Dr. Queeny Yuen attained her Bachelor of Science degree specalising in animal science in 1996 from Nottingham University, UK. After a few years working in different roles in animal care in Hong Kong, she embarked on her doctorate degree research in male dolphin reproductive physiology at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and completed it in 2007. In 2013, she completed her post-graduate certificate in veterinary education with the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), UK and became a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Dr. Yuen began her career path working with and for animals as a veterinary assistant in small animal private practice and a laboratory animal assistant at Chinese University of Hong Kong. She later went on to become a veterinary technician and then assumed a conservation position, both at Ocean Park Corporation (HK) where she developed interests for research and dolphin reproduction. After her PhD, Dr. Yuen continued at PolyU to participate in interdisciplinary research in biomedical engineering that involved animals and humans. In 2009, she left to join the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, SPCA (HK), where she oversees the welfare operations of the organisation.
From 2010 to 2014 Dr. Yuen was a key staff member in the running of Hong Kong’s first BSc(Hons) in Veterinary Nursing programme, jointly taught and hosted by RVC and PolyU. She is very happy to see that the subject-specific / technical skills and generic qualities nurtured in this programme stand the graduates in good stead for their own career development in the animal and biosciences fields. In 2014, Dr. Yuen joined City University to continue her professional interest and focus in developing veterinary education.
