​NHG Family Medicine Residency Programme

Resident's Talk

“The programme's true unique appeal lies in its people - mentors who are committed to our growth, inspirational colleagues who have great work ethics and peers who are always ready to lend a helping hand.”

Dr Chia Lingyi


The NHG family medicine residency program has a good structure, building our basics from the hospital setting then to primary care. There is good support from the faculty members who ensure our growth and development over the years

I am in my year 3 of training in NHGP FM Residency. I chose family medicine because it’s a unique discipline that allows the delivery of holistic care to patients. I enjoy the fulfilling experience when patients take you as their paediatrician/ geriatrician/ endocrinologist/ palliative physician etc. NHGP FM Residency FM program is mature, established and nurturing. They strive to continuously improve the program based on Residents’ feedback and opinion to meet our learning needs. I’ve been enjoying the journey so far!

"Attaining my Master of Medicine (Family Medicine) was not something I could have achieved alone. Throughout my journey in the NHG Family Medicine residency programme, peers, seniors and mentors alike embodied the care and support that we have come to expect of Family Physicians. From clinical competencies to leadership qualities, the programme has certainly nurtured and equipped me with essential skills to continue developing as a Family Physician in today’s rapidly evolving scene of medicine."

- Dr Keith Tan Dihao, Clinical Core Faculty Member

“The FM residency programme included a Resident continuity clinic (RCC) programme in our base polyclinic during our training years. Soon after graduating from the programme, I was given the opportunity to head the first teamlet in AMK polyclinic. The RCC in the FM Residency Programme has given me a headstart as I got to provide continued follow-up with a group of patients under my care. It is fulfilling to be able to use what I’ve learnt during the FM Residency Programme and put it to practice in my current teamlet which provides empanelment of patients. With greater ownership and closer working relationships among our colleagues, we are able to provide overall better care for our patients with teamwork. Patients are happy to see the same doctor and there is improved compliance to treatment.”

- Dr Tricia Chang, Alumna, Lead of Ang Mo Kio Polyclinic Teamlet


"As a graduate of the inaugural batch of NHG Family Medicine Residency Programme, it is an honour to return as a faculty member to guide the juniors with my first-hand experience. The open sharing, well-structured programme, and good faculty make learning fun! The belief 'together, we can achieve more' ignites my teaching passion and my return as a teaching faculty. From residency-we learnt, to residency-we serve, for residency-we come together to achieve more!!!"

– Dr Kee Kok Wai, Alumnus, NHG Family Medicine Residency Associate Programme Director
