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.

Your work will have far-reaching impact on the health and lives of Singaporeans.

You will play a vital role to develop, implement and administer manpower strategies and initiatives involving healthcare professional manpower standards, regulation, training and development to transform the in-service healthcare workforce to achieve evolving national healthcare objectives.  As a member of a team, you will collaborate with healthcare practitioners, regulators, administrators and educators, to

  1. Organize and coordinate the efforts of practitioners and educators to develop competency frameworks, training roadmaps and programs;
