NUHS conducts an institution-wide orientation for all new residents. The transition into the Residency training may not be smooth sailing and the aim of the orientation is to prepare them for their role as residents.
Other than the orientation organizsed by the hospital, the incoming residents are required to attend the Outward Bound Singapore (OBS) programme. Through planned activities, residents would be able to embrace the NUHS core values - Teamwork, Respect, Integrity, Compassion, Excellence and Patient-Centredness. It is also an opportunity for the residents to develop strong rapport with their peers and get to know the senior management on a personal level.
