Dr Michael Wong is currently Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology at Western Health and has been the recipient of numerous national and international awards for his novel basic and clinical research as a Cardiologist & Electrophysiologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. He obtained his Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree from the University of Melbourne and undertook clinical training at the Austin, Alfred and Royal Melbourne Hospitals. He subsequently completed his Doctorate as a clinical PhD research fellow in Cardiac Electrophysiology under the mentorship of Professor Jonathan Kalman and Dr Joseph Morton at Royal Melbourne Hospital and the University of Melbourne. His PhD research thesis reported novel findings on predictors, mechanisms and contemporary epicardial ablation techniques for lethal cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death in non-ischaemic, ischaemic cardiomyopathy and chronic kidney disease. He is a National Heart Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow / Senior Research Fellow with the University of Melbourne and is responsible for the clinical supervision and training of medical students, junior medical doctors and trainee cardiologists. Michael specialises in cardiac device implantation (leadless pacemakers, defibrillators, cardiac resynchronisation therapy) and treatment of complex atrial and ventricular arrhythmias using contemporary catheter ablation techniques while maintaining an active interest in clinical research with his work receiving multiple accolades including the prestigious Ralph Reader prize from the co-hosted Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand/World Congress of Cardiology Scientific Sessions, the Young Investigator Award from North American Heart Rhythm Society and the Young Investigator Award from the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology/Renal Society of Australasia. He is the recipient of multiple awards from the National Heart Foundation of Australia including the Keith Goldsbury Award Postgraduate Scholarship, Vanguard Research Grant, Heart Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and the Heart Foundation Paul Korner Innovation Award (for the most successful innovative postdoctoral fellowship application in 2017). Michael is happy to take referrals across the spectrum of cardiac rhythm disorders through the cardiac arrhythmia clinics at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and Western Health or in his private consulting rooms in Epworth Richmond and Box Hill. He also offers consultations in Cantonese and Mandarin.
