A new medical undergraduate bursary will help pay for the studies of financially needy students at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.
The OncoCare Medical Bursary has been established by the OncoCare Cancer Centre. Its founding director, consultant medical oncologist Dr Tay Miah Hiang, is an NUS Medicine alumnus (Class of 1992) and was also an undergraduate bursary recipient.
“We are a Singaporean medical group and we want to do something special in this 50th year of our country’s celebrations. We also want to celebrate the official opening of our third OncoCare branch at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Orchard on 7 February 2015. This bursary is a meaningful way for us to do so, and we hope the students who are helped by this will in turn be inspired and encouraged, and remember to step forward to help those less fortunate one day,” said Dr Tay.
Said Associate Professor Yeoh Khay Guan, the Dean of the School, “Our students are talented, motivated and totally committed to becoming the best doctors that they can be. While many are supported by their families, we have a number of deserving students who struggle with worries over finances. A bursary takes the load off their young shoulders and allows them to focus on their studies, and we are very grateful to OncoCare Cancer Centre and our other donors for their kindness and generosity.”
