The Yale-NUS & Duke-NUS Liberal Arts and Medicine Pathway shapes future clinicians who appreciate the interconnectedness of the sciences, social sciences and humanities in medical practice. Through the broad-based education at Yale-NUS College, graduates will be well-trained in the art of inquiry, enabling them to think and reason in a way that leads to greater cross-fertilisation of ideas and new solutions in healthcare.

The pathway allows students to be admitted to Yale-NUS College and simultaneously receive a conditional admission to the graduate entry MD programme at Duke-NUS Medical School. Students on this pathway will still have to submit formal applications to Duke-NUS at the end of Year 3 of the student’s tenure at Yale-NUS. All successful students will complete the full curriculum of Yale-NUS and graduate with a BA/BSc(Hons) before proceeding to join Duke-NUS.
