SUTD-Duke-NUS Special Track

Harnessing the Confluence of Design Innovations and Technology to Medicine


In today’s world, the use of technology and the design of the built environment play an increasingly significant role in improving the way we live and our quality of life. One area where this convergence of technology and design is making a huge impact is the practice of medicine.

The SUTD-Duke-NUS Special Track aims to nurture future clinicians who are adept at both practising medicine and harnessing technological advancements across disciplines to impact healthcare. With the ability to treat patients and design medical innovations, these future clinicians will have an edge in the industry, quickly becoming the new benchmark. Our partnership with Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) will help deliver this unique programme which aims to nurture future leaders in healthcare. Successful students will be equipped with a background in engineering or architecture, and can look forward to a technology and design focused curriculum which pushes them to think creatively and to work across disciplines.

Learning will take place at three campuses – SUTD, Duke-NUS Medical School and Singapore General Hospital’s Outram Campus. Successful students will graduate with a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree at SUTD, followed by a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree at Duke-NUS Medical School.
