Message from ADIO, Research
Welcome to SingHealth Clinician Scientist (CS) Residency!
The primary educational goal of the CS Residency is to provide opportunities for Residents passionate in clinical and academic research to embark on a career as a Clinician Scientist. The CS Residency aims to nurture its Residents interested in research through supporting them with protected time and research funding.
With the Academic Medicine partnership between SingHealth and Duke-NUS, CS Residency supports our Residents in developing critical clinical and research skills. With collective clinical and research training, Residents will be able to pursue their preferred specialty while shaping a career in Academic Medicine. SingHealth works closely together with Academic Medicine Research Institute (AMRI) to support the delivery of research training available at the respective Residency training programmes.
CS Residency is a nationwide programme and with state-of-the-art research labs at Academia, Residents can hone their research skills and acquired laboratory skills to embark on a career in research. Every CS Resident will be matched to a research mentor, who will support, guide and oversee their professional development.
Exposure to areas of scientific research is essential in nurturing the next generation of Clinician Scientists. While the ability to perform clinical procedures is crucial, the skills required to conduct clinical research is equally important. If you have the passionate interest in the science of medicine and wish to pursue a research career as a Clinician Scientist, we are excited to welcome you to CS Residency.
