The NUHS Hand Residency is a six year program developed to train residents into competent and compassionate hand surgeons. It is supported by a group of dedicated faculty, many whom are recognised leaders in their field.
The first two years consists of a Surgery-In-General (SIG) program developing our residents’ ability to manage patients in all surgical specialties before embarking on the journey of sub-specialisation. This ensures that residents are not only trained to be experts in their specialty, but they are trained to provide holistic care within a multidisciplinary team. The following four years of hand surgery training provides residents with exposure to a wide variety of cases and ample research opportunities to develop into a well-rounded hand and reconstructive microsurgeon.
Please contact our departments residency program director Dr David Tan for more information regarding the Hand surgery residency program.
