Programme Outline​


The 1-month orientation is designed to expose our MAs to Singapore’s public healthcare landscape and prepare our MAs to take on various functions and leadership roles within NHG. MAs will take part in an array of exclusive activities, including cross-institutional sharing sessions, learning and networking opportunities with NHG leaders and senior MAs.

Cross-functional Rotations

Our MAs will be exposed to a wide spectrum of healthcare operations through three different rotations, each spanning a period of 7 to 8 months. This gives them a holistic understanding of the various functions within this industry and the opportunities to hone transferable skill sets, enabling them to build a meaningful career in healthcare. The functional groups include but are not limited to the following:

Patient Operations

MAs can expect themselves to be involved in projects directly impacting our patients’ experiences. These include departments such as Clinic Operations, Allied Health Services and Pharmacy.

Support Operations & Services

MAs will have the opportunity to support the complex backend operations of the healthcare systems. These include departments like Emergency Planning, Resource Management and Facilities Development Office.

Corporate and Strategic Planning

MAs will be exposed to healthcare administration and planning from a macro perspective, driving change at the system level. These include departments like Population Health, Organisational Development, Planning and Development

Graduation from Programme

After 2 years, MAs will graduate from the programme and take on full-time positions in the respective institutions to further specialise their skill sets and build their healthcare careers. In addition, MAs will have the opportunity to continue their leadership development journey through the various opportunities across NHG institutions.
