Dr. Vivien LimVerified

Endocrinologist in Tanglin, Singapore
Overview

Dr. Vivien Lim graduated from the National University of Singapore where she obtained her Master’s in Internal Medicine as well as her membership with the Royal College of Physicians (United Kingdom). In 2008, she completed her specialist training in endocrinology, which was followed by her specialist accreditation in Singapore. She then furthered her knowledge and trained at the Mayo Clinic in the United States (courtesy of the Health Manpower Development Plan scholarship by the Ministry of Health) where she handled complex endocrinology cases. While in the United States, she was also certified as a clinical densitometrist by the International Society of Clinical Densitometry.

She then returned to Singapore and served at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital and the Diabetes Centre where she was appointed to run general endocrinology clinics in addition to providing thyroid and fine needle aspiration cytology services. Dr. Lim also served as the director of the hospital’s endocrine residency programme and set up the adrenal and osteoporosis service as well as the hospital’s multi-disciplinary pituitary conference facility.

Dr. Lim is also recognized for her humanitarian efforts and actively participates in medical missions not just in Singapore but also in other countries. She participated in past medical missions to places such as Kenya, Sri Lanka (during the 2005 tsunami), and the Philippines (during Typhoon Haiyan in 2013) to offer care and comfort to the sick and infirm. For her passion for humanitarian causes, she now serves as the peer coordinator of Doctors Without Borders and was awarded the Healthcare Humanity Award in 2014.
