Overview

Richard Lim, MBBS(Hons), MRCP(UK), MD, MPhil, FRCP(London), FESC, FACC, FCSANZ, a Full-Time Interventional Cardiologist at The Princess Alexandra Hospital Brisbane since July 1997 and Associate Professor of Medicine at The University of Queensland, graduated 1984 from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne UK, undertaking cardiology training and research degrees at St Bartholomew’s Hospital London (1989–94) then sub-specialty training at Royal Hull & East Yorkshire Hospitals (1994-96), gaining the UK Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST) in 1996. After a year acquiring expertise in coronary IVUS, pressure wire and atherectomy procedures as Senior Post-Doctoral Interventional Fellow at the University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore USA, he was appointed to The Princess Alexandra Hospital, a major tertiary teaching hospital in Australia, where he performed the first PCI in 1998. That same year, he became a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and in 1999 Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology. In 2009, he received the CIT Contribution Award in recognition of outstanding contribution and continuing dedication to the development of interventional cardiology in China. His research Doctorate and Masters whilst at Barts focussed on prognosis in coronary artery disease; this as well as quality improvement in percutaneous coronary intervention and STEMI management remain his major research interests.
