A new Academic Medicine Education Institute will be launched next month for healthcare workers interested in teaching and educational administration.
The institute, a collaboration between SingHealth and Duke-NUS, will support innovation in teaching methods and promote research.
This was announced by Health Minister Gan Kim Yong at the second SingHealth Duke-NUS scientific congress attended by more than 2500 medical, nursing, allied health and research professionals.
According to SingHealth Group CEO, Professor Ivy Ng, the institute will have several training courses ranging from surgical skills development and simulation and training.
"A large number of our staff are really educating the next generation of healthcare workers in all domains - in medicine, nursing, allied health professionals even healthcare administrators and certainly we want to upscale them so that they can truly do this work of education better. The other aspect of having the education institute is to look into innovations in education and to do research in education as well."
