Dr Nor Fadhilah has been with the University of Malaya since 1994 when she started her matriculation at Pusat Asasi Science followed by MBBS Degree in UM. She also completed her housemanship training in University Hospital (now UMMC) after which she continued her Master in Ophthalmology in UM and graduated in 2008.

She completed her full training in neuro-ophthalmology subspecialty in  Moorfields Eye Hospital and The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (Part of University College London) in the UK in 2012. Since then, as one of the three neuro-ophthalmologists in Malaysia, she provides her service to patients in UMMC, UMSC as well as patients from overseas like Singapore and Indonesia. As a consultant Ophthalmologist and Neuro-ophthalmologist, her main interest is in diseases affecting the afferent and efferent pathways of the visual system mainly the optic nerve. As the only neuro-ophthalmologist in UM, she hopes to provide subspecialty training to future candidates in this challenging field.

Apart from her clinical service, she has also been the coordinator for undergraduate program since after her Master graduation and had involved actively in curriculum review exercises and examinations.
