SNEC Professorship in Clinical Education in Ophthalmology

The establishment of the SNEC Professorship in Clinical Education in Ophthalmology is intended to continue our founding father, Professor Arthur Lim's legacy and inherently strong belief that teaching and education are integral, and should remain perennial in the cultivation of the next generation of ophthalmologists, and eye care professionals across the spectrum of eye care delivery, in Singapore, and across the region. This Professorship will serve to continue Prof Lim's vision of ensuring that Singapore and the surrounding region remain at the forefront of ophthalmology training and educational activities and that our ophthalmologists, researchers and other eye care professionals and support staff (nursing and allied health as well as administrators) are well-trained in the latest and state-of-the art techniques, and other relevant skill sets, are involved in certification and credentialing courses that continuously reinforce skills, safety, ethical practice and the ability to treat our patients towards even better outcomes.

This Professorship will pave the way towards grooming and supporting our ophthalmologists, researchers and other eye care professionals and support staff (nursing and allied health as well as administrators) with the relevant resources to assist them in their teaching and mentorship roles. It will further lead to the establishment of fellowships and postgraduate teaching and mentoring programs. Beyond the teaching of students and postgraduates, it is hoped that funds generated via this endowed professorship will further lead to educational scholarships/awards, as well as support the development of ophthalmology modules, curriculum and teaching methodologies. The Professorship is supported by a gift from the SNEC Health Research Endowment Fund.
