Imperial and NTU's new medical school aspires to be global health care role model
Date:10/29/2010

orld-class medical curriculum

The curriculum for the new 5-year undergraduate medical degree programme will be adapted from Imperial College's world-renowned undergraduate medical curriculum. Jointly developed by both institutions, and with inputs from key stakeholders from the Singapore healthcare sector, the curriculum is designed to suit the Singapore healthcare system while taking advantage of NTU's key strengths in engineering and business. Aimed at producing highly-rated clinicians and creating an impact in healthcare innovation and system as a whole, ICNMS will make use of the latest teaching models and best practices in medical education, while capitalising on research capabilities that interface across medicine, science and technology in bringing advancements to healthcare delivery and practice.

Professor Stephen Smith, Founding Dean of the new medical school said, "Imperial's partnership with NTU, and with hospitals and other healthcare providers across Singapore, represents an exciting opportunity to innovate in the training of doctors. We aim to use modern methods, such as e-learning approaches, to ensure our students receive the highest quality of medical education with a scientific basis, and an appreciation of the value that new technology can add in supporting healthcare practice."

In addition to developing students' medical knowledge, clinical skills and professionalism, the programme will also emphasise key general skills such as interpersonal and communications skills, and lifelong learning capabilities. To help students develop teamwork and leadership skills, there will be training involving multi-disciplinary teams allowing students to work alongside other colleagues from nursing, allied healthcare professions and hospital administration.
