Jimmy Lim

What attracted you to medicine and anesthesiology?
To some, medicine is a science, but to others, medicine is an art. The interplay between the certain and the ambiguous in the practice of medicine was what fascinated and attracted me to it. I see anaesthesiology as an exposure to interrelate the 2 worlds ie. that of medicine and surgery. So in a way, it allows me experience all that being a doctor has to offer.

What attracted you to SingHealth for training?
I found the pro-training policies and support of the senior staff to be the main motivating factors that caused me to lean towards the SingHealth training program.

What makes the SingHealth Anesthesiology training unique?
It is able to provide a complete exposure for every field of anaesthesiology practiced in the country. On top of that, with the inclusion of specialized centers such as KKWCH, they have sufficient case loads to ensure every trainee has ample hands on experience during the course of their training.

Anything surprise you about SingHealth’s program?
Although the onus is always on the trainee to ensure they reap the maximum from their training, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the senior staffs are willing to go above and beyond what is required of them to improve your skills and knowledge.

What does your future look like right now?
