Internships

The objectives of the MOHT Internship Programme are to engage high quality student interns to understand healthcare transformation initiatives.

 

The opportunity and experience will enable interns to:

  • Experience how MOHT functions to push the frontiers of healthcare innovation;

  • Learn how multi-disciplinary skills interact in transformation projects (e.g. change management with healthcare partners in hospital, primary and community care; care redesign; data analytics; technology insertion and financing redesign);

  • Gain insights to the innovation and development of Singapore’s healthcare system.

MOHT has two internship streams, with the internship period normally ranging from 2 to 6 months: 

  1. General Interns - Fulfilling the skill set requirements of MOHT teams. Open to all local universities (e.g. NUS, NTU, Duke-NUS, SUTD, SMU and SUSS) and good foreign universities.   

  2. Asian Medical Students' Association Singapore (AMSA SG) Interns – Medical students from the 3 local medical schools (NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NTU Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, Duke-NUS Medical School) via the MOHT-SIMSA flagship internship programme.

My MOHT journey opened my eyes to the modern workplace, especially during the uncertain times of this pandemic. I learned to approach projects with systems thinking, account for future changes and balance decisions and evaluation through data-driven and cost-benefit analyses. I’m happy to have had this safe playground to explore, fail, grow and learn.

I worked in a collaborative environment where the ground users, developers, and product owners co-created one IT product. This valuable opportunity has helped me gain personal insights into the digital transformation required to reimagine health and care.

My internship introduced me to the process of having to understand and scope complex and entrenched problems. I was introduced to key areas of priority, for instance - reaching out to the hard-to-reach in the community. Meetings with key agencies and partners gave me an understanding of the many different initiatives in Singapore and how we may add value to their work.
