In this 4-week Clinical Skills Foundation
Programme (CSFP), students are placed in a clinical setting where they can practise
history taking and physical examination techniques under the supervision of
their assigned core tutors. During this posting, the students will be rotated
to Surgery (2 weeks) and Medicine (another 2 weeks).
Year 3 Surgery Posting is a 10-week clinical posting where surgical conditions
and their approaches are introduced to medical students. Students are being
embedded in their surgical teams in a rotation basis whilst having tutorials
and centralized teachings so as to build on their clinical skills, exposure and
2-weeks rotation for ENT posting aims to expose students to Otolaryngology.
Other than tutorials, students will be assigned to clinics where they can learn
through seeing and examining patients in an actual clinical setting.

first go through a series of workshops in preparation of the subsequent 4-weeks
SIP posting where they function as a junior House Officer (HO) in their respective
surgical teams under the supervision of a consultant. They will then be
attending revision tutorials and lectures in the remaining 3 weeks.
