The faculty members are not only highly skilled and experienced but also incredibly passionate about their roles as mentors and educators.

he NHG Family Medicine residency training program is robust and adaptive to ensure we get both depth and breadth of exposure in primary and tertiary healthcare settings. However, the real asset of the residency is in its people. This is a program worth going through because we are closely mentored by tutors and seniors who genuinely care about training us to become competent yet empathetic family physicians to care for a population worth serving and giving our best for."
