After completing his Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) at the University of Queensland, and receiving his general surgical fellowship (FRACS), Dr Wilkinson undertook a further three years of higher level specialty training and experience as a fellow in breast and endocrine surgery both locally and overseas in Bristol, England. He has worked in this subspecialty since 1996.

Dr Wilkinson holds an appointment as a visiting consultant for Endocrine Surgery at the Princess Alexandra Hospital and also has his own private practice with private rooms on Wickham Terrace.

Dr Wilkinson is a member of the Australian Medical Association, the Australian Endocrine Surgeons and the International Association of Endocrine Surgeons. Dr Wilkinson is actively involved in teaching medical students and surgeons. He has convened college and oncology specialty meetings and is regularly an invited chairman or speaker. He has also taught surgeons in Tonga and Cambodia through organisations such as AusAID. Dr Wilkinson has published scientific articles in a number of peer-reviewed medical journals.

In 2015, Dr Wilkinson authored a book “Can Food be Medicine Against Cancer? - A healthy handbook that combines science, medicine and not-so-common sense”. Dr Wilkinson wrote the book in response to repeated requests from his cancer patients for information about the potential benefits of the right food. To fill a gap in available literature, Dr Wilkinson wanted to provide inspiring material based on credibly sourced, thoroughly referenced, peer-reviewed research. He felt there was a need to write a book that provides for the information needs of medical and allied health practitioners, cancer patients, their carers and people interested in cancer.
