Clin Asst Prof Tina Koh obtained her medical degree from National University of Singapore in 2004. After housemanship, during her medical officer rotation, she developed a keen interest in Cardiothoracic Surgery. Hence she began her advanced surgical training in Cardiothoracic Surgery in the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS). After completion of her training and received a gold medal for her specialist exit examinations, she decided to pursue further in Thoracic Surgery.

Upon her return she work at the National Cancer Centre (NCC) as an Associate Consultant doing Thoracic surgery and became a Senior Consultant.
