Education doesn’t come to an end at any point. Physicians who have entered clinical practice will need to continually maintain, develop and acquire new knowledge and skills in today’s increasingly complex medical scene.
At CGH, continuing medical education is essential for medical professionals to keep abreast of the latest advancements in medicine and clinical practices which are aimed at providing enhanced patient care.
The Office of MPG Education organises continuing medical education activities and accredited programmes, both online and offline, to constantly meet and develop the on-going training needs of clinicians.
Some of the programmes include, but are not limited to:
"Comprehensive faculty development...empowers faculty members to excel...and to create vibrant academic communities..." - Wilkerson and Irby 19982
Faculty development is a continuous process of learning and teaching to improve and impart knowledge and skills to physicians who dedicate precious time to educate and nurture future generations of medical practitioners.
The Office of MPG Education is committed to growing a culture of learning and building the capacity of our educators. The office engages faculty members in professional development as educational leaders with funding, sponsorships, and administrative support for various education & research programmes and activities, including inter-professional education and formal education postgraduate certificated programmes.
The Office of MPG Education actively partners clinical departments and faculty members to work with accredited academic and healthcare institutions on programmes, courses and conferences that are key to the development of medical educators in an inter-professional environment.
The programmes and activities are initiated and organised to further develop the clinical and professional knowledge and skills of the inter-professionals to meet the educational needs that lead to enhanced and quality patient care.

Healthcare demands are expected to increase with the rapid ageing population and increasing prevalence of chronic diseases in Singapore. Dovetailing with the Ministry of Health’s ‘3 Beyonds’ strategy to transform care, the Hospital Clinician (HC) scheme aims to support more sustainable medical manpower growth for an efficient care delivery system.
The programme is designed for non-specialist Hospital Clinicians to anchor inpatient care services in acute and subacute settings, a role complementary to specialists. The Hospital Clinician scheme is an important element in the overall plan of care transformation to ensure that Singapore’s healthcare system remains sustainable, and maintains a consistently high standard of care to address the healthcare needs of the Singapore population.
