I learnt all of my Podiatry skills at NUH. The team is a small but very friendly team. Everyone helps each other to complete the daily tasks. It is a good place to gain plenty of clinical experience, especially in wound care and nail surgery.
Pros
Broad Scope of practice, amazing Podiatry team
Cons
Unable to cope with volume of patients, management not allowing for more headcount

As a student intern with the Nutrition & Dietetics Department, I learned a lot from the dietitians at NUH. Though my peer and I had to see many patients in a day due to high workload, I was able to challenge myself and ask many questions during the internship. The workplace culture was friendly and open. My peer and I were able to apply what we had learned in theory into practice during our placement at NUH. I will love to have the opportunity to work in the hospital again!

An environment where you learn how is the hospital bill like staying different ward class. Hardest part of the job is seeing those very old people without family and struggling to pay bills for themselves.

I shadowed under medical doctors as they performed their medical routines. I was able to watch clinic consultations, ward rounds and even an operating theatre session.

Working in NUH you have to be extremely dedicated and hard working. The job required to be on your feet the hole day.It was hard to communicate with other pharmacists and i felt my knowledge was not being used. As a pharmacy graduate it gave me an inside to how it would be to work as a pharmacist. A very different work culture from Europe where i am most used to work in.
Pros
intelligent staff, effective management
Cons
stressful environment

Cons
Not a great training hospital for hands on

worst job for a diploma graduate. management doesn't care at all and you have to report even when you are going to the toilet. it's not worth it. there are way better jobs with more respect out there.
