Undergraduate Programmes

SNEC is a major training ground for undergraduate ophthalmic education. We provide comprehensive clinical ophthalmology training for NUS-YLL medical students in their 4th year of study. The undergraduate programme is designed to include lectures, didactic teaching sessions, skill transfer demonstrations and clinical attachments, through which students would have direct interaction with patients and be actively involved in patient care.  

In addition, SNEC accepts medical students from Duke-NUS for a 2-week clinical electives as well as a month-long sub-internship where students are attached to two of the subspecialty disciplines in SNEC.

All students are provided with ample opportunities to participate in patient examination and management of patients under the guidance of their clinical tutors. On site exposure in the operating theatre is scheduled for students to observe surgery for treatment of various ophthalmic conditions.
