Dr Oli Sparasci


Dr Oli Sparasci is the current secretary of the Psychiatric Trainees Committee (PTC). The PTC is made up of trainee psychiatrists, who are elected by their peers and seek to represent the views of trainees within the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Oli graduated in Medicine and Surgery from Brighton and Sussex Medical School in 2016, where he also completed an intercalated BSc in Neuroscience. This is when his passion for the mind and brain was born and he realised that a career in Psychiatry was for him.

Moving to Manchester to complete Academic Foundation rotations in Bolton, Oli became an honorary Mancunian and has never looked back. Deciding to stay in the North West, he went on to become an Academic Clinical Fellow in Old Age Psychiatry on the Greater Manchester psychiatric training rotation.

After completing his core training, Oli is now working in Oldham as an ST4 in Old Age Psychiatry. He works across both inpatient and outpatient services, relishing the challenges of working in such a vibrant and diverse borough can bring.

Oli is a keen cyclist and can most days be seen riding through wind, rain or snow on his hour-long commute to Oldham. He is also a keen follower of Brighton and Hove Albion FC, regularly visiting the south coast for 90 minutes of fun.

During his year as the secretary of the PTC, Oli hopes to engage with as many trainees as possible. He is passionate about hearing the views and experiences of his fellow ‘on the ground’ trainees and wants to make sure that he represents those who elected him to the role. Oli is also keen to ensure that the PTC continues to build on the successes of the last year and is relishing the opportunity to work with Rosemary and Sharon for the next 12 months.
