Lead for Radiology


Dr Gerald Tan graduated from the National University of Singapore Faculty of Medicine in 2001, and obtained his post-graduate qualification from the Royal College of Radiologists (UK) in 2007.

Gerald is a full-time clinical radiologist with Tan Tock Seng Hospital, with subspeciality interests in abdominal, head and neck, and functional imaging. He has garnered various professional awards beginning with the Singapore Radiological Society Young Radiologist Award in 2006, and culminating most recently with the prestigious Ministry of Health HDMP award for Molecular Imaging (PET-CT) in 2011.

Apart from clinical medicine, Gerald has a keen interest in information technology, in particular medical informatics. He oversees the hospital's Radiology Information System (RIS) and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), and is the webmaster of the Singapore Radiological Society.

Gerald has vast experience with medical teaching at all levels, ranging from undergraduate teaching at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine in NUS, to post-graduate teaching with the NHG-AHPL radiology residency program. He has also been training radiographers as an associate lecturer with the Parkway College of Nursing and Allied Health's BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography and Imaging programme since its inception.

As the module lead for Body Structures and Imaging, Gerald seeks to integrate clinical medicine and radiology with the basic anatomical sciences. By combining improved imaging techniques with advances in teaching methodology, this will allow learning of applied anatomy to take place in a setting relevant to modern clinical medicine.
