Dr. Ai-Lin Tiah
MB BCh BAO, MRCPI, MRCPCH, FRCPC
I graduated with a medical degree from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 2000. Upon graduation I did a rotating internship year, followed by 2 years of training in General Paediatrics. In the latter 2 years, I obtained the postgraduate qualifications of the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (MRCPI) and Membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (MRCPCH) from the UK.
I moved to Vancouver with my husband in 2003 and worked as a Clinical Trainee at BC Children’s Hospital for 2 years, before completing my pediatric residency with UBC in 2007.
I am a Clinical Assistant Professor with the Department of Pediatrics at UBC. I have been involved in teaching medical students and being an examiner for pediatric OSCE examinations.
I worked at several pediatric offices in the lower mainland before joining Fairmont Pediatrics in 2008. I work part time as a General Pediatrician with Fairmont Pediatrics. I also previously worked at St. Paul’s Hospital and B.C. Children’s Hospital as a consultant pediatrician.
When I am not working, I am either exercising, voluntering or being a full time mother to 2 school aged children.
I enjoy spending time with my family, baking sinful treats or creating something pretty with my sewing machine.
What do you love most about your job?
Watching my patients grow from newborns to happy and healthy children.
