Neuroscience Academic Clinical Program

An Academic Clinical Program (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. 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 Neuroscience Academic Clinical Program (ACP) was part of the second wave of ACPs and it was rolled out in April 2012.


Improving Clinical Care, Education and Research in Neuroscience

The Neuroscience ACP exemplifies the spirit of excellence and values of the National Neuroscience Institute (NNI) in putting patients as our priority. Our mission and goals have always been built on the three pillars of strength to improve the lives of our patients through Patient Care, Education and Research. We have always been involved in academic activities and have a high level of interest in research. 

Academic Medicine involves the entire body of NNI. Clinicians, scientists, nurses, allied health professionals, ancillary and administrative staff have a part to play in it. The introduction of the ACP is a major milestone in NNI’s journey of improving patient care and outcomes. With the formation of the Neuroscience ACP, we can now devote more resources to further achieve our mission of driving innovation in Care, Education and Research. The pursuit of our academic mission is primarily to improve patient care and to transform the delivery of care not only in Singapore but in the region. 


The Neuroscience ACP key appointment holders are A/Prof Ng Wai Hoe (Academic Chair), Adj A/Prof Seow Wan Tew (Academic Deputy Chair, Academic Affairs), A/Prof Au Wing Lok (Academic Deputy Chair, Clinical & Operations), Adj A/Prof Nigel Tan (Academic Vice-Chair, Education) and Prof Tan Eng King (Academic Vice-Chair, Research),
