Lin became the first woman hired as a resident physician in the PUMC hospital. In 1932, after she had served as a general resident physician for a year, PUMC sent her to Manchester Medical College and London Medical College's Gynecologic and Obstetric Hospital as a visiting scholar, and the following year to Vienna. In 1939, Lin went to Chicago University Medical School to continue her research. (She used the name Lim Kah T'I for research publications.) After she finished her study in 1940, she was granted honorary membership in several U.S. scientific associations, but she turned down offers to remain in the United States.
