Geriatric Medicine

The NUHS Geriatric Medicine Senior Residency Programme is a three-year training programme (two years ACGME-I accredited and one year JCST accredited) for highly motivated and driven internal medicine and family medicine residents.

We offer diverse clinical experiences both in the acute and community care settings, a comprehensive didactic curriculum and career development programmes in medical education, research and / or hospital administration provided by committed faculty.

The programme is an integrated experience providing both rotational clinical blocks and longitudinal clinical care based at several sites:

  1. National University Hospital
  2. Ng Teng Fong General Hospital
  3. Tan Tock Seng Hospital
  4. Institute of Mental Health
  5. St. Luke's Hospital
  6. Ang Mo Kio Thye Hua Kwan Hospital
  7. Dover Park Hospice
  8. Hospice Care Association
  9. Ren Ci Nursing Home
  10. Tsao Foundation's Hua Mei Mobile Clinic Home Care Service

Senior residents will gain skills through a combination of supervised clinical experiences and formal national didactic teaching. In addition to the essential medical knowledge, each will develop leadership and teaching skills, professional attitudes, and practical experiences to enable the senior residents to be fully prepared to provide evidence-based patient-centred care to older patients in acute hospital, clinic and intermediate and long term care settings.
