Post-graduate Year 1 (PGY1 - Medical)
Post-graduate year 1 (PGY1) programme is the training year after the completion of basic medical education. It is a prerequisite for medical doctors to become eligible for medical registration or before embarking on medical residency training.
PGY1 trainees will be exposed to the breadth and depth of clinical cases and specialties, and equipped with the necessary clinical and non-technical skills preparing you for future unsupervised independent clinical practice. Our experienced and dedicated clinicians will also guide you through an enriching learning experience with effective supervision and mentoring, and a supportive environment for your development as future doctors.
Doctors who are interested in advancing their practice have 26 medical specialties to choose from, of which 15 specialities are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education – International (ACGME-I), 3 by the Joint Committee of Specialist Training (JCST), and 8 by the Accreditation of Postgraduate Medical Education Singapore (APMES).
For each speciality, residents will go through a structured system called rotation blocks, which allows them to gain a wide range of learning and training experiences relevant to their preferred area of specialisation. Residents will also undergo regular formative assessments to ensure his/her systematic progression towards becoming lead practitioners in their respective speciality.
