The Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, Singapore’s newest medical school which is housed under Nanyang Technological University, graduated its first batch of doctors this year.
One graduate is Dr Kiang Wen Wei, 24, who has started his postgraduate training in Tan Tock Seng Hospital’s orthopaedic surgery department. He feels that the course has provided him adequate training in terms of content and simulations.
Another graduate, Dr Ang Jia Wei, has started her stint at Tan Tock Seng Hospital’s general medicine department. She feels that NTU does things differently and has improved how medicine is taught.
The Ministry of Health said last year that its aim is to have an annual intake of 500 medical students.
