Profile

Dr Felix Chan graduated from the University of New South Wales in 1986 with a Bachelor in Medicine and Surgery. After gaining experience in general medicine, surgery, emergency medicine and paediatrics he developed an interest in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. He received the Gold Medal for MRANZCOG examination in 1990 and was admitted to the Westmead Hospital Integrated Training Program. He was inspired by Professor Alex Crandon and Professor Roger Houghton (professors in gynaecological oncology) and became the first fellow in gynaecological oncology at the hospital. He has a keen interest in developing and applying surgery in this exciting field of medicine. In 1996 he spent his fellowship at King Edward Memorial Hospital, Perth, where he developed a keen interest in defining the role of laparoscopic surgery in gynaecological oncology. He had the opportunity to work with Professor Anthony J McCartney, Professor Ian Hammond and Dr Yee Leung, and in 1997 had the pleasure to work with Professor J Shepherd in St Bartholomew's Hospital, Royal Marsden and Royal London Hospitals in the UK. He gained proficiency and expertise in gynaecological surgery after attending a master class with D Queleu, D Dargent (France) and Prof John Monaghan (UK). Dr Chan currently works as Director in Gynaecological Oncology at Liverpool Hospital since 1998, treating women with gynaecological malignancies across the west zone of the Southwest Sydney Area Health Service. He is also co-joint lecturer for the University of NSW in O&G, and is involved in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students. He is a training supervisor for Liverpool Integrated Training Program, and has appointments at Westmead Private Hospital, Sydney Adventist Hospital, Sydney Southwest Private Hospital, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and The Hills Private Hospital. He was also nominee for Australasian of the year 2009 and 2011.
