The Ministry of Health’s (MOH) vision is to champion a healthy nation with our people – to live well, live long and with peace of mind. As an open country constantly exposed to an interconnected world, Singapore faces complex issues in public healthcare. MOH constantly grapples with new challenges brought on by an increasingly globalised world, a rapidly ageing population and rising expectations. MOH’s responses to these challenges include preventing and managing the outbreak of diseases such as SARS and Influenza A (H1N1), designing a healthcare system that delivers care in an integrated and effective manner, growing the capacity and capabilities within the sector, and managing healthcare inflation.

As an MOH officer, you will be involved in formulating and implementing policies that guide Singapore’s healthcare ecosystem. You will work alongside a team with varied skills and backgrounds, but with the common goals of (i) promoting good health and reducing illnesses; (ii) ensuring that Singaporeans have access to good and affordable healthcare; and (iii) pursuing medical excellence. Your work will have far-reaching impact on the health and lives of Singaporeans.

You will play an important role to build a professional healthcare workforce to meet evolving national healthcare needs through training and development and manpower regulations. Specifically, you will lead a team and collaborate with healthcare industry, regulators and academia to:

  1. Identify prevailing training needs based on current and emerging healthcare service models;
  2. Organise and coordinate between industry and academia to deliver training and development that is relevant to the evolving national healthcare needs; and
  3. Direct training resources to facilitate workforce transformation.
