Dr Kho graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, and worked at the National University Hospital (NUH) in Singapore before continuing her specialist postgraduate training in medical oncology at the Sydney Cancer Centre, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, (now known as Chris O’brien Lifehouse) under the mentorship of Professors Michael Boyer, Stephen Clarke and Alan Coates. She obtained her fellowship from the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (FRACP) in 2003.
Her interest in translational research in search of personalised cancer treatments, led her to work at Genome Institute of Singapore under Prof Edison Liu from 2002 to 2003. She subsequently obtained a Master of Philosophy (Medicine) from the University of Sydney with a research thesis entitled “Optimising Adjuvant Treatment for Colorectal Cancer”.
Dr Kho returned to Sydney in 2005 and was appointed Head of the Department of Medical Oncology in Liverpool Hospital, a public university hospital in Sydney. She was also the Director of the clinical trials unit and a clinical lecturer during this time. In 2009, she decided to join a private practice at the Sydney Adventist Hospital to allow her more time to pursue her academic interests. At the same time, she was also a visiting scientist at the Garvan Institute of Research in Sydney.
In 2010, Dr Kho returned home to Singapore (having missed Singaporean Laksa) and has since continued to dedicate her efforts to deliver world-class treatment and care with Gleneagles Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Hospitals as a Senior Consultant in Medical Oncology.
