Assistant Professor Lim Toon Wei graduated from the University of Sydney in 1997 with 1st Class Honours. He completed his physician’s training in cardiology at Westmead Hospital (Sydney, Australia) and was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in 2006. Following this, he was a Cardiology Research Fellow till 2009 at Westmead Hospital, working in the area of catheter ablation for cardiac arrhythmias, particularly that of atrial fibrillation. He was awarded a PhD from the University of Sydney for this research work, which included one of the largest randomized clinical trials of atrial fibrillation ablation techniques.

In 2009 he joined the University of Ottawa Heart Institute as a Clinical Fellow in Cardiac Electrophysiology before returning to his hometown in 2010 to join the National University Heart Centre, Singapore as a Consultant.

While Asst. Prof. Lim sees general cardiology patients, his clinical and research interest is in cardiac arrhythmias (heart rhythm disorders). As part of his practice, he implants pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation pacemakers or defibrillators. He also performs both conventional and complex ablation procedures for all forms of arrhythmias.

Asst. Prof. Lim is active in medical education and is a core faculty member of the Cardiology Senior Residency Programme. For the past 3 years, he has also served in the council of the Singapore Cardiac Society as the Honorary Secretary and as the Honorary Treasurer.
