Your Learning Experience

Orthopaedic rotations will take place at Singapore General Hospital (SGH),  Changi General Hospital (CGH), Sengkang General Hospital (SKH) and KK Women's and Children's Hospital (KKH), so you can be exposed to various orthopaedic procedures including joints, spinal, athroscopic surgeries and hip and knee replacements. 

As a Resident, you will participate in ward rounds, outpatient specialist clinics and surgeries, and you can expect to progress from one postgraduate year to the next with greater empowerment to practice as an orthopaedic surgeon. 

You will attend various courses to achieve four of the six competencies required of this competency-based Orthopaedic Surgery programme. You will also attend various cadaveric courses to learn and to enhance your surgical skills by using simulation models such as the arthroscopic simulator etc.
