Dr Timothy Cheng Tsin Jien



Second Year Orthopaedic Surgery Trainee

Dr Timothy Cheng is a second year orthopaedic surgery trainee with the University of Malaya, currently finishing his out campus training in Hospital Queen Elizabeth, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah before returning to UM next year.

He translates his observations during his training to paper, writing to the papers and online media since his university days. A firm believer in speaking up, and standing up for what is right and true- which can be seen through this work that has been featured on The Star Newspaper on housemen dilemma and houseman-ship training.

Outside of the operating theatre, Dr Timothy spends a fair amount of time on functional athletics and driving into the jungles of Sabah for rural healthcare and infrastructure development, engaging in numerous relief missions and medical screenings to remote areas in South East Asia. On the 31stof August 2017, he hiked to the top of Mount Kinabalu with a group of 20 volunteers on the Klimb Kinabalu Fight Against Cancer organised by the National Cancer Council Malaysia, MAKNA.
