College Coat of Arms and Motto

The Coat of Arms of the College was designed by its members. In the centre of the shield, the chevron, symbolises the coming together of all medical specialties to provide the best medicine care for the nation. The two children represent paediatrics and healthy children. The snake coiling around the rod symbolises "healing". The four circular red dots joined together by olive leaves symbolise the four races living harmoniously in Singapore and in the pink of health. Supporting the shield are two lions which represent Singapore. The olive branches symbolise anointing and medicinal values. The motto "Recta Sapere" urges us to seek and savour the truth at all times.



College Constitution

The governance and constitution of the College is determined by its Memorandum and Articles of Association and its By-laws. The Council is empowered to make amendments to the By-laws. However, amendments to the Memorandum and Articles of Association must be passed by the House.
