Oncology 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 Oncology Academic Clinical Program (ACP) was part of the third wave of ACPs and it was rolled out in January 2013.
