Singapore is widely recognised for achieving a high standard of healthcare for its citizens by implementing an efficient and effective system. Life expectancy continues to be among the highest globally, with the average person living to 83.93 years in 2022.
To continue providing this level of care, healthcare and social services professionals need to upskill according to the rapidly evolving needs of an ageing and increasingly diversified population.
The key competencies in high demand are in:
- Community Care
- Gerontology / Geriatrics
- Interprofessional Collaboration
- Health Technology Assessment
- Data Analytics
- Health and Wellness
