NHG ​Hand Surgery Residency Programme

Resident's Talk

"I am drawn to the challenging variety of surgical skills that... is obvious in the quintessential Hand Surgery operation, the replant."

Dr Lai Jen Ming


Introduction Message

Hand Surgery is a specialty that involves the management and treatment of traumatic injuries to the hand and the entire upper extremity that contributes to the function of the hand. This programme trains the resident to restore the strength, function, and flexibility of patients' wrists and fingers.

The Hand Surgery Residency National Programme is a 4-year training programme that offers the resident a well-rounded and comprehensive training by renowned hand surgeons. Apart from learning how to operate on hand traumas and congenital hand deformities, the resident will also learn how to perform flap surgeries. This ensures they are well-equipped with soft tissue management of the upper and lower limbs.

The resident will rotate through other elective postings including the Plastic Surgery and Orthopaedic Surgery departments so as to gain more exposure during training. He/she will also attend workshops on tendon repair, wrist and distal radius, and arthroplasty.

As of the July 2020 intake, new residents will be enrolled under the Singapore Integrated Programme (SGIP) for Hand Surgery, with National University Health System (NUHS) as the administrative centre.
