SingHealth Duke-NUS Cardiovascular Sciences Academic Clinical Programme

An Academic Clinical Programme (ACP) is a cluster-wide framework for all clinical specialties to advance in Academic Medicine with resources and funding support from SingHealth and Duke-NUS. Each ACP brings together specialists in a particular discipline from different institutions to maximise the power of shared knowledge and resources. The formation of ACPs taps on the combined strengths of the partnership between the SingHealth Group and Duke-NUS Medical School. Research, scholarly work and education contribute to the enhancement of patient care. ACPs give recognition to clinicians who have been contributing actively to teaching and research as multi-disciplinary teams that strive to improve patient care and outcomes.

The SingHealth Duke-NUS Cardiovascular Sciences ACP was part of the second wave of ACPs rolled out in late 2012.

The Cardiovascular Sciences ACP is built upon three strategic thrusts:

       a.    Maintain the lead in innovative cardiac care
       b.    Raise training and education to new heights
       c.    Strengthen and achieve targeted breakthroughs in research

These correspond to the three key programmes of Research, Training and Education, and Clinical Services.
