Following her graduation from the National University of Singapore (MBBS, 1997) Dr Tan underwent basic training and then obtained her postgraduate surgical qualifications (MRCS Edinburgh, 2000). The following year she received her Masters in Medicine (Surgery) and was subsequently admitted as a Fellow of the Academy of Medicine of Singapore (Surgery) in 2005.

While there, Dr Tan was awarded the Sir Rodney Judson Prize at the University of Melbourne Research Meeting.
Prior to setting up her private practice, Dr Tan was a consultant with the Department of General Surgery at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. Contributing to the training of future surgeons is something Dr Tan values and in recognition of her efforts, she received the Tan Tock Seng Hospital Best Teacher Award 2006 – 2007. She still continues to serve as a Visiting Consultant there.
Her interest in teaching extends to medical students. She is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, where she is actively involved in the teaching of undergraduates and postgraduates.
With her keen interest in research, participating in several clinical and laboratory studies came naturally for Dr Tan. She has published articles in many international journals and has been an invited speaker at many local and international surgical meetings.
