The NUHS Ophthalmology Residency Programme is a five-year programme that provides residents with broad experience in Ophthalmology. The programme provides an excellent balance of clinical training, structured education, and research opportunities. We emphasise mentored management of the patient by the resident, including all aspects of pre-operative evaluation and preparation, operative procedures as well as post-operative and follow-up care.
Residents will gradually assume increasing responsibility for the patient’s care as they progress through the residency commensurate with their skills and abilities. The programme aims to achieve these goals though didactic lectures courses, conferences, tutorials and mentored operative and research experience.
Upon successful completion of the training, residents will become competent general Ophthalmologists after passing the qualifying examination. We ensure that training incorporates the six core competency areas as defined by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education International (ACGME-I) of patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism and systems-based practice.
