Urology

The NUHS Urology Residency Programme is committed to the objective of training well-rounded and thinking surgeons equipped with the ability to lead in the field of urology in research and education both nationally and internationally.

Under the guidance of committed faculty members, training is provided in both general urology and subspecialty care. Residents participate in all aspects of patient  care  from  outpatient  clinical  evaluation,  major  and  minor  ambulatory surgical operations to ward-based post-operative care.

Outstanding Features

Our programme aims to achieve excellence in clinical care, translational research and education – the tripartite mission of NUHS – through the following distinctive features of our programme

1.
Subspecialisation – Residents are trained by faculty staff dedicated to the most advanced and innovative clinical and operative urology in the respective subspecialties   of   kidney   surgery   and   transplantation,   uro-oncology, endourology, neurourology, female urology and andrology / infertility.  We have the privilege of providing exposure to the entire spectrum of specialty care at a single tertiary unit, including minimally invasive robotic surgery.

2.
Research  excellence  is  a  requirement  of  all  future  urologists  to  ensure competitiveness in both institutional and private settings.  Our proximal and established links with NUS, A Star, Biopolis and previous academic record ensure our residents have all the resources and mentor guidance to pursue further education, ranging from a Masters in Clinical Investigation (MCI), in Public Health (MPH) to a PhD.

3.
Our  Core  Faculty  staff  have  a  wide-ranging  fellowship  experience  in  US, UK  and  Australia,  supported  by  world-renowned  Yeoh  Ghim  Seng, Visiting Professor  Urs  E.  Studer and Professor Santosh from Christian Medical College, India,  that  will  provide  a  comprehensive  educational experience for our residents. This also means there are multiple choices for fellowship training for our residents.
