A Hotbed of Medical and Healthcare Expertise

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 events.

More than just providing physical space, Academia has been designed to facilitate interconnectivity among clinical scientists, researchers, pathologists, educators and medical students.

The collaboration of expertise 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.
