Duke-NUS Medical School

The Duke-NUS Medical School was established through a landmark collaboration between two world-class institutions: Duke University and the National University of Singapore (NUS), with the objective of providing innovative education and impactful research that enhance the practice of medicine in Singapore and beyond.

Duke-NUS’ curriculum is patterned after that of the renowned Duke University School of Medicine in Durham. The school is part of the National University of Singapore system, but it is unique in that it is overseen by a governing board, including a Duke representative who has veto power over any academic decision made by the board.
