Biosketch

Assistant Professor Pipin Kojodjojo is a Senior Consultant at the National University Heart Centre, Singapore. He graduated from St. Bartholomew’s and Royal London Hospital Medical School, University of London in 1998 and has been a member of the Royal College of Physicians since 2001. He underwent training in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology at St. Mary’s Hospital, Imperial College London, UK and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA.

Prior to joining the National University Hospital, he was a Consultant and Clinical Senior Lecturer in Cardiac Electrophysiology at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London, UK.

Asst. Prof. Kojodjojo participates in clinical research with an emphasis on applying techniques and therapies to optimize catheter ablation and device-based treatment of complex cardiac arrhythmias. He has been awarded several nationally competitive research grants. In 2005, he was conferred his Ph.D. in clinical cardiac electrophysiology from Imperial College London for his research on atrial fibrillation. He performs simple and complex electrophysiology procedures including catheter ablation and device implantation. He is accredited by the International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners as a Clinical Cardiac Devices Specialist, as a Fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society, American College of Cardiology and European Society of Cardiology. 

He is the Director of Cardiology at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital and is actively involved in the NUHS Pulmonary Embolism Response Team.
