NUHS & Residency

Source: National University Hospital

The National University Health (NUHS) was established in January 2008 which comprises of the NUHS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, Faculty of Dentistry, the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, the National University Hospital, the National University Cancer Institute, Singapore and the National University Heart Centre, Singapore.

The mission of NUHS is a three-prongedSource: National University Hospital drive for excellence in Clinical Care, Translational Clinical Research, and Education.  The enhanced capabilities and capacity will enable NUHS to deliver better patient care, train future generations of doctors and healthcare providers more effectively and bring innovative treatments to patients through ground-breaking research, focus towards the major medical issues challenging Singapore's population.  By developing the campus at Kent Ridge, to include a wide range of laboratory and teaching facilities, NUHS is constantly striving to advance in medical care through world-class biomedical research and education.

Ambulatory teaching and learning had move on to a whole new dimension with the set-up of our NUH Medical Centre.

Recognising that ambulatory teaching is an important component of our residency training, our consultation rooms at the new NUH Medical Centre are all sized to accommodate both the faculty and the residents.

For the first time, dedicated 'teaching hubs" are sited beside consultation rooms, allowing the residents to have quick discussions with their faculty, in the absence of patients.  These "teaching hubs" are equipped to make both teaching and learning in the ambulatory setting an enriching experience for all.

In addition, the "teaching rooms" are available to accommodate big group teaching, where rooms are designed like a big consultation room in an ambulatory setting. Patients may be invited to be part of the teaching session if appropriate.
