Biographical details

Dr Venessa Tsang was appointed as a Senior Lecturer and Endocrinologist at the Sydney Medical School, Northern, based at Royal North Shore Hospital, in 2014. She completed her undergraduate medical degree at the University of New South Wales in 2003, and trained as an Endocrinologist at Royal North Shore Hospital and St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney, gaining her fellowship in 2010. She continues to practise clinical endocrinology at Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital as a Staff Specialist.

She obtained her PhD on the Molecular Pathogenesis of Phaeochromocytoma and Paraganglioma at the Cancer Genetics Unit at the Kolling Institute of Medical Research, University of Sydney, in 2015. Her work has been published and presented at international and national conferences. Her current research interests include the molecular biology and genetics of familial endocrine cancers and education,particularly phaeochromocytomas and paragangliomas, thyroid cancers, and endocrine complications of immunomodulator therapy..

She is involved with co-ordination of medical education at the Northern Clinical School and the speciality Endocrinology. She is one of the MD co-ordinators at Northern Clinical School and the Endocrine Assessment co-ordinator for the Sydney Medical Programme.
