Programme Outline



The 1-month orientation is designed to expose our MAs to Singapore’s public healthcare landscape and prepare our MAs to take on various functions and leadership roles within NHG. MAs will take part in an array of exclusive activities, including cross-institutional sharing sessions, learning and networking opportunities with NHG leaders and senior MAs.

Cross-functional Rotations

Our MAs will be exposed to a wide spectrum of healthcare operations through three different rotations, each spanning a period of 7 to 8 months. This gives them a holistic understanding of the various functions within this industry and the opportunities to hone transferable skill sets, enabling them to build a meaningful career in healthcare. The functional groups include but are not limited to the following:

Patient Operations

MAs can expect themselves to be involved in projects directly impacting our patients’ experiences. These include departments such as Clinic Operations, Allied Health Services and Pharmacy.

Support Operations & Services

MAs will have the opportunity to support the complex backend operations of the healthcare systems. These include departments like Emergency Planning, Resource Management and Facilities Development Office.

Corporate and Strategic Planning

MAs will be exposed to healthcare administration and planning from a macro perspective, driving change at the system level. These include departments like Population Health, Organisational Development, Planning and Development.

Graduation from Programme

After 2 years, MAs will graduate from the programme and take on full-time positions in the respective institutions to further specialise their skill sets and build their healthcare careers. In addition, MAs will have the opportunity to continue their leadership development journey through various opportunities in their respective NHG institutions.


Monthly Club Sessions

Monthly MA club sessions are held for MAs to learn from invited speakers on a diverse range of topics, as well as to engage in cross-institutional learning about each other's job rotation.


Engagement with Senior Management

MAs will be given opportunities to engage Senior Management, learn from their experiences and connect with them in an informal setting, such as through coffee chats.

​ ​​

Coaching and Mentorship

Each MA will be assigned a coach or a mentor to guide them throughout the duration of the programme. Coaches and mentors provide an alternative perspective for MAs to nurture them in their professional development journey.


​Developmental ​/ Special Projects

In addition to individual departmental work, MAs will embark on a series of intra- and cross-institutional projects where they will be challenged to learn beyond their departmental work and become better leaders.



MAs are provided with learning resources in the form of developmental workshops to strengthen their business and technical skill sets such as project management skills.
