Associate Professor Andrew Tan
Co-Director, SingHealth Duke-NUS Institute of Medical Simulation (SIMS)

Director, SingHealth Duke-NUS Surgical Simulation Centre
Deputy Head (Education) and Senior Consultant, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Singapore General Hospital

Associate Professor Andrew Tan greatly values the importance of training the next generation of healthcare professionals, and believes simulation plays a pivotal role in high-quality training and patient safety.

He was appointed Director of SGH Surgical Skills and Simulation Centre in 2011, and helped transform the centre into a full-fledged, comprehensive surgical skills training centre with skills-specific platforms that cut across all surgical and procedural specialties. He subsequently oversaw the transformation of the SGH centre into a SingHealth Duke-NUS entity, moving the operations into the new facility at Academia to better serve the training needs of all staff and medical students.

A/Prof Tan also played an instrumental role in the crafting and ​setting up of SIMS. As Co-Director of the institute, he hopes that it will set a new milestone for simulation training and research in Singapore, helping us produce highly-skilled healthcare professionals, and putting us on the world map as a world-class simulation centre.

Dr Mok Yee Hui
Co-Director, SingHealth Duke-NUS Institute of Medical Simulation (SIMS)

Senior Consultant, Children’s Intensive Care Unit, Department of Paediatric Subspecialties, KK Women’s and Children Hospital
Director, KK​ Hospital Simulation Centre 
Adjunct Associate Professor, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, 
National University of Singapore
Adjunct Associate Professor, Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore
Core Faculty, Pediatric Residency Programme, SingHealth​

​Adjunct Associate Professor Mok Yee Hui strongly believes that the experiential process and mindful reflection-upon-action debriefs are fundamental to simulation-based learning, and is the key to transformational practices to improve patient care for healthcare professionals, teams and organisations.

Dr Mok took over as Director of the KK Women’s and Children Hospital Simulation Centre in 2016, and hopes to guide the Simulation Centre to greater prominence as a specialised centre for neonatal, pediatric and women’s simulation training and research. She is also a consultant pediatric intensivist with the children’s intensive care unit at KK Women’s and Children Hospital, with interests in pediatric resuscitation and crisis resource management. Recognising the significant role that simulation training plays in preparing individuals and teams for high-risk, low-frequency events, she has been pivotal in developing and maintaining a simulation-based pediatric acute care curriculum for clinicians and nurses at KK Women’s and Children Hospital since 2007. Some of Dr Mok's achievements in simulation include having successfully incorporated simulation-based learning into KKH’s Children’s Hospital Emergency Transport Service (CHETS) training, and using in-situ simulation as a tool to identify latent safety threats within the neonatal and pediatric extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) programme as well as pediatric resuscitation processes at KKH. 

In pursuit of her continued passion for cultivating future generations of healthcare professionals, she completed simulation instructor courses under the Center for Medical Simulation (Boston) and the Danish Institute for Medical Simulation (EuSim). She has also completed an educational fellowship with the Academic Medicine Education Institute (AM•EI) Singapore in 2014/2015, and is currently pursuing a Health Profession Educator’s program with the Harvard-Macy Institute. She has been awarded the Dean’s award for excellence in teaching at National University of Singapore and the Outstanding Faculty Award, Pediatric Residency SingHealth.​

​​Adjunct Associate Professor Yuen has been involved in teaching and education for the past 10 years and is the first Director for the Centre for Advanced Clinical and Surgical Skills (CACS) that collaborates closely with the Changi Simulation Institute (CSI) at Changi General Hospital (CGH).

Together, the two centres conduct medical simulation training, teaching and research on various advanced clinical skills and surgical techniques for local as well as international healthcare professionals. A/Prof Yuen strongly believes in training and education for patient safety, as well as for advancing the frontiers of various fields and specialties in clinical medicine. At the same time, he is a strong advocate for faculty development and collaborative synergy in medical education; the courses at CGH involve teaching faculty from different hospitals in Singapore.
