Allied Health Undergraduate Education
The CAH Undergraduate Education Unit was established to serve four functions:
- Build systems and processes that ensure the undergraduate clinical training programmes are of high quality.
- Promote faculty development and establish a support structure for clinical educators; establish a registry which tracks training outcomes to monitor quality and assist in continuous improvement.
- Increase the inter-professional and inter-institutional collaboration of undergraduate clinical educators, by providing a common platform for interaction and resource sharing.
- Serve as the primary contact for clinical attachment requests by international, non-PECT (Pre-employment Clinical Training) funded allied health students. The unit will provide administrative assistance in the application and enrolment process.
Each year, more than 1,200 allied health students from different academic institutions come to learn at our various SingHealth Institutions.
