The Department teaches Anaesthesia to all undergraduate students of the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, during a dedicated two-week posting in the fourth year of their 5-year medical school. The Department also teaches Anaesthesia to our residents as well as rotating residents from other disciplines and restructured hospitals. The Education Research Group publishes research on new pedagogical methods, particularly in the learning of essential skills such as endotracheal intubation, and in simulation, such as the Cardiac Anaesthesia Simulation Training. These research projects, funded by grants obtained from the University, have been implemented into the teaching curriculum.
Currently, the Group is working on a variety of projects, including simulation, learning of skills, patient safety, peer teaching, learning through gaming, and provision of feedback. An important goal of the Group is to translate what works in our research to the teaching of our students and residents.
Anaesthesiology Residency Programme strives
for excellence in residency training and aims to enable each resident to
achieve his or her highest potential. The cornerstone of our academic mission
is the training of high quality and well-rounded specialists in anaesthesia,
critical care and pain medicine.
