More about Dr Andrew Rochford:
Andrew is a Graduate of The University of Sydney Medical School (Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery), completing the graduate medical program with honours. To compliment this he also holds a Bachelors Degree in Medical Science from the University of Sydney, majoring in Anatomy and Neuroscience. He has been published in the journal Neurosurgery as part of a research project for the Cerebrovascular Centre at Royal North Shore Hospital in St Leonards, Sydney. His specific medical interests include paediatric medicine, intensive care and neurosurgery.
Andrew made a public name for himself on television in 2004, when he competed in The Block with his partner Jamie – he and Jamie won the series.
In 2008, he hosted the Waiting Room, a medical based factual reality program also on the Nine network. Demystifying medical myths for TV goes hand in hand with his work as a surgical trainee at the Royal North Shore Hospital.
As the resident medicine man and human guinea pig of What’s Good for You team on the Nine Network he ate fifteen kilos of carrots to see whether his eyesight improved, stung himself with bluebottles to test five different remedies and waxed one side of his body to see if the hair will grow back coarser and darker.
Andrew has written columns for Woman’s Day and Australian Men’s Fitness as their resident Doctor, and made fortnightly appearances on Mornings with Kerri-Anne, covering medical issues.
A husband and father of three children, Andrew is passionate about family, fitness and health. He has been an ambassador for a number of causes and charities, including the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and DrinkWise, which primarily focus on health related issues in our community and the promotion of an active lifestyle for all Australians.
