NTU-Duke-NUS Medicine Pathway

Training Clinician Entrepreneurs and Psychologists

The NTU-Duke-NUS Medicine Pathway provides motivated individuals the opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial aspirations in the medical field through a myriad of engagement activities.

Through the stimulating and challenging curriculum devised by the School of Biological Sciences, graduates will be well-trained to meet the demands of the biomedical and healthcare industries, ensuring that they maintain relevance in the industry.

Successful students will graduate with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biological Sciences and Psychology / Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biomedical Sciences and BioBusiness at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), followed by a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree at Duke-NUS Medical School.

Programme Highlights

This pathway is open only to NTU School of Biological Sciences students admitted to the Double Major Programme in Biomedical Sciences and BioBusiness (BSB) or Double Major Programme in Biological Sciences and Psychology (BSPY)

As part of the core requirement, both double major programmes will be required to complete a Final Year Project related to their key discipline: Neuroscience & Psychology (for BSPY) and Business of Biomedical sector (for BSB). The former is often done in partnership with (but not limited to) the Institute of Mental Health and the latter with organisations in the Biomedical Sector.

Students can also expect to stay engaged with Duke-NUS through periodic meetings with Duke-NUS faculty on campus and invitations to activities designed to provide insights into the medical school experience and a career in medicine. A general overview of the coursework requirements and mentorship and enrichment activities is below.
