Academic Medicine


The mission of an Academic Medical Centre (AMC) is to provide excellent patient care with a three-fold thrust: (1) deliver high quality affordable & compassionate patient care; (2) train practicing and aspiring healthcare professionals; and (3) advance health and healthcare innovations and research. The practice of Academic Medicine (AM) integrates the three pillars of medicine – clinical care, education and research. Through our SingHealth and Duke-NUS Academic Medicine partnership, we strive to be one of the best teaching hospitals, recognized for excellence in research, teaching, and quality of patient care.
