Carolyn Broderick is an Associate Professor in the School of Health Sciences at UNSW Sydney and Staff Specialist in Sport & Exercise Medicine at The Children's Hospital at Westmead. She is Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Tennis Australia and The Australian Open and Medical Director of the Australian Olympic Team for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.
She co-developed (with Prof Ollie Jay & Dr James Smallcombe at University of Sydney) the Sports Medicine Australia (SMA) Extreme Heat Policy which was released in 2021 and was a co-author on the Lancet series on Heat & Health, published in August 2021. Her research expertise is in the area of injury and illness prevention in sporting populations and developing evidence-based guidelines for physical activity in children.
In collaboration with the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS), she co-authored the guidelines for return to sport in a COVID environment in 2020. These were adopted by the AHPPC and the Federal Cabinet and became the framework for restarting sport in Australia.
She is actively involved in clinical sports medicine and policy development for national and international sports and medical organisations, including the International Olympic Committee, The Australian Institute of Sport, Sports Medicine Australia, Tennis Australia and the Australasian College of Sport & Exercise Physicians, to improve athlete safety at all levels of competition.
