Dr Craig Carden

Medical Oncologist


Dr Craig Carden lives with his wife and two children in Ballarat Central, in a house with a shed in which he does woodworking in his spare time.

Dr Craig Carden trained at The Royal Melbourne, Austin and Peter MacCallum hospitals before spending three years at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London. There he worked on new drug development, particularly in phase I trials, which are the first introduction of new drugs into humans. He spent time working in the subspecialty areas of prostate, lung and ovarian cancer, carrying out a laboratory based research program in a molecular pathway involving ovarian cancer patient samples.

On the birth of his first child Dr Craig Carden moved back to Melbourne to work at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, before moving up to Ballarat in 2010.

Craig enjoys leading the Ballarat Cancer Care team, to provide the best level of care possible to our patients, in collaboration with referring doctors and day oncology staff.
