Professional Statement

Dr Chan Kin Ming was awarded a PSC scholarship to study Medicine in King Edward VII College of Medicine, which was later renamed in 1982 to Faculty of Medicine, National University of Singapore.

Dr Chan Kin Ming graduated with MBBS (Singapore) in 1983 and developed a passion for internal medicine, and later geriatric medicine in Singapore.

Upon completion of his Masters in Internal Medicine in 1988, he did a short stint in the Blood Bank and Department of Haematology in SGH as Medical Officer (Specialist) as he completed his Masters in years instead of the usual 3 years. ... See more [ + ]In 1989, he went to Tan Tock Seng Hospital as a Registrar and was among the first few doctors to start the first Department of Geriatric Medicine in Singapore. 

Dr Chan Kin Ming was subsequently awarded the Health Manpower Development Plan for Geriatric Medicine (HDMP) in 1990 to further hone his skills in Geriatric Medicine. He was interned (as an Honorary Senior Registrar) at the Victoria Geriatric Unit of Victoria Infirmary in Glasgow. There, he was trained by Prof John Dall, a world leading authority in Geriatric Medicine and was the President of the European Geriatric Society. It was during his HMDP in Glasgow that he obtained his Diploma in Geriatric Medicine from the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians, Glasgow, in 1990.

Upon Dr Chan Kin Ming return to Singapore in 1991, he was asked to start the first Geriatric Centre and the first Geriatric Day Hospital in Singapore, the Alexandra Geriatric Centre at Alexandra Hospital where he remained ad Head of Department.
 
Dr Chan Kin Ming was elected as Fellow, Academy of Medicine in 1993 and received a Certificate of Specialist Registration in Geriatric Medicine in 1998. In 1998, he was seconded to head the Department of Geriatric Medicine at Changi General Hospital. He remained as Head of both departments until he resigned to start his private practice in 2000. By then, both departments had programmes and clinics running, and were popular choices for doctors to apply for training there.

While Dr Chan Kin Ming was at Alexandra Hospital, he received the Excellence in Teaching Award in 1998 and Excellence in Research and Publications Award in 1999.
