“The award recognises Dr Jeevaratnam’s outstanding research in the field of cardiac physiology.”

Dr Kamalan Jeevaratnam, Head of Department of Veterinary Pre-clinical Sciences at the University of Surrey, has been awarded an RCVS Fellowship.

Given the honour for his “meritorious contributions to knowledge,” Dr Jeevaratnam is one of only 38 surgeons to join the RCVS Fellowship in 2021. 

Commenting on his honour, Dr Jeevaratnam said: “As a clinician scientist, the Fellowship to me is a recognition of the knowledge in cardiology built over more than 10 years with the support of some amazing collaborators and colleagues around the world. 

“The One Health and interdisciplinary nature of what we do as a team continues to inspire me and I hope to continue this work. 

“I am looking forward to establishing more collaborations locally and international to continue my learning in hope that we can make further contributions in the field of veterinary and human cardiology.”

Professor Chris Proudman, Head of Surrey's School of Veterinary Medicine added: “I am delighted that Dr Jeevaratnam has been named as one of a small number of veterinary surgeons to be awarded Fellowship of the RCVS. 

“The award recognises Dr Jeevaratnam’s outstanding research in the field of cardiac physiology, work that makes important contributions to both human and animal health. 

“As a successful Malaysian veterinary graduate now working in the UK, this award also recognises Dr Jeevaratnam’s leadership of diversity within the veterinary profession.”

Dr Jeevaratnam, along with the other veterinary surgeons awarded the honour, will be formally welcomed to the RCVS Fellowship in an online ceremony on 7 October.
