Problem solving skills and an opportunity to read medicine at top Columbia University.
"I appreciated how Problem-based Learning encouraged me to identify new solutions for current medical conditions. I was also fortunate to be given the opportunity to undertake internships at both the National University Hospital Surgical Centre and Genome Institute of Singapore.
There are many opportunities for individuals to excel and be recognised for their hard work at RP. For my efforts, I was awarded the A*Star Polytechnic Science Award/Scholarship, and the Board of Governors Gold Medal for Most Outstanding Graduate of the Year.
I am enrolled in a nine-year MD/PhD program at Columbia University, and have since carried out medical protocols quicker than my peers there because I had already been exposed to them at RP. My experience in real research environments is also very useful to what I am doing now."
