College believes in a holistic approach to learning and development of our
Professionals for Tomorrow’s Healthcare through an integration of formal,
social, experiential and work-based activities.
Professionals for Tomorrow's Healthcare
To guide our
education curriculum and train our healthcare workforce in alignment with
principles for a 21st century health system, NHG has envisioned a conceptual
framework of the attributes of the Professional for Tomorrow’s Healthcare (PTH)
– a person who would contribute optimally to healthcare in future. The PTH
model, which was modified from a similar model by Sir Michael Barber (UK),
reads as follows:
Chew, N. W. M., Teo,
W. L., Lim, W. S., Ng, Y. P. L. & Tham, K. Y. The Professional for
Tomorrow’s Healthcare: A Model for Healthcare in the 21st Century.
supporting and facilitating inter-professional collaborations and quality of
care delivery, NHG College believes in adopting an inter-professional learning
approach in our programmes, where clinicians, administrators and ancillary
staff are brought together to learn with and from each other.
70:20:10 Model recognizes that learning occurs through various modes and means,
beyond training in the classroom. Therefore to ensure that learning occurs and
applied at the workplace, NHG College believes in adopting 70:20:10 approaches
in the design and implementation of our programmes, incorporating elements of
experiential, work-based practice, social learning, and formal training.
Teach Well -Test Well - Treat Well
encapsulates the aspirations and approaches that our faculty had adopted in
developing the Professionals of Tomorrow’s Healthcare. In order to develop our
learners to their potential, the work of our faculty will involve facilitating
the learning process, assessment that learning has taken place, and creating a
psychologically safe learning environment.
