Pioneering a New Medical Curriculum

The School has ambitious aims to redefine both medical education and research. Starting a new medical school gives us the chance to innovate and introduce best practices of medical programmes around the world. The LKCMedicine curriculum, adapted from Imperial but designed to ensure relevance to the Singapore population and healthcare system, aims to lay a firm foundation in the basic medical sciences while providing students with a high quality clinical experience. The curriculum emphasises the clinical relevance of the basic sciences and students will have patient exposure from the beginning of the programme.
