Dr Harshan Jeyakumar

Lung and Sleep Physician

I am a dual-trained Respiratory & Sleep and Acute & General Medicine Physician working in South-East Melbourne and Gippsland. I have special interests in lung cancer diagnosis and staging, pleural disease, sleep disorders, and bronchiectasis.

I pride myself on educating patients to make informed decisions about their health, while devising individualised management plans to achieve their goals.

Having graduated from Monash University in 2013, I completed my internship and Basic Physician Training through Monash Health in 2018. I proceeded to accept a four-year dual training position in Respiratory and General Medicine through both Monash Lung & Sleep and Latrobe Regional Hospital, receiving Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in 2020. I have completed post-fellowship training in Acute & General Medicine (LRH) and a 12-month Sleep & Ventilation Fellowship (Monash Health). I have been awarded numerous prizes through my training, including Monash Health’s John Burgess Prize for Clinical Excellence as a Medical Registrar.

I now hold substantial public appointment through Monash Health with subspecialty expertise in Pleural Diseases and Cystic Fibrosis, whilst also coordinating Lung Lesion Diagnostics and Severe Asthma services through Latrobe Regional Hospital. Privately, I consult inpatients at Jessie McPherson Private Hospital and Cabrini Hospital: Malvern, and outpatients through Lung & Sleep.

Outside of medicine, I am a sports fanatic, supporting the Brisbane Lions, Liverpool FC, and New Zealand cricket and rugby teams. I enjoy spending time with my wife, Anisha, and spoodle, Ella, and enjoying the various cuisines of Melbourne.
