NUHS-Harvard BIDMC Internal Medicine Conference

This conference started off as a partnership between NUHS and Harvard-BIDMC as an internal medicine conference targeted at residents with the aim of helping them keep abreast with updates in medical fields as well as to help them bridge the knowledge to practice gap. In the midst of our ongoing COVID battle, we aim to put together a Medicine conference that can energize and refresh all doctors and arm everyone with exciting updated knowledge to provide top-notch care.

The NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine is Singapore’s pioneering medical school with a history of 117 years. Its pursuit for all-rounded excellence stems from its desire and deep-rooted commitment to improve health in the region and world, throughout all levels of society. As an Institute of Higher Learning, the School is invested in the two pillars of education and research to produce healthcare practitioners who are committed to using their clinical knowledge and skills to value-add and create global impact and discoveries surrounding health and medicine.

The National University Health System (NUHS) is one of three public healthcare clusters in Singapore, and an integrated Academic Health System and Regional Health System that delivers value-driven, innovative and sustainable healthcare in Singapore. 

We leverage our unique position as an Academic Health System to tap on the wealth of resources residing within the National University of Singapore (NUS). Through collaborations with NUS faculties, we are able to draw upon their academic, research and creative capabilities to develop solutions for existing and emerging health and healthcare needs.

As a Regional Health System, we work in close collaboration with community hospitals, general practitioners, family medicine clinics, nursing homes and other community partners to provide integrated care to the community.

With member institutions under one Academic Health System, NUHS creates synergies as a fully integrated cluster to provide seamless care, develop solutions for Singapore's healthcare challenges and nurture the next generation of healthcare professionals.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is part of Beth Israel Lahey Health, a new health care system that brings together academic medical centers and teaching hospitals, community and specialty hospitals, more than 4,000 physicians and 35,000 employees in a shared mission to expand access to great care and advance the science and practice of medicine through groundbreaking research and education.

BIDMC is a world-class teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School and is located in the heart of Boston.

We are passionate about caring for our patients like they are family, finding new cures, using the finest and the latest technologies, and teaching and inspiring caregivers of tomorrow. We put people at the center of everything we do, because we believe in medicine that puts people first.
