I’m impressed with the quality of the regional and local speakers, particularly the young clinicians and scientist. As compared to when I first arrived in Singapore, this is light year ahead in terms of the general understanding of expertise in medicine, and in science and biomedicine. It’s really quite thrilling.

Date: 21 Sep 2018

Professionalism amongst the trainees has over the years become very important. The identification and assessment of professionalism has now formed part of the ACGMEI training requirements. Defining what constitutes professional behaviour in trainees is the first step in the process. However, due to a myriad of factors, there seems to be difficulty in identifying and evaluating professionalism. 

In this symposium, the speakers will discuss how the SingHealth Residency Programme is defining Professionalism in current medical practice amongst trainees, the evolution of the P-MEX in the current setting and the proposed interventions.
