Sze graduated with her medical degree from The University of Melbourne in 1995. Whilst still a medical student at the Mercy Hospital for Women, Sze discovered her love for the practice of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. In order to widen her experience, she subsequently traveled to Ireland to study and work at the prestigious National Maternity Hospital in Dublin, Ireland.
As a young graduate, she was an Intern and Medical Officer at the Austin Hospital, which provided her great grounding in both medicine and surgery. Her specialist training in obstetric and gynaecology was initiated at the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, and subsequently completed in Box Hill Hospital. Following this, she was appointed as Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist to Box Hill Hospital, an affiliated Monash University Hospital.

Maintaining an active lifestyle which includes a run several times a week, she then indulges in her other passion...food! During the year, she also participates in many fun runs which support various women’s health charities close to her heart, among which include the Hamlin Fistula Foundation, Breast and Ovarian Cancer Research and Walk for Prems.
