  • Dr Lee graduated from University of Cambridge, UK in 1987. He was a scholar at Jesus College,Cambridge, where he received the Duckworth Prize. Dr Lee has also received a scholarship from the Kuok Foundation, Malaysia, for furthering his medical studies. He performed his surgical housemanship with Professor Sir Roy Calne (one of the pioneers in liver transplantation) at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. This was followed by further training in internal medicine at Cambridge and he obtained his MRCP (London) in 1990. Subsequent to this, Dr Lee joined the Department of Medicine, National University Hospital (NUH), Singapore, and underwent further training in Intensive Care and Respiratory Medicine. This continued with a two-year Critical Care Fellowship at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, USA – the leading centre for liver transplantation in the world – under Professor Thomas Starzl and Professor John Fung, where he was awarded Fellow of the Year.
  • Dr Lee is currently a Respiratory physician in Gleneagles Hospital. Prior to that, he had joined the National University Singapore (NUS) as a Lecturer in the Department of Medicine. He became an Associate Professor of Medicine and Senior Consultant, and Director of Medical Intensive Care Unit. He was also one of the founding members for the Society of Intensive Care Medicine in Singapore. During this period, he has published many articles on respiratory related issues (especially pneumonia), ICU issues, health outcomes, liver cirrhosis and transplantation. He has contributed various book chapters as well, and is the current editor for the Acute Medicine Handbook. He has lectured in many international, regional, and local meetings on ICU, respiratory, renal, infectious diseases, and transplantation. He has been funded by NMRC, Singapore Cancer Society and the medical industry for his research efforts. Research collaborations are ongoing with NUS investigators including a cross-faculty research programme on decision support which is funded by IDA, and TEC. This is related to collaboration with an NIH decision support group led by Professor Alan Morris at LDS Hospital, Utah, on glucose-insulin computer decision support system.
  • Dr Lee started the liver dialysis programme at NUH and was the lead investigator in a MOH-sponsored programme that subsidised and evaluated the role of MARS® liver dialysis over a four-year period. Dr Lee had also been active in medical undergraduate education as part of his role in NUS and was responsible for bringing medical simulation training to the undergraduates and the establishment of a combined NUH-NUS simulation centre using SimMan®. He is still involved with postgraduate training and is currently a member in the two specialist training committees under the School of Postgraduate Medicine, NUS: Respiratory Medicine and Critical Care Medicine. His clinical interests include critical care and liver transplant.
  • In addition to liver failure and pneumonia, Dr Lee also treats conditions like severe sepsis with multi-organ failure, ventilator-dependent patients and provides post-liver transplant care.
