In 2004, whilst still pursuing her subspecialty training in Endocrinology, Dr Chia was given a research fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, USA. During this one and a half year period, she conducted research on blood markers for the diagnosis and management of thyroid cancer, for which she was awarded the Merlin Bumpus Young Researcher Award (2nd prize) by the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Upon her return to Singapore, she completed the rest of her Endocrinology fellowship in 2007, and was admitted as a Fellow of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore.

She is the only endocrinologist outside of the United States so far to receive the specialist credential Endocrine Certification in Neck Ultrasound (ECNU) from the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE). This rigorous credential is only awarded to endocrinologists who have satisfied a high standard for performing thyroid and neck ultrasounds, as well as ultrasound-guided biopsies of thyroid nodules.
