Bologna University Study Grants for International Students

Saturday, January 5, 2019

Minister for Education Ong Ye Kung paid a visit to the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (NUS Medicine) on 3 December. During the visit, he spoke to NUS Medicine Dean Associate Professor Yeoh Khay Guan and Vice-Dean (Education) Associate Professor Lau Tang Ching and discussed the School’s undergraduate medical training strategies and research highlights.

Assoc Prof Yeoh and Assoc Prof Lau highlighted NUS Medicine’s focus on integrating community service and empathy into the academic experience, expressed through programmes like the longitudinal patient programme — which sees students visit and befriend chronically ill patients, as well as student-led projects like the Neighbourhood Health Service and the Public Health Service.

Following further discussions with Assoc Prof Yeoh, Assoc Prof Lau as well as Professor Emily Ang, Head of the Alice Lee Centre for Nursing Studies (NUS Nursing), the minister took the opportunity to meet and chat with students from NUS Medicine, NUS Nursing as well as NUS Social Work and NUS Pharmacy, where they shared with him their motivations and reasons for their choice of studies, as well as experiences of university and campus life.
