Shaping Future Medical Leaders


The National University Health System (NUHS) has the unique advantage of being an Academic Health System by grouping the National University Hospital (NUH), Alexandra Hospital, JurongHealth,  National University Polyclinics, NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NUS Faculty of Dentistry and Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health under a common governance structure to create synergies to advance healthcare for all by integrating clinical care, research and education. 

NUHS is one of the three Sponsoring Institutions and its Residency programs are either internationally-accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education - International (ACGME-I) or locally-accredited by the Joint Committee on Specialist Training (JCST).  In addition, our strong partnerships with St Luke’s Hospital, Frontier Healthcare Group and Raffles Medical Group give our residents the depth and breadth to further develop their skills and specialties.

Our Residents are trained to be the best doctors they can be - one excelling in the science and art of Medicine built on our TRICE values of Teamwork, Respect, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence.

Our faculty at NUHS are passionate clinicians with a love for teaching and mentoring, who personify our NUHS values and who care for each and every resident as an unique individual. 

They have been entrusted with the mandate of training YOU, to be our next generation of medical leaders for Singapore. Besides our educators, our NUH CEO, Chairman Medical Board and many senior leaders take a personal interest in our residents and view them as a big part of the NUHS Family.

Our vision for the graduates of the NUHS Residency is to be all-rounded healthcare professionals with a strong desire to serve the community through empathetic patient care, break-through research and continuous education embodying the TRICE values. 

NUHS Residents who pass through the gates of NUHS will lead in shaping medicine of the future, fulfilling their mission to be top medical professionals, both locally and internationally.
