Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore’s first US-style graduate-entry medical school, offers innovative Doctor of Medicine (MD), PhD, and MD/PhD programmes with a focus on medical research. The programmes prepare doctors who are not only skilled in patient care, but who are also well equipped to practise in the rapidly changing world of medicine – essentially, physician leaders who are problem solvers committed to improving the health of individuals and communities through research. The Duke-NUS MD degree is jointly awarded by Duke University and NUS, while the PhD degree is awarded by NUS.

Recognising the excellent preparation that the Yale-NUS College’s integrated liberal arts curriculum can provide towards a career dedicated to medical research and patient care, Duke-NUS is keen to admit top graduates from Yale-NUS to its programmes. These students would include those who have demonstrated an aptitude and interest in becoming clinician scientists and academic leaders in medicine.

The Pathway in Liberal Arts and Medicine is offered jointly by Yale-NUS College and Duke-NUS Medical School for liberal arts students who are planning to pursue a career in medicine. The Pathway was established by Yale-NUS and Duke-NUS with the aim of shaping future clinicians who appreciate the interconnectedness of the sciences, social sciences and humanities in medical practice.

The Pathway allows students to be admitted to Yale-NUS College and simultaneously receive a conditional admission to the graduate-entry Doctor of Medicine (MD) programme at Duke-NUS Medical School.

Students who complete the Pathway will graduate with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours or Bachelor of Arts (BA) Honours degree from Yale-NUS College, followed by a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from Duke-NUS Medical School.
