Allied Health Residency  

Allied health residency programmes incorporate both direct patient care and practice leadership.

The residency programmes provide allied health professionals with advanced clinical and skills training. Through a structured competency-based training framework and curriculum that incorporates opportunities to work with a wide range of patients under the guidance of experienced mentor(s), trainees can achieve professional and clinical competence in their respective advanced areas of practice.  

In June 2017, a steering committee was set up to look into the development of an Allied Health residency framework. The steering committee aims to:
  • Develop a residency framework relevant to SingHealth allied health professionals
  • Establish guidelines on residency curriculum development
  • Formulate training on development of residency programme
  • Develop strategies to raise awareness of residency among SingHealth allied health professionals
  • Promote interprofessional collaboration within residency programmes

There are currently 7 allied health residency programmes within SingHealth:

  • CGH Cardiac Device Residency 
  • SGH Pharmacy Residency in Critical Care (PGY2)
  • SGH Core Residency in Cardiopulmonary Physiotherapy
  • SGH Core Residency in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy
  • SGH Core Residency in Neurological Physiotherapy
  • NCCS Radiation Oncology Medical Dosimetry Residency
  • NCCS Radiation Oncology Medical Physics Residency
