The Late Prof Dato’ Dr R. Mahathevan Scholarship


Dr Mahathevan pioneered the Occupational Health Unit at the Ministry of Health. With the passing years, he moved on to more general health management where he was the Deputy State Director in Selangor and Sabah, and then Director of Health in Melaka and finally in Pahang.

He was a great teacher and had the passion to pass down his vast knowledge in the academic field in Malaysia. He was appointed Professor of Community and Occupational Health; served in the Faculty of Medicine, at the International Islamic University, Melaka Manipal Medical College and did a short stint as Dean of School of Medicine at Masterskills University College of Health Sciences (MUCH). Dato’ Mahathevan had been a life member of MMA. He was active in the Public Health Society of MMA, and was its Chairman in the 90s. He was a fellow of the Academy of Medicine of Malaysia and served in the Chapter/College of Public Health Medicine.

As a proud son of Mr Rajadurai, a Hospital Assistant in Alor Setar, he firmly believed that education is the only avenue of social mobility. He had always spent his years encouraging people around him to pursue their education despite facing financial difficulties. He himself had indulged in continuous upgrading and self-learning to improve his knowledge. He has left behind a great legacy on the importance of education and the improvement of social mobility for those struggling with financial difficulties.

In Memory of Dato’ Dr R.Mahathevan and to continue with his legacy to aid teachers and students who show passion in teaching and learning;
