Vij completed his undergraduate and post graduate training in Perth after graduating from the University of Western Australia in 1995 with degrees of Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. He was awarded a Fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 2005.

He then undertook an Advanced Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship awarded by the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).

Vij was the first surgeon in Australia to complete this Fellowship.

Vij also undertook subspecialty training in hand surgery, paediatric reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery at several internationally renowned institutions in Melbourne, Australia and Toronto, Canada. 

In 2002 he was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for providing medical expertise and assistance to the victims of the Bali bombings at Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar, Bali. He was also jointly awarded the Australian Newspaper’s “Australian of the Year” – nominated by the Australian public and selected by the editorial committee for the Australian Newspapers.

Vij is a Consultant Specialist Plastic Surgeon, including cleft and palate surgery, at Perth Children’s Hospital.
