Continuous Learning and Innovation
To ensure a closer alignment between the health needs of the population with the skillsets of healthcare professionals, it is imperative that TTSH and institutions within the National Healthcare Group as well as other stakeholder organisations, work closely with the third medical school and other education and training bodies to develop holistic training curriculum and programmes.
LKCMedicine, the third medical school features an innovative and modern curriculum, with students taught by world-class experts, working in teams in a high-tech environment and gaining experience from the start in various actual settings where healthcare is delivered.
Plans are in the works for two more buildings for learning – Tan Tock Seng Hospital’s medical education and training building, as well as a future health sciences school.
The aim is to create facilities that will synergise with one another, enable different groups of healthcare professionals to constantly upgrade their skills and integrate clinical training such that multi-disciplinary care teams can be more adept and effective. To empower in the community, caregiver training will also be conducted within these new buildings.
