Historical Programs

Programs facilitated by our office that are no longer active.

The AM Administrator Fellowship, which is an Administrators Development program, funded by Duke-NUS, provides an opportunity for key Administrators from SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Clinical Programmes (ACPs) and Joint Institutes to become outstanding Administrators through broader exposure and development opportunities by means of collaboration efforts with Duke Medicine, Durham, USA. We are currently continuing the program via remote venues. 

Faculty Mentoring Program

The AM-ETHOS Academic Mentor Development Fellowship provides an opportunity for the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre (AMC) Academic Clinician Faculty to become an Academic Mentor Development Fellow – understudy to an experienced Senior Faculty Mentor as Academic Mentor from Duke Health, Durham, USA.

2017-2018 Academic Mentors and Fellows 

2016-2017 Academic Mentors and Fellows 

The Fellow Exchange Program is designed to provide training opportunities for both SingHealth and Duke fellows.  The learning experience would focus on developing clinician scientists and advancing skills in clinical sub specialties.

Innovative Collaborative Research Projects

Duke University and Duke-NUS Medical School (Duke-NUS) are pleased to announce a call for proposals for collaborative bio-engineering pilot projects between faculty based in Durham and those based in Singapore. The ultimate goal of this program is the development of international innovation teams that advance translational and clinical medical technologies towards commercialization. For purposes of this RFP, medical technology is defined as application of organized knowledge and skills in the form of devices, procedures and information technology systems developed to solve a health problem and improve quality of lives.

Awards will support novel ideas, applied research, potential products, nascent services and creative projects that if successful, will lead to new opportunities in the market. To receive funding, projects must demonstrate a potential path to subsequent financial support, new company formation, licensing, not-for-profit partnering or other channels to enable translation. Applications will be evaluated according to the scientific merit of the proposal, the strength and clarity of the collaboration between the Duke and Duke-NUS Co-PIs, and the future potential for commercialization.
