Our MD/PhD Programme has a vibrant and diverse event schedule. Some of the regular events include:
Monthly MD-PhD Dinner
These dinner meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month, and are an opportunity for students to meet speakers from both clinical and research departments.
Monthly Journal Club & Research-in-Progress Seminars
This venue allows students to present their ongoing thesis work or an interesting scientific article, and is held under the auspices of the Duke-NUS IBM Programme.
Distinguished Clinician-Scientist Series
This is a venue for our students to meet and interact with successful clinician-scientists from diverse backgrounds.
The Annual Duke-NUS IBM Student Research Symposium
This Annual Symposium features Keynote Speakers and showcases students’ research through poster presentations.
The Annual American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI) Meeting
Our students are encouraged to attend this overseas meeting at least once during their training. The meeting features high-impact discoveries made by distinguished clinician-scientists, and serves to provide ideas, inspiration, and net-working opportunities for our students.
Team Building Activities
The team building event takes our students out of their comfort zone to bond over fun and meaningful activities. Students learn and affirm the value of teamwork first-hand.
Annual MD-PhD Students Retreat
The annual retreat provides an extended platform for students and faculty to become acquainted in an informal setting.
