What You Will Learn

Do you believe an active and healthy lifestyle is the key to happiness? Inspire others with this belief and make a real difference in the world!

The Diploma in Health Management & Promotion (DHMP) allows you to do that and more. You will learn the required skills to actively practise and promote holistic well-being among the Singapore population, from pre-school children and youths, to adults and the elderly.

The government consistently encourages wellness, promoting national health schemes and diseases prevention programmes to keep residents aware of the benefits of healthy living. As a DHMP graduate, you can play a meaningful role by being a health educator.

I hope to be able to use the knowledge I have gained from my DHMP course to educate and promote holistic healthcare to people across all age groups.
