NHG Pathology Residency Programme

Resident's Talk

“I chose NHG pathology as I appreciate the direct supervision, feedback and guidance from the faculty which enables me to improve.”

Dr Luke Tay Ern Wei
Resident Year 3

Introductory Message

"Anatomic pathologists play a key role in diagnosing or excluding cancer. If you are keen on using microscope, analyzing and identifying tissue patterns, leading to the diagnosis of disease, then working as a histopathologist might suit you well. Histopathology is the gold standard test of cancer diagnosis. 
Modern day pathologist has become the person responsible for the integration and interpretation of morphologic and molecular/ genetic information and for the delivery of critical answers to diagnostic, prognostic and predictive queries and playing absolute necessary role in the holistic patient care."
