Transforming Medicine, Improving Lives

Established in 2005 through a partnership between Duke University School of Medicine in the US and National University of Singapore, Duke-NUS Medical School (Duke-NUS) offers robust graduate-entry medical education that is positioned to meet the changing medical landscape and the future healthcare needs of Singapore.

Apart from medical education, Duke-NUS also has a research arm that boasts scientists at the forefront of their fields, and leading research capabilities. Duke-NUS adopts a multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary approach, leveraging on state-of-the-art technology platforms that are opening up new horizons for research. The five cutting-edge signature research programmes that span basic, translational and clinical research aim to make a substantive impact on Singapore’s biomedical sciences scene, with each extending from fundamental or discovery science into the translational and clinical realm.

Together with Singapore Health Services (SingHealth) as our strategic partner in Academic Medicine, Duke-NUS is poised to transform medicine with its integrated expertise in clinical care, education and research that are focused on transforming medicine and improving patients’ lives.
