What will I learn?

Clinicians are well placed to identify gaps in knowledge that are relevant to the causes, diagnosis and treatment of disease, and to conduct research that will make a significant impact on patient care.

The NUS Master of Clinical Investigation Program was developed by the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine in consultation with the Ministry of Health, senior clinician – researchers from various hospitals and research funding agencies. It has been designed to meet the needs of clinicians in healthcare institutions who desire to incorporate scientifically sound research into their clinical practice.

The goal of the program is to equip clinicians with the basic methodologic and practical skills to design and conduct clinical investigations that are relevant to patient care. These include studies aimed at evaluating:

  • new treatments and technologies,
  • diagnostic modalities,
  • mechanisms of human disease,
  • determinants of disease outcomes, and
  • effectiveness of health services.
