She was also a specialist trainer for the Next Generation Electronic Medical Records (NGEMR) system where she trained the department and ensured a smooth and successful transition.
Dr Tseng’s clinical research has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Physics (IJROBP), International Journal of Gynecological Cancer, British Journal of Surgery and Blood Journal. She has also presented her work at international conferences in Australia and North America. She was also invited to contribute a book chapter in a popular Radiation Oncology textbook “Target Volume Delineation and Field Setup”.
