Prof Kandiah Satkunanantham

I started working in NUH in 1985, when NUH received its first patients. My job comprises a good mixture of clinical work, teaching undergraduate students and post graduate doctors, as well as research and publication in medical journals. Our main focus is on the patients, constantly looking for the best way to care for them while nurturing good doctors for the future.

I think most doctors will tell you that achieving good outcomes for patients and building a good rapport with them give us most satisfaction. In NUH you never work alone. I am always interacting with someone. While we are all focused on excellence based on science, there is camaraderie – we are colleagues and friends.
