Linh Ngo

Dr. Ngo received her medical degree from Hanoi Medical University, one of the best medical school in Vietnam in 2014. After graduation, she worked at Cardiovascular Centre, E Hospital, Vietnam for 2 years as a cardiologist. Besides taking care of patients with cardiovascular diseases, she was also passionate about heart rhythm disorders and was actively involved in many electrophysiology procedures including electrophysiology studies, arrhythmia ablations, and pacemaker implantations. She was awarded Australia Awards Fellowships in 2017, which enabled her to have six weeks of research-intensive study at the University of Sydney. Through this fellowship, she has developed a novel screening strategy for new-onset atrial fibrillation after cardiac surgery in Vietnam, and now being conducted in Vietnam. This study was partially funded by a grant from Hoc Mai Foundation. She is currently pursuing a PhD degree under the supervision of Prof. Robert Adams and Dr. Isuru Ranasinghe with a project about national-wide outcomes of catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation - the most commonly encountered arrhythmia in clinical practice. Her research interest is in cardiac arrhythmia, particularly atrial fibrillation.
