Your Learning Experience

Your Medical Oncology training will take place at SingHealth’s hospitals, namely the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS), KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH), Changi General Hospital (CGH) as well as Sengkang General Hospital (SKH). At the Senior Residency level, you would work closely with our Faculty members and be given the opportunity to participate in the care of our cancer patients. 

Our programme consists of comprehensive and in-depth subspecialised oncology training. Senior Residents will rotate through four subspecialised oncology teams that cover the breath of Oncology to allow maximal exposure to common as well as rare cancers. The four teams include: 

  1. Gastrointestinal Cancers and Neuro-oncology
  2. Women’s Cancers (including Breast and Gynaecological cancers)
  3. Thoracic (Lung), Head & Neck cancers and Genitourinary Cancers
  4. Lymphoma and Sarcomas

You will be assigned to both inpatient and outpatient clinics where you would be closely supervised by the Programme Director and Faculty members. Towards the end of the Residency, you will be given the opportunity to spend three months in an elective research posting to develop your own area of interest in research.

You can also choose to embark on the Clinician-Scientist pathway. In fact, several of our registrars in-training have simultaneously pursued their PhDs under the full support of our department.
