Quotes from Eu Yan Sang physicians who had participated in the Eu Yan Sang Residency Programme.

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.

I am deeply honoured and grateful to be among the first to receive this scholarship from Eu Yan Sang, a household name in Singapore.

I appreciate the opportunity to begin my TCM journey here, a place to learn, to hone my skills and to grow.

The one-year residency program provided me a platform to learn from the many well-respected and knowledgeable Senior Physicians in Eu Yan Sang. I would like to thank my wise mentors for their support and guidance, that allows me to transit smoothly into independent work upon completion of the program.

Eu Yan Sang has witness my growth over the past 12 years, I appreciate and cherish all the connections formed with the colleagues and patients that I have crossed path with. I’m grateful to be given this opportunity to hone my skills and impacted many lives that I have touched.

With over a hundred years of history, Eu Yan Sang has established itself as a household brand and a forerunner in the TCM field in Singapore. Thus, for me, the opportunity to hone my TCM skills in this organization was something I had always desired.

The 18-month Resident Physician Programme designed for us upon inculcation into the company serves as a great learning platform, bridging our theoretical knowledge of TCM and the real issues faced in clinical practice. In this programme, I have the chance to observe and learn from several reputable senior physicians in the TCM industry, as well as to acquaint myself to the workings of the company. I believe that after these 18 months of experiential learning, I will be equipped with the necessary expertise to establish myself as a worthy TCM physician.

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.
