We are at the forefront of innovation. See how we are leading breakthroughs with our research, education technology and student-centred programmes. 

Future Forward: Our Innovation

Live Simulation

Watch our NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine students save the life of a simulated patient involved in a serious road traffic accident, guided by NUS Medicine alumnus Assoc Prof Suresh Pillai, Emergency Medicine, NUS. NUS Medicine leverages on technology to help nurture and train outstanding 21st-century medical practitioners. Beyond the classroom, these high fidelity simulation training sessions enable our students to practice in a simulated, controlled and safe environment.

Microsoft Hololens

The NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and Microsoft are breaking boundaries and transforming the frontiers of healthcare education with mixed reality. With three levels of difficulty, students will be able to practice clinical procedural skills such as inserting a cannula, as well as inserting catheters in male and female urinary tracts. 

The Medical Grand Challenge

This is a year-long medical innovation programme started by the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (NUS Medicine). It aims to encourage medical students to identify unmet healthcare needs and to work collaboratively with students from other faculties to form interdisciplinary teams to explore creative and out-of-the-box solutions to meet these needs.

Virtual Reality in Agitation Management

This programme helps students learn the skills required to handle patients that reflect the behaviour characteristics of patients often encountered by healthcare workers. The goal is to teach medical and nursing students effective management of agitated patients using empathic means, in a safe, repeatable, and controlled manner.
