SingHealth Medical Student Talent Development Award (SMSTDA) Overview

The SingHealth Medical Student Talent Development Award (SMSTDA) is an Academic Medicine Initiative designed to provide developmental opportunities for promising medical students. Some of its key features are:

  • Allow talented medical students an opportunity to participate in academic medicine through engagement with our Academic Clinical Programmes (ACPs) and their faculty.
  • Cultivate and support partnerships and interactions between high-potential medical students and the faculty.
  • Create an opportunity for medical students who are accepted into an established project in any SingHealth institution to experience the implementation of cutting edge research.
  • Enhance learning opportunities for medical students who will gain practical skills and knowledge that are applicable in their careers after graduation.
  • Allow ACPs, Programme Directors (PDs), Clerkship Directors/Coordinators and faculty to better understand students’ aspirations in order to help them develop their career in medicine.
