Mr Peng Seah completed his medical training at the Queen’s University of Belfast (UK) and graduated in 1987, after which he moved to Australia to continue his medical career. He developed his interest in cardiothoracic surgery whilst working at Prince Henry Hospital under cardiothoracic surgeon Dr David Newman and completed Basic Surgical Training in 1993. 

Advanced surgical training followed from 1994-2000 with rotations through St. Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne, and the Prince of Wales and Westmead Hospitals in Sydney.
