Quan obtained his medical degree from the University of Queensland and completed his medical oncology training in Queensland. Following admission to the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) as a medical oncologist, Quan completed a clinical research fellowship at the prestigious Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne Australia. The fellowship was focused within the genitourinary, gynaecological, and head and neck tumour streams and provided experience with early drug development (phase 1) and phase 3 clinical trials.
