The NUHS Anaesthesiology Residency Programme strives for excellence in residency training and aims to enable each resident to develop his or her to the highest capacity. The cornerstone of our academic mission is the training of high quality and well-rounded specialists in anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine.

The mission of our programme is the dedicated education of our residents in all areas of knowledge, clinical and technical skills, and professional attitudes related to anaesthesia. Graduate anaesthetists meet the requirements to become certified by the Master of Medicine (MMed), Anaesthesia Singapore as specialist anaesthetists who are proficient to practice anaesthesiology independently. In addition to clinical skills, our five-year programme emphasises interpersonal skills, effective communication, professionalism, leadership in health services delivery, prudent financial resource stewardship, and quality improvement programmes.
