Healthcare Courses – Join the MDIS School of Health and Nursing (SHN)
The MDIS School of Health and Nursing (SHN) is dedicated to training and educating healthcare professionals pursuing their post-registration courses in healthcare. The School was founded to equip students with the latest knowledge and skills in healthcare to allow graduates to carry out their profession at the highest levels of competencies in Singapore. The School will deliver the Bachelor of Science (Hons) Healthcare Management (Top-up), Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Nutrition Science and Bachelor of Science Nursing (Top-up) in partnership with UK universities.
With increased life expectancies and the prominence of lifestyle diseases (e.g. diabetes and obesity), healthcare is set to play an increasingly important role in Singapore. Set against an ageing population, Singapore's healthcare landscape will inherit the standard challenges and pose a few specific to a predominantly geriatric population. This signals the continued need for nursing and other healthcare professionals in Singapore.
In addition to the Bachelor of Science Nursing (Top-up) post-registration degree, SHN will launch a series of skills-based and postgraduate healthcare-related courses in Singapore to address the rising demand for skilled healthcare workers.
