NHG Pathology Residency Programme

Resident's Talk

“I chose pathology because it bridges scientific foundation of medicine to clinical applications."

Dr Nicholas Koh
Resident

A Pathologist examines tissue and cytology samples to diagnose the presence of or extent of disease, so as to assist other clinicians in managing and monitoring the health of their patients with illnesses. Our programme trains the resident to be a proficient Pathologist who is also able to undertake administrative duties in the Pathology Laboratory.
