Dr Ashraf completed his undergraduate medical training at The Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland in 2000. After 5 years of internal medicine training, he began his specialist training in Clinical Cardiology in 2005.
In 2007, Dr Ashraf joined the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital Dublin as a Clinical and Interventional Cardiology Specialist. The Mater Hospital is the National Heart and Lung Centre for Ireland, and is the tertiary referral centre for advanced, complicated and end-stage cardiac disease.
In 2010, Dr Ashraf was appointed as the first ever Interventional Fellow in Cardiology at the Mater Hospital. He would spend the next 3 years training in advanced interventional cardiology. His specialty is in Primary Angioplasty (the definitive treatment for Acute Myocardial Infarction), and complex coronary anatomy, including chronic occlusion of coronary arteries. He performs the majority of his cases through the radial artery of the wrist, which allows patients to mobilize earlier, and reduces the risk of major bleeding complications. Dr Ashraf looks forward to providing cutting edge Cardiology treatment to the residents of Kota Kinabalu and Sabah in general.
