Scholarship holders are only able to pursue Medicine or Dentistry under the following two types of scholarships:
(1) PSC Scholarship (Medicine) or PSC Scholarship (Dentistry)
From the 2017 PSC Scholarships Selection exercise, the PSC Scholarship (Medicine) and PSC Scholarship (Dentistry) are offered to existing local medicine and dentistry undergraduates, who have completed at least one year of studies, including those who are currently pursuing the MD programme at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School. The objective is to strengthen the pipeline for public healthcare and professional leadership.
(2) President's Scholarship
A very small number of full-term Medicine and Dentistry undergraduate scholarships will continue to be offered to those awarded the President's Scholarship, which allows full flexibility in the course of study both locally and overseas. In your PSC scholarship application, you should indicate your interest to read Medicine or Dentistry under the career and course preferences section. This would provide the interview panel a more accurate understanding of your academic and career preferences. If you do not obtain a place to study Medicine or Dentistry, you can still be considered for a PSC scholarship to read other courses.
