Resident's Talk

“We benefitted tremendously from the supervision, apprenticeship, and assigned responsibilities at various stages of our Residency..."

Dr Lau Boon Jia
Alumnus

​“The residency programme structure allows us to be rotated adequately to each relevant discipline/subspecialty including medicine/neurology and 1 year of psychotherapy and this exposure has been really valuable for learning! It would not have been possible to gain such exposure otherwise on our own.”

– Dr Seet Xian Ying, Alumnus, Psychiatry Residency Programme and Associate Consultant at TTSH


“A holistic training experience aimed at creating mental health professionals adept at treating mental illness across the life-span.”

- Dr Ganesh Kudva Kundadak, Senior Resident


“NHG psychiatry residency is a close-knit family which is made possible because of a major advantage of being a national programme; all the psychiatric residents in Singapore, no matter where they work now or choose to work in future, know one another.”

– Dr Chris Tan Ze Jia, Alumnus, Psychiatry Residency Programme and Consultant at IMH North Region


“I chose psychiatry as it is one of the most rewarding, unique, and interesting specialities in medicine. I thoroughly enjoy treating both the physical and emotional aspects of mental disorders in a holistic manner. I am very glad to be part of the NHG psychiatry residency programme as I feel that it offers a structured programme throughout the 5 years with clear educational core values, ensuring that there is a broad variety of clinical experiences ranging from community psychiatry setting, to treating the most serious and chronically mentally ill. There are also plenty of opportunities to explore research interests and education. Lastly I particularly enjoy the fact that there is an extremely close collegial working relationship between the residents and the faculty, not only can I make new friends, but it also enables me to enhance my professional development!”

– Dr Tracey Wing Li Mun, Senior Resident


“We benefitted tremendously from the supervision, apprenticeship, and assigned responsibilities at various stages of our Residency. Through rigorous training, we mature into young psychiatrists with a lifelong thirst for learning.”

– Dr Lau Boon Jia, Alumnus, Psychiatry Residency Programme and Consultant at IMH West Region

"I have found great meaning and purpose in Psychiatry, and have also made lifelong friends. Looking back, I would not have chosen any other programme."
