The mission of our training program is to train individuals to become highly qualified well-rounded anaesthesiologists. They will also play a role as a physician in promoting and providing quality health care to the people of Singapore. The patient population catered to by the hospital is vast, with a resultant high caseload and wide case-mix leading to ample training opportunities. There is exposure to a wide variety of Surgical, Bariatric, Orthopaedic, Ophthalmologic, ENT, Neurosurgical, Dental and Vascular cases, among others.

The clinical facilities in the hospital are state of the art and first-rated. There are 14 fully-equipped operating theatres. The Surgical Intensive Care (SIC) is modern and equipped with 20 beds for the critically ill patients. Our trainees are also exposed to leading edge pain management techniques. Anaesthetists are members of holistic multidisciplinary teams like Geriatric surgical services, weight management programme, acute pain services etc to provide the best care to our patients. Our hospital also has a computerized patient simulation centre, which provides the opportunity for trainees to receive training and practice their skills to become more proficient without compromising patient safety and interests. Clinical research is given high priority actively pursued with several publications in the last few years.
