Beyond medical school and housemanship, our doctors keep themselves abreast of changes in medicine generally, particularly in areas relevant to their practice. This is to ensure that our patients are provided with up-to-date medicine and the best quality care.
It is for these reasons that the Singapore Medical Council (SMC) has made Continuing Medical Education (CME) compulsory for all doctors in Singapore with effect from 1 January 2003. CME consists of educational activities that serve to maintain, develop or increase the knowledge, skills and professional performance of a doctor.
At the NCIS, CME talks are conducted by medical staff and primarily for GPs, Nursing and Allied Health professionals. These CME talks qualify as core points only for GPs who attend.
Oncology Grand Rounds
Oncology Grand Rounds are held monthly by the NCIS and feature lectures, topic reviews or case studies by senior specialists or invited local and overseas consultants for both doctors and other healthcare professionals within the hospital with an interest in oncology. They are usually held on the first and third Wednesdays of the month.
1 CME point will be accredited by SMC for each session.
