From 2006 to 2016, he served as the Vice Dean of Education at Duke-NUS Medical School, in charge of starting up the School’s new education programs. Under his leadership, Duke-NUS education team successfully imported the curriculum from Duke University School of Medicine, and transformed it through a new pedagogical approach called TeamLEAD. This instructional strategy is now more commonly known as the “flipped classroom” (where students are required to come into the classroom already prepared), pairing it with in-class problem sets that the students solved in teams. This approach was one of the first of its kind in medical education and subsequently influenced curriculum development at Duke University School of Medicine and educational institutions across Singapore. In all, over 200 international delegations have made visits to Duke-NUS to learn more about TeamLEAD. Professor Kamei lectures frequently throughout the world on innovative approaches to education. In 2014, he was a recipient of the Outstanding Educator in Residence Award given by the Singapore Ministry of Education.

He subsequently pursued internship and residency training in Paediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. After a brief time as paediatric faculty member at Stanford University, he returned to UCSF where he served on the faculty for 18 years.

Prior to his position in Singapore, he served as the Director of Paediatric Residency Training at UCSF, between 1990 and 2006. Under Professor Kamei’s leadership, the UCSF programme grew to become one of the largest and most innovative paediatric residencies in the country.

Professor Kamei co-edited the textbook, “Fundamentals of Pediatrics”, with Dr Abraham Rudolph for over a decade, which became one of the most popular references on Paediatrics for medical students and residents. The book has since been translated into several languages.

In 2000, Professor Kamei was the recipient of a Fulbright Senior Scholar Award to provide faculty development for academician physicians in Indonesia. He also holds membership in the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
