Outside the KKH Operating Theatres

The first year was definitely the toughest, but being part of the Seah Cheng Siang College helped make my medical education much more enjoyable and not having to walk the journey alone. College meetings happen once a week and we usually meet up over lunch with our 3 College masters, who take time off their busy schedules as physicians to become friendly mentors to us. They listen to our difficulties and concerns and also serve as a bridge to the school administrators. I have to admit that this is really a refreshing experience, as I have never had anything similar to this during my undergraduate days! It brings a sense of belonging and also a therapeutic relief just knowing that the school values your entire educational experience.
