Division of Endocrinology
The Division of Endocrinology provides care across the full spectrum of diabetes mellitus and endocrine disorders, including thyroid, pituitary, adrenal, gonadal, calcium, bone, and metabolic disorders. We are a tertiary referral centre and our services cover both inpatient and outpatient care. With our multidisciplinary team of doctors and allied health professionals, we are committed to providing quality integrated clinical care.
In line with the aim of NUHS to Shape Medicine for the Future, we are actively involved in research, as well as the undergraduate and postgraduate medical and allied health professional training. In addition, members of staff are key opinion leaders within their specialties and advise the Ministry of Health on clinical guidelines and practices.
Our areas of research span from the bench to bedside to population health and include large epidemiology programmes, detailed metabolic assessments and profiling, cellular and molecular biology, clinical trials and new models of delivering healthcare. We have active collaborations with international and national universities and institutions alongside many joint studies and projects with other schools and departments within the National University of Singapore.
We are one of the ACGME accredited centres for advanced training in Endocrinology. We have an active overseas fellowship programme which is recognised regionally, with successful trainees returning to practice in countries such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam. Our staff are active members and contributors to the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine undergraduate medical training and faculties and tutors in the ACGME accredited internal medicine residency programme.
