The objective of this programme is to nurture promising young clinicians by supporting them with seed funding and training funds to embark on their research. We encourage applicants to use this funding to conduct a pilot experiment or project. The results can be used to increase the chances of clinching external competitive grants which include the NMRC New Investigator Grant, Transition Award and the Clinician Scientist Award.
This two-day workshop is designed to be interactive; consisting of short didactic sessions and hands-on practice of the essential skills needed for simulation-based healthcare education. Participants will work in groups to run their simulation scenarios, discuss the common pitfalls encountered, and receive feedback on these sessions. They will also have an opportunity to share their experiences and exchange ideas on integrating simulation-based learning into their existing curricula. This workshop is aimed at faculty who are interested in using simulation methodologies to enhance their curriculum.
This one-day workshop is meant to provide both undergraduate and postgraduate faculty with additional skills to facilitate an effective debriefing session. Participants will be exposed to different debriefing techniques and strategies and work in groups to discuss and role-play various debriefing situations using both standardized patients and high-fidelity simulators. They will also evaluate debriefing sessions, receive feedback on their debriefing techniques and reflect on areas where their debriefing can be made more effective.

To effectively manage educational programs requires good leadership and managerial skills. Very often, medical and health professionals and educators are given those roles without adequate training and exposure. This course is to introduce the foundational principles and best practices in managing programs and leading educational development. At the end of the workshop, participants should be able to discuss best practices in course management and leadership and apply the principles of good management and leadership to one’s own educational environment to identify strengths, limitations and ways to improve.
