The new NUS appointments will further enhance the synergies between NUS and NUHS as the two institutions work together to build powerful synergies between medical and dental education, research and clinical practice, said NUS President Prof Tan Chorh Chuan.
On the appointees, he said: “We are indebted to Prof John Wong for his transformative contributions to the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, and delighted that we will continue to have the benefit of his talent and energy through his new NUS appointment. In Prof Yeoh Khay Guan, we have a world-class clinician scientist who is a truly worthy successor as Dean. Together with Prof Benjamin Ong, an outstanding leader in academic medicine, they bring a powerful vision, great experience and expertise to medical education, research and care that will create a big impact, both in Singapore and internationally.”
