Testimonial From our Orthopaedic Surgery Resident

Dr Tan Jun Hao

Dr Tan Jun Hao, NUHS Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Programme, 2016 Cohort

"The NUHS Orthopaedic Surgery Residency is a very strong and established residency programme. I chose this programme not only for its excellent teaching, but more importantly for its close-knit community amongst the residents and faculty. 

Clinical training here is second to none, with a solid curriculum that fosters learning and growth in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere. The programme is structured such that residents at all levels have great hands-on experience, with wonderful exposure to a variety of surgical cases with differing complexities. Strong emphasis is also placed on the TRICEP values (Teamwork, Respect, Integrity, Compassion, Excellence, Patient-Centredness), to ensure that each resident has a holistic and comprehensive training.
 
Here at NUHS, there are plenty of research opportunities and eager mentors to provide personalised guidance. There is a strong emphasis and support to guide residents through their individual research journeys, with various research grants and mentorship available to all.
 
Overall, I feel that the NUHS Orthopaedic Surgery Residency programme is a well-curated, nurturing and comprehensive programme that aims to endow each resident with the necessary skills to become the best Orthopaedic Surgeon he or she can become."
