The subspecialty of rheumatology includes the evaluation and treatment of a wide array of inflammatory, non- inflammatory, and degenerative diseases that affect the musculoskeletal and other organ systems.
The NUHS Rheumatology Senior Residency Programme strives for excellence in all aspects of residency education and training. The purpose of our rheumatology programme is to train residents to be accomplished practitioners and consultants in the rheumatic diseases; to encourage their professional development and scholarly pursuits that ensure they remain current in the field of rheumatology and immunology throughout their careers, and to foster their interest in contributing to future advancement of the field.
Graduate rheumatologists will meet the requirements to be eligible for the local advanced trainee exit exam and be certified as proficient to practise independently in either an academic institution or in private clinical practice.
Our senior residency programme consists of multiple areas of exposure over a period of three years, of which two years will fulfill the ACGME-I requirements. The programme will navigate the residents through a range of ward and outpatient-based clinical proficiencies in the field of rheumatology, with emphasis on building competencies in clinical patient management, bedside rheumatological procedures including musculoskeletal ultrasonography, interprofessional interactions and research.
