Vision & Mission

The Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at the National University of Singapore has a strong graduate program that will nurture and train leading medical researchers and will provide industry with highly competent biomedical scientists and clinician-scientists who will spearhead and drive Singapore's medical biotechnology efforts.

At the end of their period of graduate training, our PhD graduates would have acquired:

  • sufficient depth and understanding of their field of research
  • the ability to think independently and creatively
  • the ability to identify important questions and formulate testable hypotheses
  • after an appropriate period of further post-doctoral training, the ability to run an independent research program

Our MSc graduates would have acquired:

  • the technical competence to support a research project under minimal supervision
  • sufficient depth and understanding of their own field of research
