The NUHS Urology residency faculty is committed to the objective of training well-rounded, 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.
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 will train under 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.
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, Biopolis and academic record ensure our residents have all the resources and mentor guidance to pursue a 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, that will provide a comprehensive educational experience for our residents.
