About the Programme
Rheumatology is the specialty for you if you enjoy the challenges of clinical medicine and its diversity, as well as sharing long-term relationships with your patients.
At Singapore General Hospital (SGH) Department of Rheumatology and Immunology, we are committed to training the next generation of doctors to be patient-centric and academically-inclined Rheumatologists.
With our dedicated Faculty members, one-stop Autoimmunity and Rheumatology Centre and vast clinical and research resources, we are focused on providing you with the best learning experience needed to fully realise your potential to be a skilled practitioner and consultant in rheumatic diseases.
As a Rheumatology Senior Resident, you will be working in the Rheumatology department of Singapore’s largest tertiary teaching hospital. Our mission is to deliver state-of-the-art, cost-effective, holistic care for patients and to foster a collegial environment for learning, teaching and research. With over 20,000 ambulatory visits a year, our department has a large pool of patients with a wide spectrum of rheumatological and immunological conditions for you to participate in the management of these patients, and develop your clinical acumen in both medicine and autoimmune diseases.
Message from the Programme Director
This is an exciting time to be a Senior Resident in Rheumatology. Previously in the 1980s, getting a traineeship only guaranteed a posting in that specialty. Without a structured teaching programme, trainees often learnt on the job. Later in 2014, with the start of ACGME accreditation in Singapore for Rheumatology, we were exposed to how a structured specialist training programme was like and looked forward to a time when all trainees could have proper training here in Singapore.
