Foreword

The Musculoskeletal Sciences ACP (MSKSC ACP) was launched with effect from 1 July 2016. The birth of this new academic clinical programme aims to build upon the foundation already laid by Surgery ACP, which is to promote advances for the musculoskeletal specialties within the surgical community. MSKSC ACP strives to achieve continual improvements in clinical outcomes and integrated clinical care for musculoskeletal patients. This is coupled with the pursuit of our academic mission, which is to provide a holistic education for surgical trainees and clinicians; as well as to develop a strong team of clinician researchers to drive medical innovation in the field of musculoskeletal sciences. In addition, we aim to establish a philanthropic culture within the ACP.

In MSKSC ACP, we are proud to have many dedicated clinicians and staff making outstanding contributions to academic medicine. It serves to open up broader pathways for all to redefine their roles in institutional clinical practice, thus allowing for greater recognition for those with a keen interest in education and research. In so doing, nurture and deepen their commitments.

With the aim of making strong advancements towards the different pillars of medicine, namely, clinical care, education and research; the introduction of MSKSC ACP represents a major milestone that will undoubtedly go a long way in the progression of musculoskeletal sciences at SingHealth.
