Dr Chan Kit Yee graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree in 1981 and obtained her Masters of Medicine (Paediatrics), Singapore, in 1986. She was conferred a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree by NUS for her thesis on cardiac dysrhythmias in children in 1996. Dr Chan received her sub-specialty training in paediatric cardiology from Royal Brompton & National heart Lung Hospital in London, UK where she was Clinical Research Fellow and Honorary Registrar, and The Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto, where she was a Clinical Fellow.
She is involved in Specialist Newborn Care, General Ambulatory Paediatrics and Paediatric Cardiology, for which she has a wide experience with non-invasive diagnostic and interventional therapeutic procedures. Her Paediatric Cardiology Practice provides general cardiac consultations (with ECG and Echocardiography facilities), counselling and management of children with congenital and acquired heart disease, cardiac arrhythmias, pre-operative and post-operative management of children with heart disease which requires surgical interventions.
“As a cardiologist managing patients with congenital heart disorders, some with long-term medical issues, it is essential to be empathetic and fully supportive, to help the patients and their parents cope with the long-term defects, to clearly map out and navigate them through the various treatment options.
As a paediatrician, I hope to use my medical expertise, inherent empathetic and sympathetic nature, to journey with parents to anticipate each stage of development and growth of their children; to wholistically work towards the betterment of their health, and with the right people skills and doctoring ethos to gain their trust and faith in me with their children’s health.”
Prior to joining SBCC Baby and Child Clinic, Dr Chan was a Consultant Paediatrician and Senior Lecturer with the Department of Paediatrics and the National University Hospital. Her extensive research on paediatric cardiology has been published widely in a number of local and international medical journals. She is a Fellow of the Academy of Medicine, a member of the Singapore Medical Association, Singapore Paediatric Society, and Singapore Cardiac Society.
