DID YOU KNOW: Out of the 11 polytechnic graduates who scored places in the medical schools at National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) this year, six are from SP — the highest number from a single polytechnic to be accepted into local medicine degree courses!
Diploma in Biomedical Science (DBS) graduates Kimberley Lim, Alicia Yip, Kenny Sung,
Foo Yu Wah and Sylvia Phua, as well as Diploma in Biotechnology (DBT) graduate Peh Ting Yong, will be enrolling into NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and NTU Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine. They join the pool of 27 SP graduates who have enrolled in local medicine degree courses since 2010.
The six of them took some time off their schedules to share how their interest in medicine was ignited, and some of their hopes for the future.
Share your plans for the future!
