The Otorhinolaryngology Residency Program at SingHealth is a five-year program built on the premise of progressive responsibility to equip you with the knowledge, skills and attitudes of a proficient otorhinolaryngologist. Critical areas of knowledge and clinical decision-making will be an integral part of your training, with specific surgical procedures outlined on a year-to-year basis. Cumulatively, these form a list of core procedures that a resident is expected to perform independently on completion of training.

You will have the benefit of a comprehensive curriculum with a proven track record, learning from experienced teachers, as well as exposure to a wide-ranging case load. This, coupled with supervised training as well as ongoing assessments and evaluation, will empower you to reach for greater heights as an otorhinolaryngologist.
