3. Experience

Dr Yap Chin Kong is a Specialist and Senior Consultant in Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endoscopy with 25 years of experience.

In 1983, he graduated with his MBBS from National University of Singapore, followed by his Masters degree in Medicine (Singapore) in 1988. He then became a Member of the Royal College of Physicians (United Kingdom), a Fellow of the Academy of Medicine (Singapore) in 1994 and a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (Edinburgh) in 2000. In 1992, he was awarded the Health Manpower Development Program Award by the Ministry of Health to pursue advanced training in therapeutic ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography) at the Academic Medical Centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Dr Yap returned in 1993 to develop endoscopy further at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) until he left for private practice in 2004. He pioneered the use of endoscopic ultrasonography at SGH for a decade. He even taught many generations of medical students and post-graduate doctors from around the South-East Asia region. In 2002, he continued to pursue his interest in early cancers of the stomach and colon and visited the Showa University Hospital in Yokohama, and the National Cancer Centre in Tsukiji, Tokyo.

His contributions to the field can be seen as he has lectured and taught at workshops locally and internationally, combining the best of Western and Eastern techniques. He also developed an innovative cap-fitted gastroscopy technique that is used to help countless patients worldwide. He was President of the Gastroenterological Society of Singapore (1999 to 2003) and was President of the Asia-Pacific Digestive Week in 2003.
