The SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre (AMC) draws on the collective strengths of SingHealth and Duke-NUS Medical School to drive the transformation of healthcare and provide affordable, accessible and quality care to patients. It boasts of a network of acute hospitals, national specialty centres, community hospitals and polyclinics offering over 40 clinical specialties, as well as a talent pool of doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, researchers, educators, faculty members and administrators.

Academic Clinical Programmes

Academic Clinical Programmes (ACPs) are part of an AMC-wide framework for our clinical specialties to advance in Academic Medicine with resources and funding support from SingHealth and Duke-NUS. Each ACP brings together specialists in a particular discipline from different institutions to maximise the power of shared knowledge and resources.
