Clinicians in Training
"Duke-NUS may be a young medical school in Singapore, but with its extraordinary faculty, we are confident we can be competent physicians too. This photo was taken after our team won the first ever Minnie Pang Pathology Challenge Shield!”
-Clement Sim, MD candidate, Class of 2020
The Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre is one of Singapore's best known hawker centres, or open-air food courts. This market is located a stone's throw away from Duke-NUS, and students and other customers can choose from a wide range of local food from more than 80 stalls.
Two popular meals are Singapore's national dish, chicken rice and Singapore-style carrot cake. (Instead of carrots, this cake contains radish, garlic, eggs and a thick, sweet sauce.)
Many Duke-NUS students contribute time and effort to community service projects, both locally and regionally.
One of these student-led initiatives is Camp Simba, which addresses the emotional needs of children whose family members are afflicted with cancer. Duke-NUS students also volunteer at Project DOVE, which provides free health screening and medical education to the underprivileged in the region, as well as I'm STEADY lah! which tackles social stigma of mental health issues among young adults in Singapore.
The SingHealth and Duke-NUS Academic Medicine partnership builds on the collective clinical strengths of the SingHealth Group (Singapore's largest healthcare group) with research and medical education capabilities of Duke-NUS.
Graduation at Duke-NUS
