SHE may be just starting her medical career, but Cleo Wee believes education company Kumon has given her the skill-set so succeed in the world of surgery.

The first year Curtin University medical student credits the program, which she completed at Kumon Canning Vale Education Centre, for helping instil a strong work ethic in her.

Miss Wee said Kumon instilled the discipline and self-motivation she would need to succeed as a surgeon and the program was flexible enough to challenge her in multiple ways.

“It is one of the main reasons why my work ethic is what it is today and for that I am very grateful,” she said.

“You can progress on to the next stage or spend extra time revising difficult concepts, the program is adaptable, which really helps bring out the best in each student.”

The former Perth Modern student said she was inspired to study surgery after going under the knife herself a few years ago.

“I really admired the way my doctor treated myself and other patients with the utmost compassion, empathy and respect”, she said.

“I was also blown away by his leadership skills, and the way he guided his team of interns and registrars.”
