Overview

Dr Irene Chan is a graduate of the National University of Singapore and has worked in paediatric units in Singapore General Hospital (SGH), National University Hospital (NUH) and KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH). She has more than 25 years of clinical experience in paediatrics. With her passion in caring for the critically ill, she became one of the first pioneers to be trained in paediatric intensive care in Singapore. Her training in intensive care was at the renowned Harvard’s Children’s Hospital in Boston. She then returned to establish Singapore’s first Children’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in KKH in 1997, becoming the first Head of the ICU from 1997 to 2003. Thereafter, she led the Department of Paediatrics in KKH from 2003 to 2006 as Head, before starting private practice. In 2003, Dr Chan was one of the first to volunteer to care for the children affected by the then unknown epidemic - SARS. For that work and many others, she became one of the first doctors to be awarded the Healthcare Humanity award in 2006.


With her keen interest in teaching, Dr Chan has also played a major role in establishing Paediatric Resuscitation protocols and training in Singapore, and was involved in setting guidelines for such training in the National Resuscitation Council. She is presently still very active in teaching paediatric resuscitation to undergraduates, doctors and nurses both in NUH and KKH. She is also an instructor to the Advanced Paediatric Life Support and Fundamental Critical Care Courses in Singapore.

Our Specialist has given numerous public presentations and lectures at local, regional and international meetings and conferences, and has written and edited handbooks on paediatrics and resuscitation as well as papers in scientific journals. Dr Chan was also involved in helping to establish better critical care to children all around the world when she was Board Member of the World Federation of Paediatric Critical and Intensive Care Societies from 2004 to 2007.

Besides training and teaching local doctors and nurses, Dr Chan has also been actively involved in training paediatrics in other countries like Cambodia, China and Myanmar in collaboration with various NGOs. She has also taught in countries like India, Vietnam and Mauritius. She was awarded for such work by the Singapore Volunteer Overseas, Singapore International Foundation in 2007.

Dr Chan enjoys her work as she loves children and believes that it is not only physical health that is important, but social, emotional and mental development that are needed to make a happier and healthier child.

My daughter is seeing Dr Irene Chan. She is very motherly and has 4 kids of her own. Dr Chan is very experienced and is fair in her judgement. She is patient and will explain conditions very clearly to parents.
