This is a discretionary recruitment scheme to encourage Singaporean students studying medicine overseas to work as a house/medical officer in our public healthcare clusters after they graduate.
Singaporean students studying in an overseas medical school recognised by the Singapore Medical Council can apply for the Pre-Employment Grant (PEG) midway through their course. The grant covers up to 60% of the remaining years of tuition fees, capped at $50,000 per year, up to a maximum sum of $150,000.
The selection is based on merit. Applicants should possess good grades in their medical studies, especially in their clinical training years. They are also required to undergo an oral interview with Senior Clinicians from the public healthcare clusters and MOH Holdings.
Recipients of the grant will be required to serve in the public healthcare clusters for a minimum period. Those receiving a one-year grant will serve for three years, while those receiving a two-year and three-year grant will serve for four years. The service period will include the one-year Housemanship which is served locally.
