Special Interests

Dr Peter Tan specialises in haematological oncology, and general haematological
conditions including obstetric haematology, bleeding and clotting disorders. He
consults at Western Haematology & Oncology Clinics and Royal Perth Hospital.

He understands that blood disorders are often complex and prioritises the provision of
comprehensive and clear explanations. A new diagnosis may often cause a level of
stress and uncertainty for patients and their families, therefore he plans to demystify
the process of investigations and therapeutic options.

Dr Tan obtained his medical degree from the University of Western Australia (UWA)
and commenced training at Royal Perth Hospital. Dr Tan completed his specialist
training in haematology and bone marrow transplantation at St Vincent’s Hospital,
Sydney. He obtained specialist qualifications in clinical and laboratory haematology
from the RACP and RCPA. Dr Tan held the position of the Kefford Leukaemia
Research Fellow at the Alfred Hospital, Melbourne, for three years.

He is a principal investigator for clinical trials at the Perth Blood Institute (PBI) and at
Royal Perth Hospital. He has also obtained research grants from the WA Cancer and
Palliative Care Network (WACPN) and RPH Medical Research Fund (MRF) for research
in co-operation with Cell and Tissue Therapies WA (CTTWA).

Dr Tan maintains an interest in the safe use of blood transfusion products and is a
member of the RPH Blood Transfusion Committee. He is a member of the RPH Drug
and Therapeutics Committee (DTC) that evaluates novel therapies. He supervises
physician and haematology specialist trainees and lectures medical students at
UWA. He is a haematopathologist at Western Diagnostics Pathology and is the
current Chair of the Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) for Western Haematology &
Oncology Clinics.
