In compliance to the measures implemented, Duke-NUS Medical School strongly encourages all students to adhere to the requirement, so as not to cause any disruption to their clinical training, which are mostly held within healthcare institutions. Please be informed that the inability to complete any training as required by the school, will lead to a delay or even failure to graduate from the school.
Additional health requirements upon acceptance to Duke-NUS are currently under review, in keeping with local health mandates. Applicants who are offered admission will be apprised of health screening and immunization requirements.
