obtained his fellowship diploma in Surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons in Glasgow (FRCS). His exposure to
the excellent work of Singapore’s pioneering batch of paediatric surgeons at the Singapore General Hospital very
quickly attracted him to this challenging and demanding surgical specialty.

Paediatric Surgery by the Ministry of Health, Singapore. In 1999, he was awarded the Health Manpower

at the renowned St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Tennessee, USA.
​Upon his return, Dr Chui led the development of Paediatric Surgical Oncology in KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital
(KKH). He championed active collaboration among multi-centre and multidisciplinary groups that further enhanced
the standard of childhood cancer care in Singapore. Dr Chui has remained active in the international arena in
Paediatric Surgical Oncology, having served in the executive board of the International Society of Paediatric Surgical
Oncology for 10 years.
