Academic medicine is one key component of Singapore’s healthcare priorities. The Academy of Clinician Scientists and Innovators (ACSI) was established with the vision of providing a home for clinician scientists and innovators at the National Healthcare Group and the NTU Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine.
The ACSI’s mission is to improve medicine through early identification of talents, postgraduate education and training, and support with translational research programs. Since its inception, the academy has been committed to promoting excellence in clinical research and fostering the development of clinician scientists and innovators. They are important players in translational medicine to bridge research and clinical practice. ACSI also provides a platform for researchers to work with the best minds in academic medicine, and to exchange ideas on how to do translational research to patient care. Training and development programmes are available to provide our clinicians with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in their field. By supporting their development, ACSI is playing a key role in ensuring that Singapore remains at the forefront of medical research.
