  About Academia

Address: 20 College Road, Singapore 169856

Academia's proximity to Singapore General Hospital (SGH), national speciality centres and the Duke-NUS Medical School makes it an ideal environment for the convergence of medical minds and an excellent venue for medical conferences​, seminars and a variety of ​events. 

More than the provision of physical space, Academia has been desig​ned to facilitate interconnectivity among clinical scientists, researchers, pathologists, educators and medical students. Fully equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, Academia is able to host a range of medical conferences and workshops.

The collaboration of e​​xpertise across different healthcare professions is accentuated with Academia being home to several Education Centres of Excellence. The consolidation of these centres under one roof allows for collaborative learning, where different teams can draw on the strengths and best practices of others. The synergy created catalyses new discoveries in medicine and advances patient care, which is at the heart of Academic Medicine.
