The first batch of doctors from the Nanyang Technological University’s medicine programme have just graduated.
Nanyang Technological University houses Singapore’s newest medical school, the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine. The school was set up in 2010 by NTU and Imperial College London.
Its pioneer cohort in 2013 consists of just over 50 students selected from more than 800 applicants.
The school replaces traditional lectures with a “flipped classroom” model that sees students watch recorded video clips and go through materials ahead of class.
Students then attend seminar-style classes and spend more time discussing and solving problems in groups.
