Davor Jurkovic was first appointed a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at King’s College Hospital, London in 1997. In 2008 he moved to the University College Hospital, London, where he was appointed a Director of Gynaecology Diagnostic and Outpatient Treatment Unit. The Unit provides a novel model of gynaecological care which integrates ultrasound examination into clinical care with emphasis on one stop clinics, conservative management of many benign gynaecological conditions and better use of outpatient operating facilities. More recently has also been appointed Professor of Gynaecology at University College London.
He is an internationally recognised expert in gynaecological ultrasound and he has published a large number of scientific papers and books in this field. He pioneered the use of colour Doppler and three-dimensional ultrasound in gynaecology. He is particularly well known for his work on the diagnosis and treatment of rare and complex forms of ectopic pregnancy, such as Caesarean scar ectopic pregnancies. He has also published extensively on the use of ultrasound for the diagnosis and management of endometriosis, adenomyosis and uterine fibroids as well as on the diagnosis of ovarian and endometrial cancer.
He has been running the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists training programmes in gynaecological ultrasound for more than two decades and has given many invited lectures on numerous medical conferences and scientific meetings. In 2020, he was awarded the Ian Donald Gold Medal by the International Society for Ultrasound in Gynaecology and Obstetrics for his scientific contribution to the advancement of diagnostic ultrasound and his impact on the way ultrasound is practiced through research or innovation.

Dr Anju Joham is a Senior Research Fellow at Monash at the Monash Centre for Health Research and Implementation, Monash University. She is an endocrinologist at Monash Health, Melbourne. Dr Joham was awarded her PhD focusing on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, obesity and insulin resistance in 2015. During her PhD, she was involved in a mechanistic insulin resistance study that examined insulin resistance in lean and obese women with PCOS compared to controls. She also worked on a large epidemiological study, the ongoing Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health (ALSWH). Key areas examined were PCOS prevalence, key predictors of PCOS, the relationship of PCOS to obesity and reproductive and metabolic complications.
Dr Joham was an awarded a NHMRC Early Career Fellowship to conduct her postdoctoral studies in the area of women’s health, with a particular focus on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. In her postdoctoral studies, she worked with two large longitudinal cohort studies, the ALSWH and the Raine cohort from Western Australia to understand the interplay of body weight in the development of metabolic, reproductive and psychological sequelae in women with PCOS compared to women without PCOS, with the aim of studying the natural history of PCOS over the reproductive lifespan from adolescence, young adulthood to menopause.
Dr Joham established a statewide multidisciplinary Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Service based at Monash Health in 2018 in response to consumer needs identified following stakeholder engagement.
