Study Trip 2017

MSKSC ACP organized a study trip to Duke University Health System (DUHS) in Durham, North Carolina and two other healthcare institutions in New York; Manhattan, Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital and Hospital for Special Surgery. It took place from 1st to the 6th of January 2017.

The trip was an opportunity for the various disciplines under the MSKSC ACP to explore new frontiers and grow capabilities in their research, education and clinical innovation to enhance patient care. This is in line with SingHealth Duke-NUS’s vision of becoming a vibrant Academic Healthcare Cluster. Clinicians and administrators were able to observe and harness the best practices of these renowned Academic Medical Centres and thus, develop future collaborations with our counterparts in these institutions.
