class medical schools. All three will cooperate but also compete to gear up a new generation of doctors who will transform healthcare and help Singaporeans stay healthy."

Pro-Tem Governing Board Chair appointed

The new medical school will start out with a Pro-Tem Governing Board (PTGB) to guide the establishment of the school, prior to the appointment of the Governing Board. At the media conference held in advance of the signing ceremony, Mr Lim Chuan Poh, Chairman of The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and a member of the NTU Board of Trustees, was announced as the Chairman of the school's PTGB.

11. Mr Lim has been active in the Science and Technology as well as the Education sectors, having been a board member of A*STAR's Biomedical Research Council since January 2004 and the National Research Foundation since January 2006. He was also Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Education from July 2003 to March 2007. As the Chair of the Pro-Tem Governing Board, Mr Lim will provide strategic direction and oversight of the school's management, and play a pivotal role in driving the development of the new medical school.

Mr Lim said, "Starting a new medical school is an exciting and meaningful development for Singapore. It opens up another pathway for young Singaporeans to pursue a world class medical education. At the same time, it fulfils a need to produce enough of our own doctors to meet the increasing demands for affordable and quality healthcare of Singaporeans. Our aim is to see top quality doctors, medical leaders and researchers emerge from this school in the near future."

The membership of the PTGB will be announced at a later date. The PTGB will include representatives from the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, NTU, Imperial, National Healthcare Group and other industry leaders with expertise and experience to help the new medical school achieve its goals.
