ProfileDr Angeline Yong is a visiting consultant dermatologist at Thomson Medical Centre with over 15 years in medical practice. She graduated with top honours from the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2005, where she was awarded the Eli-Lily Gold Medal and the Class of 1975 book prize for obstetrics and gynaecology.She subsequently completed her specialist training as a dermatologist at NSC, and was awarded her Certificate of Specialist Accreditation in Dermatology by the Ministry of Health (MOH) in 2013. Her accolades include the Healthcare Humanity Award (2011) for her overseas humanitarian work, and the National Skin Centre Service Champion Gold Award (2012) for exemplary patient care.
Dr Yong was previously awarded a Health Manpower Development Programme Scholarship to pursue a year-long fellowship at the world-renowned St John’s Institute of Dermatology (London) where she was trained in Mohs Micrographic Surgery and cutaneous reconstruction alongside other dermatologic surgery and laser procedures. This was followed by a second fellowship at the prestigious Mount Sinai Hospital (New York), where Dr Yong underwent further sub-specialty training in Hair Transplantation, Cosmetic and Procedural Dermatology. Having completed dual fellowships in UK and USA, she is registered to practise medicine by the UK’s General Medical Council (GMC), the Singapore Medical Council (SMC), and licensed by the USA’s Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), making her one of only a handful of doctors in Singapore registered to practice medicine across three continents. Dr Yong has also completed a Master’s in Public Health with Harvard University.
Beyond her numerous professional memberships in international and local dermatology societies, Dr Yong was the first Singaporean dermatologist with the requisite fellowship training to join the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS), the leading American body that regulates fellowship-trained Mohs micrographic surgeons.
With her expertise in the medical treatment of hair loss and surgical restoration, Dr Yong set up and led the hair transplantation service at National Skin Centre (NSC). She has in-depth expertise in all aspects of dermatological surgery, from laser surgery, hair transplant surgery, and Mohs Micrographic Surgery. She was also the only dermatologist that was dual-accredited to perform both Mohs Micrographic Surgery and hair transplantation in the National Skin Centre. In addition, her prior position as a key member of the dermatologic surgery and laser division in NSC, and her extensive global training in both Asian and Caucasian skin types has allowed her to develop her skills in using various laser modalities to treat various skin types.
Besides her medical expertise, Dr Yong is also an avid educator. She is currently the NSC-Dermatological Society Singapore (DSS), Certificate of Competency (COC) trainer in the domains of botulinum toxins and filler injections. She also regularly contributes to and reviews international journals, and is a key opinion leader in the cosmetic and laser dermatology fields. Her areas of research include anti-ageing medicine, skin cancer management and imaging, hair disorders, dermatological surgery and lasers.
After having spent more than 15 years in public service, Dr Yong believes in the practice of complete top-to-toe skin care, and comprehensive cosmetic and surgical dermatology. She does not believe in a fixed standard of beauty; instead she uses her trained artistic eye and scientific mind to offer her patients natural-looking enhancements that stay true to their own individuality and lifestyle needs.
