Singapore Chief Resident Programme (SCRP)
The one-year Singapore Chief Residency Programme (SCRP) was designed to develop the nation’s future generation of medical leaders who will inspire and espouse a sense of public service ethos and professionalism within their organisations and across Singapore.
The SCRP aims to nurture the public service ethos of selected doctors in training, equip them with new leadership competencies, and to forge a strong sense of camaraderie within the cohort that transcends the healthcare clusters.
