Ms Maggie Lee is a recipient of MOH Holdings’ Health Science and Nursing Scholarship for Podiatry.  After graduating with a Bachelor of Podiatry with Honours from the Queensland University of Technology, she pursued her passion for podiatry, developing a profound interest in musculoskeletal biomechanics, rehabilitation, and the management of high-risk foot conditions, particularly focusing on pediatric patients.

Ms Lee is a dynamic podiatrist renowned for her multifaceted approach to foot and ankle care across various medical settings. With a diverse skill set and a passion for interdisciplinary collaboration, Ms Lee excels in providing comprehensive treatment to patients at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (NTFGH) and National University Polyclinics (NUP).

In her role at the acute hospital, Ms Lee worked closely with Vascular and Orthopedic surgeons to address complex foot and ankle conditions. Drawing on her expertise in podiatric medicine, she plays a pivotal role in the management of cases involving arterial insufficiency, venous insufficiency, Charcot foot deformity and post-amputation ulcers. Through collaborative consultations, bedside debridement and offloading interventions, Ms Lee ensures that patients receive optimal care tailored to their individual needs, with a focus on restoring function and enhancing quality of life.

In addition to her work in the hospital setting, Ms Lee was seconded to polyclinics, where she focuses on skin and nail management and musculoskeletal conditions. Here, she serves a diverse patient population, ranging from dermatological and pathological toenails to pediatric patients requiring care for developmental foot deformities and sports-related injuries. With a compassionate and patient-centred approach, Ms Lee delivers personalized treatment plans that address the unique needs of each individual, promoting healing and preventing future complications.


With a huge interest in science, Ms Maggie Lee pursued a Diploma in Biomedical Science at Singapore Polytechnic after completing her secondary school education.

During her student internship at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, she found herself captivated by the intricate workings of healthcare and the hospital environment. Witnessing the dedicated clinicians, the dynamic challenges, and the impact on patients sparked a profound interest in her. This experience fueled her passion, steering her towards a career as a clinician, driven by the desire to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.

When Ms Lee was still deciding which healthcare career she should pursue, she had the privilege of shadowing podiatrists at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. Witnessing their expertise in managing diabetic foot ulcers, including skilled debridement and implementing offloading techniques, left a lasting impression on her. The hands-on approach to healing wounds and preventing complications for high-risk patients intrigued her, ultimately influencing her decision to pursue a career in podiatry.
