​Introduction Message

Post-graduate year 1 (PGY1) is the training year after completion of basic medical education. Completion of PGY1 training makes you eligible for medical registration. It prepares you for future unsupervised independent practice.  In Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), we aim to equip PGY1 trainees with the necessary clinical and non-technical skills, as well as a depth of clinical experience. We also provide a motivating platform to support career aspirants for future residency programmes. You will experience both the breadth and depth of clinical diversity along with the camaraderie of working in a busy restructured hospital. The PGY1 (TTSH) programme promotes a culture of patient safety, advocates protected training time and embraces the work-life balance ethos. You are assured of supervision and mentoring to cater to your educational and training needs as you strive to serve with distinction the cause of humanity, teaching, training and research.

General Medicine

The Departments of General Medicine at TTSH provides training in a wide variety of undifferentiated case presentations. Here, the PGY1 doctor will learn to manage patients in a comprehensive and holistic manner. He/she will also gain the ability to obtain information, arrive at correct diagnoses in a timely manner, and institute appropriate management plans.

General Surgery

The General Surgery Department is one of the only few true generalist department where every specialist still pursues general surgery aside from subspecialist interests; hence case diversity is assured. Through structured teaching and academic activities, the PGY1 doctor will gain exposure to the basics of surgical care in general surgery, surgical critical care, hepatobiliary surgery, colorectal surgery, trauma surgery, breast and endocrine surgery, upper gastrointestinal and bariatric surgery, vascular surgery, laparoscopic and endoscopic surgery, and surgical oncology.

Orthopaedic Surgery

Under the Orthopaedic Surgery rotation, the PGY1 doctor is given progressive responsibility for the care of patients under the supervision of faculty members. He/She will also attain a good grounding in the areas of geriatric medicine, rehabilitation, physiotherapy, and hand surgery, which are crucial elements of Orthopaedic Surgery training.
