Quality & Innovation Distinction Programme


IQuonIC is a distinction programme in Quality and Innovation in Healthcare for NUHS residents. It is a 3-year certificate programme to allow individual NUHS residents the opportunity to develop skills in quality improvement and empower them as agents of change. The programme runs in parallel with the various junior and senior residency programmes.

About the logo

The logo is derived from a photograph taken of a hand placed beneath illuminated light bulbs. The light bulbs symbolize new and bright ideas. The hand has five fingers, symbolising the 5 tenets of the programme–namely Quality, Innovation, Collaboration, Empowerment (of patients and residents) and Value.

All resident projects will focus on one or more of these tenets. The fingertips of the human hand form a circle – such that though the fingers are of differing lengths, they are all equal spokes of a circle. Ultimately, the power of change is in our hands.
