Dr O'Keefe graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1980 and subsequently worked at the Austin Hospital before commencing Dermatology training in 1983. After attaining his Fellowship in the Australasian College of Dermatologists he worked in Glasgow from 1986 - 1987. On returning to Melbourne he worked as a sessional Dermatologist at St Vincent's Hospital and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute and commenced a private Dermatology practice.

In order to pursue his interest in dermatopathology, Dr O'Keefe commenced training as a pathologist and completed his Fellowship in the Royal Australasian College of Pathologists in 1995. He maintained a part-time practice in dermatology during his pathology training and then worked half-time in his dermatology practice and half-time in dermatopathology, initially at Dorevitch Pathology and from 2001 in his own dermatopathology laboratory, Dermpath, until 2011 when he joined Melbourne Pathology. Dr O'Keefe was appointed Director of Pathology at the Skin and Cancer Foundation Inc. in 2015 and feels privileged to be able to maintain his passion for both areas of specialist practice.
