Dr Chen Ching Kit completed his undergraduate medical studies at the National University of Singapore and post-graduate training in paediatrics and paediatric cardiology at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Singapore. He subsequently did a fellowship in paediatric heart failure and heart transplantation at the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada.
