Prof Chee Yam Cheng President, NHG College
Singapore’s healthcare landscape is changing. To meet
the needs of our Singapore population, one that is aging rapidly, our
healthcare delivery system needs to be transformed, to one which is
integrated, effective and sustainable. It is therefore critical to equip our
healthcare workforce with the capabilities and attributes to meet these
demands and challenges.
NHG College plays an important role by contributing to
the creation of a learning eco-system for leadership development, faculty
development for health professions education, and continuing professional
development. It integrates and brings together the key building blocks for
developing a world-class education and training system in NHG.
In addition to tapping on the expertise of our internal
faculty, NHG College also partners with globally-renowned institutions to
bring quality learning opportunities to our healthcare professionals. The
alumni of NHG College have continued to make a difference and impact
healthcare through the work they do in their respective institutions.
I wish you an enjoyable and fruitful learning journey

NHG College has come a long way in its journey in
becoming a vibrant center for learning excellence. Since our inception in
2002, NHG College has been evolving its role as a cluster-level training
institution to support NHG more effectively in its strategic goals for
organizational development and workforce development.
To achieve that, NHG College works closely with our
various stakeholders and communities to analyze and identify learning and
development needs of our workforce, design and develop learning interventions
and programmes, as well as establish the strategies for implementation and
