NHG’s cutting-edge facilities, excellent clinician-educators and large patient volume, combined with our wide range of expertise in acute, step-down and primary care services, will enable undergraduate medical students to have a fulfilling and exciting learning journey.
As training institutions, our role includes building up our clinical academic staff, infrastructure and capacity, administering and ensuring quality clinical training for all undergraduate medical students from Duke-NUS Medical School, Nanyang Technological University Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine and National University of Singapore Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.
Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine
The Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine) is poised to open its doors – with NHG as its principal clinical training partner. Singapore’s newest medical school, a collaboration between Imperial College London and the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), will welcome its pioneer batch of 50 students in August 2013.
LKCMedicine strives to produce outstanding doctors of tomorrow who are able to integrate medicine and sciences with research and technology, enabling them to provide our patients with even higher standards of integrated care in the future.
In addition to teaching, 29 clinicians hand-picked from NHG institutions – including Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Institute of Mental Health, National Healthcare Group Polyclinics and National Skin Centre – will also hold key faculty positions at the new school and be actively involved in the design and planning of the curriculum.
Tan Tock Seng Hospital will be the main teaching hospital. But students will also be taught at Institute of Mental Health, selected NHG Polyclinics and at National Skin Centre. By tapping into NHG’s wide range of expertise in acute, step-down and primary care services, as well as its full range of clinical settings, LKCMedicine students will have a holistic learning experience that is linked to NHG’s integrated Regional Health System.
At LKCMedicine, the way ahead for medicine lies in the integration of ideas and the marrying of the minds of doctors, health professionals, researchers and engineers.
