1. Post-graduate Education:
The Division of Infectious Diseases provides comprehensive advanced specialty training (AST) in the principles and practice of infectious diseases. At completion of our AST programme, ID registrars are eligible for certification by the Specialist Accreditation Board of the Singapore Medical Council. The goal of our programme is to prepare registrars for careers in clinical infectious diseases, including clinical investigation, basic science research and academic career tracks.
Our three-year AST programme offers a unique balance of clinical experiences, flexible research opportunities, as well as friendly faculty expertise in the broad range of practice areas within our subspecialty – general ID, HIV/AIDS, transplant ID, infection control & hospital epidemiology, travel medicine, microbiology, antibiotic stewardship and outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy (OPAT). Inpatient and outpatient clinical experiences in these areas are complemented by a variety of weekly conferences and didactic series.
Our division also offers a one-year attachment, accredited by the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, as well as shorter electives which may be customised according to the needs of the trainee.

2. Under-graduate Education:
Together with the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, the Division of Infectious Diseases is actively involved in undergraduate medical training. We facilitate rotations for medical students in their final year as well as elective postings for those seeking more comprehensive exposure to infectious diseases in Singapore. Our division also organises projects for students who would like to be involved in the infectious diseases research during their undergraduate years. Both Singaporean and foreign students are welcome to join our division for a rotation.
