Our Mission

To support the educational activities in Duke-NUS and SingHealth:
  • Facilitate synergy and efficiency in the educational programmes
  • Develop, mentor and retain the best educators for our students, residents, other trainees and faculty
  • Stimulate and support the development of innovative educational programmes

The role of an educator is critical to healthcare. It is important that healthcare professionals pass on knowledge so that the next generation has the expertise to improve patient care. AMEI encourages the love of teaching and learning while raising healthcare education standards. This would not have been possible without the dedication of the educators from SingHealth and Duke-NUS. Let us continue to harness the collective capabilities of our dynamic community of educators to strengthen healthcare education and ensure that future generations of healthcare professionals are equipped with the right skills and competencies to define tomorrow’s medicine."

Prof Ivy Ng
Group Chief Executive Officer, SingHealth

Education is one of the key pillars of our Academic Medical Centre, assuring there is a robust pipeline of well-trained health professionals now and for the future. AMEI has been an engine underpinning education initiatives in the AMC, fostering a sense of community for educators across disciplines and providing a resource of cuttingedge educational expertise. The success and impact of AMEI is reflected by the more than 3000 individuals who have participated in its programmes. I look forward to the continued evolution of AMEI, providing the world-class training and education that will support our staff in their efforts to transform healthcare."

Dean, Duke-NUS Medical School

The Academic Medicine Education Institute (AMEI) synergises the educational expertise of Duke-NUS and SingHealth to form a community of passionate interprofessional educators and leaders in education. The institute was set up in support of SingHealth’s pursuit of Academic Medicine, where education is a key thrust. Our ultimate goal is to improve patient care by upholding education excellence.

AMEI offers educators' development programmes tailored to different levels of clinician educators, whether you are a doctor, nurse, allied health professional, oral health professional or healthcare administrator, and regardless of the years of teaching experience you have. At AMEI, we are united by one passion – the desire to better nurture the next generation of healthcare professionals to improve patients’ lives.

The institute also recognises and supports the academic advancement of outstanding clinician educators, and is dedicated to equip educators with best teaching practices that ignite the potential of students. By inspiring educators to promote care innovation and improved outcomes, we can transform tomorrow’s healthcare education.
