Extraordinary Opportunities Ahead for Singapore's Brightest Talents

On 5 August 2013, the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine) warmly welcomed our inaugural cohort of 54 medical students. Our cohort size has since grown exponentially, matriculating about 150 aspiring young doctors yearly, who learn and work with some of the best talents in healthcare and medicine.

We developed an innovative hi-tech, hi-touch curriculum that combines the best of our parent universities, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and Imperial College London – leveraging the strengths of NTU in engineering, biomedical research, and the humanities, and Imperial’s top-ranked medical curriculum. Our graduates receive a MBBS degree jointly awarded by both world-class universities.

Alongside this mission to produce doctors who put patients at the centre of their exemplary care, LKCMedicine embarks on transformative research within the walls of its laboratories.

With the support of the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health; our primary clinical partner, the National Healthcare Group and other healthcare partners; sister medical schools as well as key research institutes in Singapore, we advance the science of medicine through discoveries and inventions that are of national and global impact.

Our students and faculties explore the boundaries of medical science for better patient management, working towards competent and compassionate delivery of care, as well as breakthroughs and solutions in medicine and healthcare for our population and beyond.

To this end, we are happy to welcome Singapore’s brightest students and scientists to join our LKCMedicine family.
