Duke-NUS Medical Student Research Fellowship

Duke-NUS Medical Student Fellowship

 

The Duke-NUS Medical Student Fellowship (Duke-NUS MSF) is an AM-ETHOS initiative which provides funding support for Duke-NUS Medical Students who are undertaking their Year 3 research/scholarly projects with a Mentor from the Academic Clinical Programme (ACP).

The Duke-NUS MSF hopes to spur the Duke-NUS Medical Students’ academic interest and experience, and at the same time, strengthen the Medical Student-ACP Mentor and ACP engagement. This is important for Duke-NUS as an academic medical school and for the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre to identify student talents early on for medical pipeline development. 

“The Duke-NUS MSF is a testament to the SingHealth
Duke-NUS AMC's dedication to nurturing clinician-scientists from the get-go. This fellowship has enabled physicians-in-training to pursue academic inquiry to a deeper level, while also providing invaluable opportunities to be immersed in dynamic and exciting clinical fields of their choice.”

Class President – Class of 2017,
AM-ETHOS Duke-NUS MSF Awardee

“The Duke-NUS MSF award has given me the financial opportunity to collaborate with the Department of Radiology for research, which would have otherwise been unfeasible. The award has also been a great learning experience on how to formulate, write and execute a grant.”

  1. Duke-NUS Medical Students should be role models to their juniors.
  2. There should be an increase in the amount and quality of interaction and stronger partnership between the ACP Mentor and the Duke-NUS Medical Student so that it could provide further opportunities for collaborative projects.
  3. ACP Mentors should be able to identify and assess potential Medical Students with strong academic interest and mentor them in their area of interest.
  4. The ACP should have line-of-sight of potential Medical Students so that they can be further developed should they be part of SingHealth Residency.
  5. The ACP Mentor and his/her host institution are required to submit the necessary Financial Reports (Schedule 2-5) at the end of the Project to the Joint Office of Academic Medicine (Duke-NUS).
