Dear Reader,

Our unique identity as a university hospital extends to more than providing clinical care. It's about intertwining this care with research and teaching.

In the spirit of this, we're excited to launch the NUH Global Fellows Alliance at the inaugural University Hospital Health Summit next month. Having trained more than 800 fellows in over two decades, we're now extending our commitment to healthcare professional development on a global scale. Clinical fellows who train with us can look forward to a network that offers ample resources for professional development, mentorship, and knowledge sharing. By extending our expertise to medical professionals from various countries, we hope to contribute to the growth of a more cohesive professional community, which in turn, helps elevate the standard of healthcare in the region.

Many of our clinicians have been instrumental in establishing NUH as a respected academic medical centre, and it is with their knowledge and accomplishments that we are able to advance medicine locally and in the region.

We are proud to see two of our senior clinicians receive this year's National Medical Excellence Awards (NMEA) by the Ministry of Health, Singapore. Professor Tan Huay Cheem has been honoured with the National Outstanding Clinician Award at the NMEA for his excellence in clinical service, and outstanding leadership and stewardship in revolutionising the cardiology service in Singapore and elevating it to world-class standards. From setting up an emergency intervention service to devising strategies that save precious time during heart attacks, he has consistently raised the bar in patient care.

We're are also very proud of Associate Professor Mahesh Choolani who received the NMEA National Outstanding Clinician Scientist Award, for his contributions to developing the clinician scientist community in Singapore, and his outstanding leadership in revolutionising the obstetrics and gynaecology (O&G) field. His pioneering work in non-invasive prenatal testing has transformed the landscape of O&G, and found a valuable role in the National University Centre for Women and Children (NUWoC).

For IVF patients, NUWoC's embryologists go a step further to perform advanced genetic testing on the blastocysts - the furthest stage of embryo development outside the womb - to identify embryos with the best chance for a healthy pregnancy.

We hope you will enjoy this issue of EnvisioningHealth - Changing Lives One Idea at a Time. If you haven't already, we invite you to subscribe to EnvisioningHealth to stay updated with the latest from NUH.

Yours sincerely,
Professor Quek Swee Chye
Chairman, Medical Board
