Advancing Medical Education


The future of Singapore’s vision rests on the shoulders of the next generation of eye care specialists, residents and health care providers.

Training and education funding is necessary to ensure the continuity of quality eye care in Singapore and prevent a dearth of qualified medical professionals.

Your donations to VisionSave help us provide the highest quality of eye care education and training to our clinical, nursing, allied health and administrative staff.

Beyond attending and graduating from academic courses, your funds will enable them to attend conferences and workshops in eye care, both in and beyond Singaporean borders; as well as receive rigorous training on the latest research and industry best practices.

Hear from our staff members from different departments on how your donations have helped them level up in their knowledge and practice of eye care.


Clinical

"VisionSave supported my 4-month stay at the Johns Hopkins University as a Visiting Fulbright Scholar. In conjunction with this prestigious scholarship program, I will be working very closely with the Ophthalmology and Machine Learning Units to further my understanding on the utilisation and optimisation of the artificial intelligence in various eye diseases, which is in line with Singapore’s vision of becoming a Smart Nation."

DR DANIEL TING
Associate Consultant, General Cataract & Comprehensive Ophthalmology Department 
Singapore National Eye Centre

"With the help of VisionSave, I was able to obtain funding to attend the Harvard Macy Education 2.0 - Transforming your teaching for the digital age (HCE) course. It was an eye opener to see the strategies and techniques that other institutions around the world are employing to improve their residency education. Programmes like HCE are expensive and difficult to come by, but with the support of VisionSave, many more clinical staff, nurses and allied healthcare professionals will be able to immerse themselves in these opportunities."

Nursing

"VisionSave funded me to complete the SNEC postgraduate certificate course in clinic nursing (ophthalmology). Through the course, I was able to constantly learning new skill sets while on the job as an assistant nurse clinician, which enhanced my ability to provide better nursing care and patient education." 


GESELIA CHONG

Graduate, Graduate Certificate in Clinical Nursing (Ophthalmology)


"VisionSave has sponsored me for the postgraduate ophthalmology course, which has allowed me to gain more in-depth ophthalmology knowledge as well as better understanding about the disease process of eye problems. As some medical staff may decide to forgo further education due to cost limitations, I fully support VisionSave’s help to sponsor courses that helps them improve their skills."


SOH WEE WEE

Graduate, Graduate Certificate in Clinical Nursing (Ophthalmology)


"Through VisionSave funds, I was able to successfully complete the postgraduate course in clinical nursing (ophthalmology) in March 2018. Through the course, I learned first-hand on how nurses can play an important role in offering patients holistic care and education to deal with their eye conditions. The course has also helped me gain better insight on a patients’ journey, which in turn makes me more confident when interacting with patients so that they feel more empowered."


NAZURAH LOH

Graduate, Graduate Certificate in Clinical Nursing (Ophthalmology)


Allied Health  

"Through VisionSave, I had the honour of attending a short course on 'Leading Innovations in Healthcare and Education' at the Harvard Macy Institute in mid-2017. It was truly an eye-opener for me to learn from education experts from all over the world. I learnt about disruptive innovations, design thinking and involving end-users in our design processes, for better delivery of patient care. Other healthcare professionals can definitely benefit from the training in education, research and other areas of interest beyond their clinical expertise. This enlightening course was an unforgettable experience for me, allowing me to not only improve on the way I communicate with my patients and colleagues, but also encouraging me to participate in multidisciplinary collaborations."

Administration

"VisionSave funded me to attend the Harvard Macy Education 2.0 – Transforming your teaching for the digital age (HCE) course. It was an amazing experience as I got to meet people from all over the world and learn educational strategies, techniques and experiences as an educator from them. I am excited to start an online induction program for my international fellows as part of the fellowship initiatives. VisionSave creates opportunities for our doctors, nurses and allied health professionals to pursue and motivate their interest for a better patient care and professional development."
