The National Preventive Medicine Residency Programme at NUHS encompasses the previous national specialist training programmes in Public Health and Occupational Medicine. The programme equips residents with a sound and broad foundation in Public Health and/or Occupational Medicine and the knowledge, skills and experiences to become future leaders in health and healthcare systems.
Besides institutions within NUHS, residents are deployed to diverse participating sites which provide training and future employment opportunities, including government ministries and statutory agencies like the Health Promotion Board, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Manpower, the Singapore Armed Forces, National Healthcare Group and SingHealth. These sites offer a wide spectrum of training within nurturing environments under the close supervision and mentorship of experienced faculty.
Upon successful completion of the residency, residents will be ready for a fulfilling career in the public sector, private sector, academia, non-governmental organisations or international health organisations.
