Clinical Microbiology

Clinical Microbiology delivers a variety of both laboratory and clinical aspects of infection, including patient care, bench work, infection control and public health. Research is an integral part of normal routine hospital clinical microbiology as there are always new problems or difficult patients to investigate. My role at NUS is to teach students taking various courses but teaching medical students forms the core of my NUS activity. I implemented problem based learning and am part of a few teams experimenting with new approaches to teching; e.g. making intreactice videos with pharmacology and student led videos with other Microbiology colleagues.
