Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore, one half of the Academic Medical Centre (AMC) partnership with SingHealth, celebrates its 10th year of founding this year.  

Dean Designate Professor Thomas Coffman, in an interview with TODAY news paper, listed out his priorities for the next five years, among which is to get more doctors from academic parter SingHealth to embrace teaching. 

He said that the move means working with clinicians in the country's largest public healthcare provider to improve teaching skills and let them experience greter joy in the education of students.  

Students from the graduate medical school must also take full advantages of the opportunities as they move through the SingHealth system.  

This interdependant relationship should carry forth in the grooming of physician-scientists, for the long-term fruition to influence patient care, another goal in Duke-NUS' grand scheme as an AMC with SingHealth.
