Urology Residency Programme


About the Programme

The SingHealth Urology Residency Programme is a six-year robust training programme including two years of Surgery-In-General to prepare you to be a competent General Urologist. 

Our Residency Programme offers a diverse training experience encompassing many aspects of Urology. Many of the urologic subspecialties – General Urology, Female Urology/Urodynamics, Urologic Oncology, Infertility/Andrology, Endourologic/Laparoscopic/Robotic Surgery, Reconstructive Urology and Renal Transplant are taught by a dedicated team of Faculty, who emphasises both holistic patient care and Resident education.

Most of our Faculty members hold teaching positions with the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and Duke-NUS Medical School. Our Faculty members are also actively involved at the highest level of training and training administration, both locally and at an international level. 

If you value teamwork, have an inquisitive nature and ability to think and ‘see’ beyond the obvious, and enjoy lifelong learning, you will fit right in at Urology.
