Welcome to Division of Graduate Medical Studies

The healthcare challenges that we face as a global society today are complex, but our understanding of its intricacies has grown and continues to grow considerably. We now know more about the ways that education, politics, management, economics, and science are interrelated and together comprise the ecological system in which we live.

The health of our society going forward depends upon our ability to care for the environment and all that live in it, to provide resources and opportunities for all members to work and make meaningful contributions, to resolve domestic and international conflicts, and to cultivate tolerance and respect for differences.

We look forward to working with you, whether trainee, alumni, or prospective employer. Please make use of the many resources and features of this website, and return frequently to see the new program offerings, capabilities, and updates that we promise to make on an on-going basis.

About Our Department

The main aims of the Division are to promote postgraduate training and education in Singapore; to accredit training programmes; and to offer examinations leading to specialist qualifications. Since the inception of our postgraduate programmes, several thousands of doctors and other professionals have obtained the Master of Medicine (MMed degree) and Graduate Diplomas in the various specialties and clinical skills. The first examinations for the MMed degree held in 1970 were in Internal Medicine, Surgery and Paediatrics.

Subsequently, DGMS expanded to include more medical specialties. In recent years, allied health programmes such as Master of Science (Speech & Language Pathology) and Master of Science (Audiology) have also been introduced by the Division to serve the needs of Singapore.
