Dr Philip Tideman is the Clinical Director of the Integrated Cardiovascular Clinical Network SA (iCCnet SA).
He trained at the Royal Hobart and Royal Adelaide hospitals, completing Cardiology specialist training at the Flinders Medical Centre in 1996.

His major research interests include biochemical markers of myocardial necrosis, point of care pathology, medical information and communication technology, cardiovascular epidemiology, geographic variation in patterns of cardiovascular care and outcomes, clinical evidence implementation and continuous quality improvement in clinical practice. He is a member of the Clinical Governance Committee of Country Health SA Hospital Incorporated, is Cardiology Clinical Advisor and Medical Advisory Committee member in the Adelaide Health Care Alliance (ACHA) and is a steering group member of the National Heart Foundation of Australia Acute Coronary Syndromes Implementation and Advocacy Working Group.
