Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP)

The Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine is committed to training outstanding doctors to serve the community and patients with care and integrity. We strive to establish the School as a centre of research excellence. To achieve this, a key approach is to develop and nurture our students to meet the research challenges of the 21st century. A research programme called the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) is available for our medical undergraduates. Through UROP, undergraduate research in basic science and clinical departments are conducted under the supervision of faculty staff. Students who participate and contribute in UROP will have due credits endorsed in their final-year academic transcripts. In addition, research projects of excellence may be submitted for consideration for research prizes awarded by the School.
