Following a two-year Internship and Residency at Royal Adelaide Hospital Dr Valentine spent five years working full-time as a Medical Officer with the Royal Australian Air Force.

Dr Valentine has a keen interest in all aspects of General Practice. He is an officially accredited Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME) with CASA and maintains an avid interest in all aspects of aviation medicine.
Dr Valentine has performed vasectomies in Brisbane since 2008, initially training in the traditional vasectomy technique with Dr Greg Silver before completing further advanced training in the USA to specialise in the No-Scalpel open-ended technique. Dr Valentine enjoys and regularly performs No Needle No-Scalpel open-ended Vasectomies. He prefers this method as it is proven to be less invasive for men with a significantly lower complication rate though he still performs traditional vasectomies if requested by patients.
