Quotes from Eu Yan Sang physicians who had participated in the Eu Yan Sang Residency Programme.
Resident Physician Pee Yun Ting, Anita (Scholar; Residency In Year 2015) :
The residency programme has allowed me to learn from top physicians and gain knowledge that would no doubt serve me well in my practice. Rotations between physicians with different areas of specialty provided sufficient exposure to the various fields in TCM. In addition, my mentoring physicians were very willing to teach and share their experiences. Ample opportunities given by my mentors enabled me to test my skills under close supervision. Looking back, this programme has also equipped me with the necessary skills and confidence for independent practice. Moreover, having been tasked to give TCM talks to a variety of audiences throughout the course of residency, my public speaking has vastly improved. I am grateful for the chance to go through the residency programme and it is my strong belief that the programme will be highly beneficial for future aspiring TCM physicians.
Resident Physician Ong Wei Jun, Jeffrey (Scholar; Residency In Year 2015) :
I would like to thank EYS for providing me a great opportunity to follow and learn from the respectable senior physicians. Under their caring supervision, I had the chance to master the art of communication with patients and hone my clinical skills at the same time. This one-year-long program built me the confidence and experience to handle patients on my own. Special thanks to my Supervisory Physician and my Mentoring Physicians for helping me improve in terms of personal development and clinical knowledge during my rotation at their clinics.
Resident Physician Neo Min Jun (Scholar; Residency In Year 2014) :
The programme was very helpful in preparing me to be a physician. As I get to see a wide array of diseases, patient prototypes and the treatment results. It allowed me to be better prepared in handling questions from the patients and their doubts. Better equipped me with more tools, medical knowledge and general knowledge.
In general, I think the residency programme is necessary and I appreciated the company and teachers' efforts to help guide me through the year. The 1 year experience with different teachers gave me knowledge and techniques which textbooks couldn't convey. Do continue with this programme, it's very beneficial.
