Medical Students

The Associate Dean’s Office collaborates with NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, Duke-NUS Medical School and NTU Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine to provide undergraduate clinical training programmes for these schools.

Together with our educators, we are committed to ensuring that students’ learning objectives are met and their learning experience is meaningful in Changi General Hospital (CGH). Medical students are often attached to a patient’s care team to maximise learning opportunities.

Student Learning Activities

  • Daily rounds
  • Departmental teaching activities
  • Observing clinic/operating theatre/endoscopy
  • Clerking patients and examining patients
  • As part of the patient care team, they are involved in diagnosis and co-management of patients
  • Job shadowing for final year students
  • Emphasis on patient safety

We oversee the overall medical undergraduate education programme in CGH and liaise with the three medical schools to ensure that programmes offered meet the rigorous demands of each school, and that trained medical students become competent and safe doctors.

Our services include:

  • Planning and delivering structured programmes for clinical clerkship.
  • Handling local and overseas elective postings.
  • Organising clinical exams and revision seminars for medical students.
  • Student welfare.
  • Liaising with faculty appointments and development.

The Associate Dean’s Office works closely with the three medical schools to identify appropriate courses for our faculty for their professional development.

Faculty development programmes are mainly provided by SingHealth’s Academic Medicine Education Institute, NUS’s Centre for Medical Education (CENMED) and LKC’s Faculty development arm.

We also work closely with our Education Office and the SingHealth Group Education Office to administer the PECT (Pre-employment Clinical Training) faculty development funding to ensure developmental opportunities for deserving educators and education programmes.
