Dr Angela Pang is a Senior Medical Oncologist at OncoCare Cancer Centre and a visiting consultant at the National University Cancer Institute of Singapore (NCIS). Her main clinical interests are gastrointestinal cancers, bone/soft tissue sarcomas, breast cancer, and cancers in older adults.

She obtained her undergraduate degree from the School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS). Thereafter, she obtained her postgraduate qualifications – Masters in Medicine (Internal Medicine) from NUS, and her Membership in the Royal College of Physicians (UK). Subsequently, she went on to complete her advanced specialist training in Medical Oncology at the National University Hospital (NUH), Singapore, and was awarded the NCIS research scholarship for her Sarcoma Research Fellowship with Professor Robert G Maki in the Tisch Cancer Institute, Mount Sinai Hospital at New York City, USA.

With a specific interest in the optimisation of care for elderly cancer patients, Dr Pang further pursued a Graduate Diploma in Geriatric Medicine with the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (YLLSOM-NUS). To integrate her expertise in both Geriatrics and Oncology, she also trained in Geriatric Oncology with Dr Beatriz Korc and Dr Stuart Lichtman at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, in New York City, USA.

She founded the first Geriatric Oncology Longitudinal End to End (GOLDEN) program in Singapore, focusing on providing optimal cancer care to the elderly. The GOLDEN program available in NUH and NTFGH has improved the outcomes in thousands of older adults with cancer, with dedicated care from a specialised Geriatric Oncology team.
