Dr Sim graduated from The University of Queensland in 2008 before progressing to internship and Junior House Officer positions at Caboolture, Redcliffe and The Prince Charles Hospitals.

In 2010, she started pathology training with SNP before rotating through a number of Brisbane laboratories including The Royal Brisbane Hospital, Princess Alexandra Hospital, The Mater Hospital and The Prince Charles Hospital where she developed an interest in lung pathology. While training as a registrar, she completed a six-month research posting at The University of Queensland Centre for Clinical Research in breast pathology under Professor Sunil Lakhani.
