College Coat of Arms

The Crest has a central shield which upholds four perspectives that typify the Emergency Physician.


The Star of Life symbol has six points presenting Detection, Reporting, Response, On Scene Care, Care in Transit and Transfer to Definitive Care. The staff on the star represents Medicine and Healing.


The Tree of Knowledge signifies the need to nurture and grow the frontiers of knowledge, and use the knowledge wisely without misuse. The Scales represent balance and equality regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion or social status. The Atomic symbol reflects the need to explore the frontiers of Research in an environment of Academic Emergency Medicine.


The two young lions represent the hope for Singapore - both men and women to lead the push for better emergency care of patients and to lead the world in service, research and education.


The ribbon colours (Red with White lettering) reflect our national colours. Red symbolises universal brotherhood and equality. White symbolises pervading and everlasting purity and virtue.


The motto 'Saving Lives' is our core responsibility in the care of our patients.
