Dr Teoh Chin Sim is Senior Consultant and Clinical Director of the Sports and Exercise Medicine Centre at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
For almost 30 years, Dr Teoh has been the attending team physician to Singapore’s elite athletes at multiple major games, her most recent being Chief Medical Officer for Team Singapore at the 2019 South East Asia Games.
In her daily clinical practice and in the sporting arena, Dr Teoh cares for competitive and recreational athletes as well as people who simply enjoy exercising and keeping active. Indelibly impacted by her 19 days at the London 2012 Paralympics, her energies now extend to promoting sports and physical activity for the physically impaired and older persons, in addition to serving children and youth.
She is actively involved in women in sport, para sports and doping in sport, serving as a current or former member or chair of various committees under the auspices of the Singapore National Olympic Council, Singapore National Paralympic Council, Singapore Disability Sports Council, Antidoping Singapore, International Paralympic Committee and World Anti-Doping Agency. She also sits on the boards of the Singapore Sports School and Republic Polytechnic.
In 2019, Dr Teoh was awarded the Public Service Medal at the National Day Awards in recognition of her service to Team Singapore. Last year, she received the Healthcare Humanity Award for co-founding and pioneering a socially inclusive sports playgroup for disabled children with varying levels of physical ability.
