About this Event

Dr Tan Huey Jing completed her medical degree from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and graduated with a Masters’ degree in Psychological Medicine from University Malaya. An early career Psychiatrist with experience of working in various hospitals in Malaysia, Dr Tan has special interest in psychotherapy. She is an IPT Institute accredited Interpersonal Psychotherapy practitioner and is pursuing further training for certification in Schema Therapy from the International Society of Schema Therapy, Australia.

Besides that, Dr Tan has published various case reports in local and international journals and is also a reviewer for several journals.

Dr Tan was born into a close knitted family. Her father was a chemical engineer who had served the nation until retirement. Dr Tan’s career choice and pathway was very much influenced by her father’s exemplary service and dedication in the government sector.

Dr Tan's interest in psychology stemmed from a young age in which she believes understanding psychology is a great way to learn about ourselves and others while her interest in psychiatry grew during her undergraduate studies. She decided that psychiatry was her calling as it is a field that allows integration of medical knowledge and understanding of psychology to help others with psychiatry problems. Every now and then, enjoyed a good laugh at the amusing experience of being mystify as a mind reader when introduced as a psychiatrist at dinner parties.

Dr Tan is a strong believer of healthy work-life balance, as the saying goes, ‘There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither’ (Alan Cohen). Dr Tan plays the piano, practices yoga and enjoys travelling. She also participated yearly in ‘Running for a reason’ KL Marathon since 2015 to raise fund for the National Cancer Society of Malaysia.

Join us as we listen to Dr Tan detailing her foray into the field of Psychiatry and how you can become a Psychiatrist too! MMI Golden Tickets run out fast so grab your ticket now to avoid missing out on an opportunity not to be missed!
