Defining Tomorrow's Medicine

The SingHealth Duke-NUS Scientific Congress 2012 is a highly anticipated event that brings together the various institutions across SingHealth and around the region, sharing the latest medical developments and scientific advances across the various disciplines. Pushing the frontiers of healthcare and biomedical sciences, the collaboration between SingHealth and Duke-NUS Medical School Singapore aims to boost the exchange of ideas and research findings among healthcare professionals in our pursuit of defining tomorrow's medicine.

The inaugural Congress in 2010 attracted a turnout of more than 3,000 participants. For the Congress in 2012, we believe it will attract a greater participation of medical specialists, nursing and allied health professionals, general practitioners, academics, researchers and overseas healthcare leaders. Apart from the participation of the various institutions across the SingHealth group and Duke-NUS, invitations will be extended to all the hospitals, medical centres and institutions in Singapore and around the region.
