A Membership Privilege of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore

 

Dear Fellow Academicians

 

The first promise of the modern Hippocratic Oath, cited by all locally graduating physicians in Singapore- is that one “will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow”.  The critical role of education in the field of Medicine was already recognised from the oldest edition of the oath, when one was to “hold my teacher in this art equal to my own parents”.

 

The concept of a teacher in the context of modern medical education can now be extrapolated beyond that of a human being, but the wealth of teaching resources, knowledge and information made available by modernisation and technological advancements.

 

The Academy of Medicine Singapore and its Colleges and Chapters have always been committed to promoting lifelong learning and constantly look to facilitate clinician education.  The product of this commitment includes the Geriatric Medicine Modular Training Programme, In-Training Examinations (ITEs), Self-Learning Modules (SLM) and now, a members-only weekly bulletin of objectively-selected and rigorously-summarised articles from the latest issues of the most prestigious journals, that will bring up-to-date information to busy clinicians - thereby helping them keep abreast with recent progresses in other fields of medicine.

 

As the burden of disease increases, the acquisition and successful dissemination of healthcare knowledge cannot stagnate or the field of Medicine would indirectly but unequivocally be regressing - at the ultimate detriment to our patients.  Where continuous learning for the purpose of improving patient care is concerned - in the words of Hippocrates again, “may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help”.
