Duke-NUS Clinical and Translational Sciences Medical PhD application

Overview and Aims

The aim of the PhD Programme in Clinical and Translational Sciences (PhD CTS) is to educate and train medical doctors and other health science professionals to perform clinical and translational research. The proposed programme will focus on the interface between clinical, biological and social research methods by bringing together experts in quantitative sciences (biostatistics, epidemiology, and bioinformatics), biological basic sciences (genomics, immunomics, metabolomics), ethics, clinical therapeutics, health services and systems research.

The goal is that clinician scientists trained in this PhD programme will lead research efforts in Singapore in the future and will enhance Singapore’s international reputation in medical research.

Candidates may be admitted on a full-time or part-time basis. The programme is self-supporting and the candidates are encouraged to apply for NMRC Research Training Fellowship in November the year before application.
