Eligibility Criteria

To participate in the Residency Application Exercise, you will first need to be offered employment by MOH Holdings. 

Submission of Portfolio to MOHH

To aid the residency selection, please furnish contact details for up to 4 referees. Referees must have either supervised, worked with you or have been your personal tutor for a minimum of 3 weeks. They would also need to fulfill at least one of the following requirements:
  • A faculty member of your medical school, or
  • A Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine or Duke-NUS GMS appointed clinical tutor; or
  • At least hospital registrar or equivalent, or lecturer or higher.
Referees will be asked to assess various competencies and work attributes deemed important for a Resident that include but not limited to clinical skills.

Note for Local Graduates:
For graduating seniors from YLL-SOM and Duke-NUS GMS, one of the up to 4 referees will be the Dean of the respective medical schools who will submit their letters of reference directly to MOH/MOHH. Such applicants will only need to identify 3 referees. 

Multiple Mini Interviews

After successful submission of your Residency portfolio, you will be invited to select your interview dates and time in a separate online exercise. During the day of the interview, you will be required to complete a circuit of 4 interview stations, each lasting approximately 10 minutes. Candidates will be presented with a short case scenario for each station and allowed 2 minutes of reading time. The actual interview will last for about 8 minutes and the responses assessed on pre-determined domains that include but not limited to:
  • Teamwork and Collegiality
  • Communication skills
  • Compassion
  • Professional and ethical conduct
  • Personal Attributes

Matching Exercise

After completion of the interviews, MOHH will send you an email to invite you to rank your preferences for the programme(s) you interviewed for. Please note that candidate ranking is confidential and will not be made known to the Programme Directors. Any withdrawals from the Residency exercise from this point on will result in a candidate forfeiting his/her chance to participate in the next residency exercise.
