Although you are not required to make a binding commitment to Duke-NUS at the time of admission, you should inform Yale-NUS and Duke-NUS of your withdrawal from the pathway at least one year preceding medical school matriculation.

Candidates who decide (for whatever reason) not to continue with the pathway but rather to apply via the regular admissions process to multiple schools are welcomed and encouraged to apply to Duke-NUS as well. While the assurances of the conditional admissions would no longer apply, the Duke-NUS MD Admissions Committee would be happy to consider regular-process applications from candidates in this situation.
