The Duke-NUS Medical Student Fellowship (Duke-NUS MSF) is an AM-ETHOS initiative which provides funding support for Duke-NUS Medical Students who are undertaking their research/scholarly projects with a Mentor from the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Clinical Programme (ACP).
The Duke-NUS MSF hopes to spur the Duke-NUS Medical Students’ academic interest and experience, and at the same time, strengthen the Medical Student-ACP Mentor and ACP engagement. This is important for Duke-NUS as an academic medical school and for the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre to identify student talents early on for medical pipeline development.
