Dr Hari Sugumar

FRACP, PHD


Dr Sugumar completed his medical degree though the University of Melbourne in 2005 and was admitted as a fellow to the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (FRACP) in 2010 and specialised in Cardiology through Austin Health in Melbourne, Australia.


Dr Sugumar sub-specialised in Electrophysiology (EP) and Cardiac devices, including cardiac re-synchronisation therapy, at Austin health prior to completing an advanced clinical fellowship in EP and Cardiac Devices in British Columbia, Canada.

He undertook a 3-year combined EP (including complex ablation techniques) and a PhD through the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute, University of Melbourne, Alfred Health and Royal Melbourne Hospitals. During this, he was awarded the prestigious combined NHRMC-NHF research fellowship, RACP JJ Billings award for excellence and the Nick Christopher PhD Scholarship at RMH for 2017-2020.

His research interests include Atrial Fibrillation (AF) ablation and the impact of AF in heart failure (reduced ejection fraction and preserved ejection fraction) and impact of gender on AF.

He has designed and executed international randomised controlled study and multiple multi-centre trials to assess the impact of catheter ablation in these conditions. He continues to present his research work at several local and international conferences. He has several publications in some of the world’s leading journals such as New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), The Lancet, Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC), Heart Rhythm and many more.

Dr Sugumar is very approachable and has been commended for his communication skills and patient cantered approach to providing care.

He is currently practicing at Alfred Health (Arrhythmia Clinic) and Cabrini Hospitals.
