i did 3 weeks in singapore general hospital. i found the experience not that dissimilar to firms in london. i was doing surgery so i was expecting it to be a bit hardcore with early starts. i found people generally friendly and willing to teach. in sgh, there were loads of medical students and many elective students around too.

all the doctors speak english. only problem is that some patients only speak chinese.

i had a great time exploring singapore, and you can use it as a springboard for weekend trips away to other south east asian countries too!

A few of people in my year went on their elective to Singapore (there's probably more than what I'm thinking of). Want me to message you their names so you can Facebook stalk?

I realise this is an old post, but I'm also a foreign student (from Glasgow Uni =D) applying to do electives in Singapore, and I was wondering what accommodation is like? And what hospitals we can apply to?

I'm a 5th year medical student, interested in applying at SGH for elective postings, but I keep getting the same reply (that my application cannot be processed) from the listed email of the associate dean in their website. But I am still yet to send in my application. I wonder why is that Would anyone know if they are currently not accepting applicants?

Hello, I'm from Singapore (studying in UK) and did my electives, SSC and random postings when I'm home. I've been in KKH (kedang kebrau...not kangdang) twice and NUH. Foreign students are treated the same as local students. You might be shocked at the amount of knowledge the locals have in their heads...it was scary to me but actually, everyone is super friendly and the juniors are great at teaching. Hospitals are sweltering, especially in the 'lower class wards' with no air conditioning
