Dr Lim-Tio graduated from Melbourne University, winning the Jamieson Prize for Clinical Medicine. She trained as a clinical endocrinologist in Melbourne, before completing a PhD /postdoctoral research in glucocorticoid (steroid) and estrogen receptor action, the latter in the UK. Aside from her clinical roles as an endocrinologist, she has served as supervisor for intern training at Monash Medical Centre and as the specialist representative on the Medical and Allied Health Advisory Committee for the Jean Hailes Centre for Womens Health.

She has now moved to Sydney and is currently a senior staff specialist in the Department of Endocrinology at Westmead Hospital where she is the lead clinician in the Inpatient Diabetes Service, and an honorary senior lecturer at the University of Sydney. Her clinical interests include the management of endocrine diseases/diabetes in adolescents/young adults and in pregnancy, and endocrine cancers. Most importantly, Sylvia’s goal is to help to develop good patient care and understanding in conjunction with the rest of the treating team and the patient themselves, considering their current phase in life and future life goals.
