Assistant Professor Lin Weiqin is presently a Consultant with the Department of Cardiology, National University Heart Centre, Singapore.
Asst. Prof. Lin graduated with Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery from the National University of Singapore in 2008. He completed his Basic Specialist Training in Internal Medicine and was conferred the Master of Medicine in Internal Medicine from the National University of Singapore, and Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (United Kingdom) in 2011. Thereafter, he completed his cardiology training in the National University Heart Centre, Singapore in 2015.
He was awarded the Healthcare Manpower Development Plan (HMDP) in 2017 and completed a year of fellowship training in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, USA. Over the course of the fellowship, he was trained in the management of acute heart failure with temporary mechanical circulatory support, as well as caring for advanced heart failure patients with implanted durable left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) or heart transplantation. Upon returning to Singapore, his main aim has been to provide state-of-the-art care for patients living with heart failure through a multi-disciplinary approach.
Besides heart failure, his other subspecialty interests include cardiomyopathies and echocardiography. He performs right heart catheterisation, cardiac biopsy and trans-oesophaegeal echocardiography as part of his practice.
Asst. Prof. Lin is also active in clinical research and medical education. He has published articles in peer-reviewed journals and presented abstracts in international scientific meetings. He holds the concurrent appointment of Assistant Professor in the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore.
