NHAM has contributed to teaching and training in cardiology. It mooted the idea of the Sukaman Lecture, nominated Dr Charles Toh as the first recipient of this Award and Dr Nik Zainal as the second speaker. The NHAM was responsible for stimulating research in cardiology. It has organized several teaching seminars in echocardiography, coronary angioplasty, heart failure, cardiac pacing and electrophysiology.
NHAM is now a success story. It owes its success to many members who were willing to serve in the Council and sacrifice their time and effort. But success is a journey not a destination. It cannot end.
