Welcome to Duke-NUS, Singapore’s flagship graduate-entry medical school.
Duke-NUS Medical School was established through a landmark collaboration between two world-class institutions: Duke University and the National University of Singapore (NUS), with the objective of providing innovative education and impactful research that enhance the practice of medicine in Singapore and beyond.
As a graduate-entry medical school, Duke-NUS attracts the brightest minds from a range of backgrounds, who bring with them significant academic and life experiences. Our MD curriculum is designed to provide an opportunity for our students to become outstanding clinicians and curious, critical thinkers who may also contribute to medicine as researchers, educators, leaders, entrepreneurs or policy makers. This is the basis of our “Clinician First, Clinician Plus” curriculum.
Along with our innovative educational programmes, we are a research powerhouse and our distinguished scientists are transforming the way we understand, diagnose and treat diseases. Our world-class signature research programmes are aligned to critical areas of public health needs in Singapore. These disease-focused, multi-disciplinary programmes have facilitated research discoveries that will improve the lives of patients in Singapore and around the world.
Our School benefits greatly from our strategic partnership with Singapore Health Services (SingHealth), which includes Singapore General Hospital, widely recognised as one of the top hospitals in the world. Through our SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre, we are able to leverage our joint capabilities and infrastructure to develop outstanding clinical education programmes and cutting-edge research collaborations that translate fundamental science into better health.
Whether you are considering studying, working or partnering Duke-NUS, I invite you to explore what we have to offer through our website and discover all of the great things that are happening here.
