Duke-NUS Medical School was established through a landmark collaboration between two world-class institutions: Duke University and the National University of Singapore (NUS), with the objective of providing innovative education and impactful research that enhance the practice of medicine in Singapore and beyond.
As a graduate-entry medical school, Duke-NUS attracts the brightest minds from a range of backgrounds, who bring with them significant academic and life experiences. Our MD curriculum is designed to provide an opportunity for our students to become outstanding clinicians and curious, critical thinkers who may also contribute to medicine as researchers, educators, leaders, entrepreneurs or policy makers. This is the basis of our “Clinician First, Clinician Plus” curriculum.
Along with our innovative educational programmes, we are a research powerhouse and our distinguished scientists are transforming the way we understand, diagnose and treat diseases. Our world-class signature research programmes are aligned to critical areas of public health needs in Singapore. These disease-focused, multi-disciplinary programmes have facilitated research discoveries that will improve the lives of patients in Singapore and around the world.
