The Academy started receiving requests in November 2004 for Independent Expert Opinion from the Singapore Police Force for Coroner Cases. The Academy assists by coordinating with its College and Chapter’s for Nomination of the IME. The expert opinion is non-bias and free of conflict of interest, which assist in the investigations of the patient’s demise.



The Singapore Medical Council (SMC) grants temporary medical registration under the Medical Registration Act to cover the short period of time for visiting experts to perform clinical procedures, demonstrations at workshops or to perform surgical operations on selected patients in approved healthcare institutions. Many of these were experts who came to demonstrate at international conferences held in Singapore.


With effect from September 2007, the Academy was tasked with the important role of checking the veracity and recognition of the expertise of these foreign visiting experts by providing verification services to non-restructured institutions who wishes to bring in their own specialists to Singapore for short periods of time.
