Official Opening: Welcome & introduction to Duke-NUS Medical School

As a graduate-entry medical school that attracts the brightest minds, Duke-NUS welcomes students from diverse pathways and academic disciplines, who bring different expertise and perspectives to the medical profession. At Duke-NUS, we believe such diversity in our students is our strength. It promotes robust brainstorming, encourages critical thinking and helps develop key skills expected of future clinicians. Our graduates are curious, progressive and innovative. They can challenge paradigms to achieve the best possible care for our patients and contribute to the improvement of the healthcare sector.
