Meet Dr Samuel Ho
Looking for a passionate Cosmetic Physician?
Dr. Sam is the latest addition to Cosmos Clinic Canberra and has brought with him vast international experience. Originally from New Zealand, Dr. Sam graduated from the University of Otago School of Medicine (NZ) in 2001. Having extensive medical and surgical experience, Dr. Sam has worked at multiple places within Australasia including New Zealand, Western Australia, Tasmania and Canberra. Starting his medical career back home in New Zealand, he was first a Medical Registrar in the hospitals of Wellington and Canberra. Upon moving to Australia in 2006, he expanded his skill set into the challenging realm of Intensive Care where he also worked in remote regions of Western Australia such as Kalgoorlie. Here he mastered the art of intensive care in a rural setting, a priceless experience to have in any medical field.
Dr Sam’s foray into cosmetic medicine started due to an appreciation of natural beauty and how science can complement this. His passion for the industry allowed him to combine his intensive care skills with minimally invasive aesthetic techniques, to accomplish beautifully natural results.
Prior to becoming a Cosmetic Physician, Dr Sam provided multiple contributions in the arena of education and research. In terms of education, Dr. Sam has contributed towards undergraduate eLearning at the University of Otago by designing and digitizing both medical and Pathohistology photos to form the basis of computer based tutorials for students in his alma mater. He has also participated in research where he was part of a supervised clinical audit in 2012/2013 examining the levels of Vitamin D among hospitalized patients and its correlation with recovery of orthopaedic patients post-surgically.
Dr Sam is an asset to Cosmos Clinic with his gentle charisma and natural surgical finesse. Being personally trained by the renowned cosmetic physician Dr Ajaka, Dr Sam’s calm and caring style has led to a steady build-up of clientele. Dr Sam believes in personalising natural beauty to boost confidence and self-esteem.
Dr Sam will be permanently based in Cosmos Clinic, Canberra along with Medical Director, Dr Christopher Lee.
