Sir Sidney Sewell worked for a short period as a neurologist and assistant pathologist at St Vincent's Hospital, then took up the post of physician to out-patients at (Royal) Melbourne Hospital (c.1911). He also lectured in neurology at the University of Melbourne and ran a private medical practice in Melbourne. During the early 1920s, Sewell visited the Hospital for Consumption and Diseases of the Chest in Brompton, London, to learn the technique of artificial pneumothorax, and to the United States of America to study the management of tuberculosis. Upon returning to Victoria and after much effort and criticism he managed to establish a State tuberculosis service in Victoria. In 1930 Sewell co-founded the Association of Physicians of Australasia which was the forerunner of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. Sir Sidney Sewell was knighted in 1945 for his services to the medical profession.
