The NUHS Obstetrics & Gynaecology (O&G) Residency Training is a seamless training programme, equipping residents with specialist knowledge and skills for an evidence-based O&G practice.
The NUHS O&G Department comprises the following divisions: Maternal-Foetal Medicine, Gynaecology Oncology, Benign Gynaecology / Urogynaecology and Reproductive Endocrinology / Infertility.
Residents would therefore be exposed to a wide range of clinical scenarios in their daily practice, equipping them with the necessary competencies for independent practice and the benefit of our women's health. To facilitate clinical training and competencies in a safe environment, numerous in house hands-on training sessions (including obstetric emergencies and gynaecological minimal access surgery, anatomy of surgical complications) are regularly organised to provide residents with the necessary confidence and skills.
In addition, the NUHS O&G Department is at the forefront of obstetrics and gynaecology clinical and basic sciences research. Residents are expected to participate in medical research during their training. They would therefore be equipped with the necessary critical analytical skills required for evidence-based clinical practice in women's health.
Our residency programme is expected to produce confident O&G specialists who are well rounded in clinical practice and research in the exciting field of obstetrics and gynaecology.
- Well-funded programme with e-learning, medical simulation and animal laboratory workshops.
- Being an university department, we have an extensive research curriculum to train our residents in both basic science and clinical research.
- We have also a high faculty to resident ratio (2:1 for faculty). This ratio ensures that our residents are provided with the best learning environment and adequate educational supervision.
- All morning teaching didactics are protected from service commitments.
- Residents get well-rounded outpatient experiences of OBGYN through general clinics and specialty clinics. Continuity clinics ensure involvement throughout the patient journey.
- With over 5000 deliveries, 6,200 operations, 7,600 in patient volume and 110,000 outpatient volume annually, we have ample clinical resources to provide residents exposure to a broad range of OBGYN conditions, and cutting edge treatment.
- Residents have an elective month in Residency Year 3/4 to develop an area of personal interest. They may spend this time within NUHS, a research facility or another hospital, subject to approval by the core faculty and relevant Specialist Training Committees.
