Update, 14th July 2020: Dr Masliza has come forward to clarify that she is not the first female associate professor at Oxford University. The honour in fact goes to Dr Phaik Yeong Cheah, who has been associate professor of Bioethics and Engagement at Oxford since 2016. 

While we may not be a global superpower on the likes of some other countries in Asia, there is still plenty to be proud of where being a Malaysian is concerned. From our incredibly rich heritage, to the panoply of food we have available in the country, and of course, the achievements of our own fellow Malaysians on the international stage.

And now, we have even more reason to be proud of our fellow Malaysians after it has been reported by Bernama that Dr Masliza Mahmod became the second Malaysian female associate professor to be working under Oxford University, one of the oldest and most well recognised tertiary institutions in the world.

Promoted to the role of Associate Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine just recently, the 47-year-old Batu Pahat native is also a member of the Steering Committee of the British Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (BSCMR) Heart Failure Research Task Force. In addition, she is also a member of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) from London, and holds a Master of Internal Medicine (MMed) from Malaysia and primary medical degree (MBChB) from Otago University, New Zealand.

Dr Masliza is Oxford University’s second Malaysian female associate professor, after Dr Phaik Yeong Cheah.

As you can see, Dr Masliza is truly a highly celebrated Malaysian in academia, and this is further bolstered by words from our very own Health Director-General, Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah who took to congratulating her over her new promotion.

“She is indeed a brilliant cardiologist and despite difficulties and challenges, her perseverance and deep passion in clinical research made her an outstanding academic cardiologist.

“There is no stopping her now to achieve greater heights. We are proud of her achievements…” he said in his Facebook post.

According to Oxford’s Radcliffe Department of Medicine, Dr Masliza will be focusing on research pertaining to the use of cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) and spectroscopy techniques to help in the early detection of cardiac abnormalities.

To Dr Masliza, we thank you for your contributions to society and salute you for being a shining representation of what Malaysians are!
