Dr Samson completed medical school at Flinders University followed by orthopaedic training in South Australia. He maintains high standards of patient-care and values the importance of continuing education and training that underpins this. After obtaining Fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (Orthopaedics), rather than settling for observerships, Dr Samson completed an intensive hands-on joint replacement fellowship at the internationally recognised Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. Dr Samson is a senior lecturer for Flinders University and is responsible for training international surgeons and local trainees in anterior hip replacement, robotic knee replacement and trauma surgery.
Dr Samson consults at Flinders Private Hospital, Orthopaedics SA Ashford and Parkside, Brighton (SA Medical Specialists), Aldinga Medical Centre, Yankalilla (Greater Fleurieu Medical Centre), Victor Medical Centre and is also a Staff Specialist for the Southern Area Local Health Network.
