Editor's Corner

By Nicole Lim
The LKCMedicine Editor

As Singapore celebrates its 50th anniversary as a nation, LKCMedicine contributes to the festivities through a unique exhibition that embodies our young School’s very ethos – Humanity in Medicine. Our faculty and students also give their take on how to stay true to this fundamental aspect of medicine and talk about what motivates them to go the extra mile.

This August, we also welcomed 90 new medical students who’ve started their learning in our brand new Experimental Medicine Building and we get to know some of them in this issue.

You can also find out more about our innovative House system with our handy guide on the back page. And of course, we have a roundup of the latest news and events, including LKCMedicine’s new PhD programme, and highlights of this year’s freshman orientation camp.
