​NHG Diagnostic Radiology Residency Programme

Resident's Talk

“Radiology is the perfect combination of my interests in technology and medicine…. It gives us a window into the human body and to find out what ails it.”

Dr Alvin Soon
Alumni, Associate Consultant, TTSH Department of Diagnostic Radiology

Am I eligible for the programme and how do I apply?

For general queries on residency application and eligibility, please refer to this page for more information.

What kind of assessments do I have to undergo?

In year 1, resident will be required to pass the National Plain Film examination. Subsequently, the resident will need to clear the MMed (DR)/ Final FRCR Part B examinations before he/she enters the R5 year. Then, at the end of the R5 year, he/she will have to pass an OSCE style examination before he/she can exit from the programme.

Residents will also be required to take the Diagnostic Radiology In-Training (DXIT) examination annually.

How do I increase my chances of being accepted into the NHG Residency Programme?

The potential resident should firstly establish email contact with the Programme Director, telling the director of his/her interest. This email should contain a CV with a passport-sized photograph. The potential resident should also arrange for a 6-month MO rotation either with the Departments of Radiology in TTSH or KTPH. During this rotation, we will assess the potential resident’s suitability for further training as a resident. Although we carefully consider all applications, our programme highly values clinical experience in ED, General Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Urology, and General Medicine.
