Dr Raj Menon completed his undergraduate training at the National University of Singapore and embarked on specialist training in General Surgery with the Department of Surgery, NUH. He completed his fellowship exams with the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh and embarked on further training in Trauma and Vascular Surgery. He was awarded the Academic Medicine Development Award and completed a fellowship with the Royal London Hospital in Advanced Trauma and Vascular Surgery in 2018.

His main clinical interests lie with the management of complex polytrauma patients and the use of novel endovascular techniques in their management. He is also interested in the development of national and regional trauma systems, trauma epidemiology and the psychosocial effects of trauma. He also runs the Surgical High Dependency Unit, a multi-specialty critical care unit focusing on acutely ill surgical patients.

A keen educator, he has been actively involved in undergraduate education, both in surgical curriculum development, as well as a phase director for undergraduate surgical education with the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine. He was awarded the Dean’s award for teaching excellence in 2014, 2015 and 2016, the Outstanding Tutor award by the Medical Society in 2015, and NUHS Teaching Excellence award in 2017.

Dr Raj has also been actively involved in the organisation and running of the General Surgery residency programme in NUHS. As a graduate of the pioneer cohort of the Singapore Chief Residency Programme run by the Healthcare Leadership College and as the Chief Resident of the surgery programme in NUH, he developed an interest in post graduate training and mentoring. He functioned as the principle core faculty for the PGY1 Programme in General Surgery in 2017 and is now the Associate Programme Director of the General Surgery Residency Programme in NUHS. He is also the Co-Director of the NUHS Residency Leadership Development Programme, which equips chief residents with the skills necessary to take on junior leadership positions within their departments.
