About Me

I underwent my basic medical training in Dublin, Ireland from 1984 and graduated in 1990. I then proceeded to do a year of internship (house officer post) in Limerick on the West Coast of Irelandin a regional district hospital. It was a great learning experience and on completion of my internship, I left for the United Kingdon where I worked in Swansea, Wales for 6 months in Geriatric medicine. I then entered a general medical rotation in Worcestershire for two years in the various specialties of Cardiology, Endocrinology, Rheumatology and Respiratory Medicine.

I left general medical training to enter the All Birmingham Rotational Training Scheme in Psychiatry at the University of Birmingham in the West Midlands, UK. There I trained for 4 years and obtained the MRCPsych qualification. I then worked as a locum consultant for 18 months before I returned to Malaysia in late 1999. In the UK, I worked primarily in the field of Rehabilitation Psychiatry and Home Treatment. We provided an alternative treatment service to patients where they were assessed and treated at home with a team of nurses, occupational therapists and psychologists.

On return to Malaysia, I joined University Malaya as a lecturer in psychiatry and my main role there was running the Psychiatric Day Care Centre and Rehabilitation unit which I did for three and a half years. I left for private practice in 2003 where I joined Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur and Sunway Medical Centre. Currently, I practice in just one location, at Gleneagles hospital Kuala Lumpur.
