BIOGRAPHY

Lived all my life in Malaysia. I am an Indian and a Hindu by religion. I graduated from Kasturba Medical College, Mysore, India, and since then served in the public hospitals in Malaysia. I have done a fair bit of rural posting and have gained experiences in primary care, accident and emergency, orthopaedic and ENT. My last stop is psychiatry. Got my masters in psychiatry from the local university, University Sains Malaysia (USM) and since then worked as a clinical psychiatrist in a Mental Institution, Hospital Bahagia Ulu Kinta, Perak.

My last task is to set up psychiatric services in Hospital, Bukit Mertajam and headed the unit until I retired from public service. I was a part-time lecturer at RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus and after retirement, joined RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus full time as a senior lecturer.

My social obligations start with me being a committee member of the Mental Health Association Penang, through this organisation I am able to develop a support group for antenatal and postnatal depressed mothers. Besides that, the other NGO is the D’Home which is involved with family link program for patients and caregivers. I also conduct weekend classes ‘education in human value’ for children and youths in the local community.

Lastly “Living a life that matters don’t happen by accident. It’s not a matter of circumstance but of choice” Michael Josephson

BIOGRAPHY

Ms Fairuz received her biomedical science degree from the University of Malaya in 2009. She worked in a microbiological laboratory for a few months before joining the Biopharmaceutical Services Division, Ministry of Health from 2009 to 2011 as a research officer. Then, she had an opportunity to further her study in Masters of Science (Medical Statistics) at Universiti Sains Malaysia. After getting her master degree in 2013, she worked in a health research company as a consultant until she resigned to join RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus in 2014 as lecturer and statistician.

BIOGRAPHY

Joined RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus in 2007 as a senior lecturer and is responsible for setting up the Foundation Year programme of the college. Currently coordinates and teaches in the Foundation in Science and Pre-Medical Year programmes.

Past academic teaching/administrative experience includes being the Head of the Centre for Pre-University Studies at KDU College Penang (2001-2004). Prior to this, I was a senior lecturer and programme coordinator of the Cambridge A-level Programme at Disted College, Penang (1995-1999).

While here, I was responsible for setting up the Cambridge A-level programme for the college and was in the pioneer group to design and introduce the 1-year Cambridge A-level and successfully delivered the curriculum. This 1-year programme has since proved to be very popular with students.

Past public health experience involves being a medical entomologist with the Ministry of Health of Malaysia. I held the post of State Entomologist for the state of Penang (1988-1995). I worked under the Vector-borne Disease Control Programme which looks at the epidemiology of the diseases and the control of the vectors for the five districts of the state.

My past medical research experience includes working as a research entomologist with the United States Army Medical Research Unit (USAMRU) at the Institute of Medical Research (IMR) of Malaysia (1986-1988)
