Melbourne based AFL clubs through their club doctors and club psychologists. He is working on research to improve management of athlete related psychiatric disorders.
An avid enthusiast and participant in a variety of sporting activities he realised early in his life that his sporting skill and ability fell well short of his enthusiasm. Having accepted this reality he continues to pursue activities such as general fitness, golf, tennis and martial arts. An aspiring author, a ‘culinary alchemist’ and an avid reader, he is well supported in his eclectic (perhaps even Quixotic) mix of activities by his wife and his two boys.
