Our department has a structured teaching programme consisting of didactic and interactive sessions, including supervised clinic and endoscopic sessions. All senior residents get training in the areas of gastroenterology and hepatology. Endoscopic training includes simulator training followed by supervised hands-on training. In addition, our department organises regular workshops (Hepatitis B, hepatocellular carcinoma, nutrition, inflammatory bowel disease, etc.) for the education of registrars/senior residents. Importantly, senior residents get exposure to niche areas such as management of liver transplant patients.
There is also a strong research culture and senior residents get mentored research opportunities. We also provide support to registrars/senior residents presenting their research findings in international conferences. All senior residents receive good breadth of exposure in basic gastroenterology and hepatology and with subsequent subspecialisation, time and support, excellence can be achieved in the niche areas for individuals. Our training programme has been well received.
Given the strength of the division and its members, and our goal to fulfill our potential, we aspire to improve the future practice of gastroenterology and hepatology by translating research to practice. Our team aims to be known for our work regionally and even internationally.
Be part of an exciting and closely-knitted team which provides holistic care. We welcome senior residents who share our vision to join us in our journey to achieve excellence in clinical practice, education and research, not just in the local setting, but also beyond.
Exposure to broad range of patients
NUHS Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology manages a broad range of patients. It is one of the two Liver Transplant Centres in Singapore's restructured hospitals, allowing training of senior residents in the multidisciplinary management of Liver Transplant patients. In addition, it has a comprehensive gastromotility service. We also run subspeciality clinics such as inflammatory bowel disease clinic, functional GI clinic and Hepatitis B clinic. Our Division also provides TPN service and senior residents get rotated to do multidisciplinary nutrition rounds. We also work closely with surgeons, oncologists and radiologists in the management of patients with GI cancers, giving senior residents exposure to the care of these patients.
