Current Programmes

Global Health Training Modules for Medical Students

Riding on Duke-NUS Medical School's CARE (Connect, Assimilate, Reflect, Explore) curriculum framework, SDGHI is offering global health modules to the Year 2 students' curriculum. The goal is to raise their awareness and understanding of how global health issues impact the practice of medicine. Through a blended learning approach, the Institute hopes to produce outstanding clinicians with global views and equip them with the skills to address future health healthcare challenges.

 

Global Health Introductory Programme for Residents

The Global Health Introductory Programme for Residents aims to introduce key global health topics to residents and stimulate their interest in tackling global health challenges in the future. The programme comprises 12 hours of lecture modules to be offered over a 3-year period during the residency. The training of residents will commence in the Academic Year 2019/2020.

 

Global Health Doctoral Scholar Track Programme

The Global Health Doctoral Scholar Programme is open to current students of the Duke-NUS' PhD programmes, namely Integrated Biology and Medicine, Quantitative Biology and Medicine and Clinical Sciences, who have substantive interest in global health and have a SDGHI faculty as their research advisor. Under this track, the scholars will undertake high quality innovative research on relevant global health challenges in the region. In addition to fulfilling their required class work of their PhD programmes and global health research projects, the Scholars will be required to participate in SDGHI's monthly Global Health Seminar Series and attend a course on "Principles of Global Health".


Global Health Fellows Programme

With the aim to groom future global health leaders, SDGHI organises the Global Health Fellows Programme which provides fellows from Academic Clinical Programme (ACPs) to advance their careers in global health. As part of this programme, these fellows will have the opportunity to obtain SDGHI scholarship to pursue a Masters of Public Health, with a global health track, at Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health. In addition, the fellows may apply for research grants from SDGHI for their field research projects.


Global Health Seminar Series

To enhance our SingHealth Duke-NUS AMC community's awareness and appreciation of global health issues, SDGHI organises regular series of seminars and activities.
