SingHealth Academy has been laying the ground work over the last decade to train and nurture healthcare professionals. As we prepare ourselves to further advance excellence in clinical education, SingHealth Academy will now focus on building a future-ready healthcare force.
Our healthcare landscape is evolving all the time. While the types of training that we received have served us well for the last few decades, we need to relook into the delivery of clinical education and training in a transformative manner to prepare for the changing models of care.
The formation of the five Colleges, along with the SingHealth Duke-NUS Institute of Medical Simulation (SIMS) will provide a more coordinated education pathway from undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate and continuing professional education to faculty development. This vertical integration will create synergy within each profession, and increase opportunities to foster closer collaboration across the various institutions.
Both clinical training and education are cornerstones to the practice of medicine. SingHealth Academy’s colleges and institute will leverage on inter-professional learning and multi-disciplinary collaboration among healthcare professionals to bring about a more integrative approach to the delivery of care in Singapore.
The future generation we educate and train must be better than our current generation. SingHealth Academy is committed to advancing clinical education and to nurture a multi-disciplinary team ready to define tomorrow’s medicine.
