Dr Hile completed a degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Technology, Sydney in 1985, with first class honours. Along with a prize for academic achievement, he also gained an interest in biomedical engineering, the application of engineering science to the human body and medicine.
To satisfy that interest Dr Hile commenced a degree in Medicine and Surgery at The University of Sydney, graduating in 1990.
Orthopaedic surgery was an obvious choice for specialty training given its melding of the art of medicine and science of engineering. Dr Hile completed Orthopaedic Surgery training in Sydney in 1999.
