A career in medicine may continue for as long as one remains committed to it. There are many different paths that a medical career may take, apart from the typical clinical route. Many doctors have expanded their horizons into medical education, research, healthcare management and leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, public and global health, and even healthcare advocacy.
What is needed is a passion for improving the health and wellbeing of people, a willingness to explore new and different frontiers, and a commitment to pursuing excellence in how we care for and help our patients. Limitations exist only when we cease to dare to dream, learn and try.
Our cosmopolitan city embraces diversity—which is vital for our ongoing growth and development, advancement and ability to provide the highest standards of healthcare regionally.
To that end, we warmly welcome students from all over the world to join us and be a part of our vibrant healthcare community. To find out more about the various financial aid schemes that are available at Duke-NUS, please visit our page here or get in touch.
