Dr Tee Beng Keng is a consultant haematologist and Pathologist-in-Charge of Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology’s Haematology Department, Brisbane.
After graduating in Medicine with First Class Honours from The University of NSW in 1992 Dr Keng completed his medical internship at the Prince of Wales Hospital, Sydney before working as resident/registrar at the John Hunter Hospital, Newcastle. He returned to the Prince of Wales Hospital to undertake specialist training in haematology with the final year spent at The Mater Hospital, Brisbane. On completion in 2001, he was awarded Fellowships of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia.
Dr Keng joined SNP in 2002 where he further developed his expertise across all areas of haematology. He was also visiting clinical haematologist at Nambour Hospital between 2002 and 2017.
He is active in helping to maintain professional standards in haematology and he serves as a member of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia Quality Assurance Program Haematology Morphology Committee. He is also involved in training haematology registrars rotating through SNP as a formal part of their course. He has memberships of the Haematology Society of Australia and New Zealand; the Australian Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis; and the International Society for Laboratory Haematology.
He is particularly interested in the harmonisation of haematology reporting to achieve reproducible, clinically useful reports and is an active member of the International Council for Standardization in Haematology (ICSH), the organisation responsible for developing guidelines and recommendations.
Dr Keng enjoys the holistic nature of haematology – a discipline that spans both clinical care and diagnostic investigation. He gains particular professional satisfaction from the opportunity it gives to be involved in a patient’s care from their first presentation through to diagnosis and treatment.
