Education Group 

The Department instructs undergraduate students at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS), in Anaesthesia through a dedicated two-week posting in the fourth year of their five-year medical school. Anaesthesia instruction is also extended to our residents, as well as rotating residents from various disciplines and restructured hospitals.  

The Education Research Group actively publishes research on new pedagogical methods, particularly focusing on the learning of essential skills like endotracheal intubation and simulation exercises such as Cardiac Anaesthesia Simulation Training. These research projects, supported by grants from NUS, are implemented into the teaching curriculum. 
Currently, the Group is engaged in a variety of projects, including simulation, skills acquisition, patient safety, peer teaching, gamified learning and feedback provision. An important objective of the Group is to translate research findings into effective teaching methodologies for students and residents. 
Team Leader: 

The NUHS Anaesthesiology Residency Programme strives for excellence in residency training, with the goal of enabling each resident to reach their highest potential. Our academic mission centres on the development of high-quality and well-rounded specialists in anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine.
