PROFESSOR YING CHEONG
Ying is the Professor of Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at the University of Southampton. She is also the Medical Director for Complete Fertility, Southampton.
I was born in the wonderful city of Singapore. But in my teens, travelled to Dublin, where I studied Medicine at Trinity College before settling in the United Kingdom for my medical training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I was awarded an M.D. and MRCOG in 2003 and attained dual accreditation for subspecialty training in Reproductive Medicine and the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCST) in 2008. I was appointed Senior Lecturer at the University of Southampton in the same year, and in 2016, was awarded the Chair in Reproductive Medicine.
I currently run Complete Fertility as the Medical Director and the Responsible Officer. I co-founded Complete Fertility in 2009, now part of Virtus Health Group. Alongside this, I am a non-executive director at Vivoplex Medical.
My philosophy in life is simple:
'To learn to bend like the bamboo, bend but don’t break, be flexible but yet remain firmly grounded. You can be defeated, but always spring back. Be resourceful but always embrace simplicity'
