NTU to set up new medical school: PM Lee Hsien Loong

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced that Singapore’s third medical school will be a tie-up between NTU and one of the leading medical schools in Britain, Imperial College London. The Imperial College-NTU Medical School will take in 150 undergraduates a year, helping to meet Singapore's increasing demand for doctors. Mr Lee said that Singapore needs to train more doctors due to a bigger, ageing population. The new school will create more places for those who wish to study medicine. It will also attract good international students who may live and work here as doctors, he added.
