The Foundation sees education as a lifelong commitment.
Our nurses, doctors and staff make up the backbone of SingHealth operations. A strong investment in our people is fundamental in ensuring a pool of talented and passionate professionals can meet the growing healthcare needs of tomorrow.
The Foundation co-funds the Health Manpower Development Programme (HMDP) with the Ministry of Health. This has enabled more SingHealth Healthcare professionals to acquire new skills, harness new technology and find new solutions for our patients from renowned overseas training centres.
The SingHealth Alice Lee Institute of Advanced Nursing (IAN), a programme made possible by a donation from Lee Foundation, conducts comprehensive nursing specialisation programmes and practice-based training. To meet a growing demand of its training programmes, the institute moved out of the Outram Campus to its new facilities at Bestway Building at Prince Edward Road. It is expected to see about 8000 healthcare staff undergo its courses each year.
A strong investment in our people will help ensure that we can continue to put Singapore at the forefront of medicine.
