Resident's Scholarly Activities

The programme will offer the resident ample opportunity to participate in scholarly activities. Residents will be instructed on the practical and ethical aspects of research prior to participation and will be encouraged to participate in prospective clinical studies, retrospective studies and perform case write-ups during the 3.5-year Senior Residency. Residents are encouraged to deliver oral or poster presentations at local and regional dermatology scientific meetings such as the National Skin Centre's biennial Dermatology Update and Dermatological Society of Singapore's Annual Scientific Meeting.
