Overall basic concept is a brief overview on philosophy, followed by a curriculum timetable.
We aim to provide comprehensive education to our medical students to equip them with the requisite knowledge, skill and attitudes to function as competent and compassionate doctors for Singapore and the world.
In order to achieve this aim, the department is invested at all stages of the undergraduate curriculum, in developing and delivering the curriculum, and in assessment.
As far as possible, evidence-based pedagogical approaches are adopted to nurture constructive, contextual, collaborative, and self-directed learning. The focus in ongoing curriculum discourse is on both vertical and horizontal integration, and reinforcement through the adoption of a spiral curriculum.
Interest in specific areas of specialty and research are nurtured and encouraged, with a range of facilitative arrangements, grants and programmes.
