NUS Medicine Public Health Service – For those around us

Your decisions affect a world larger than yourself.
Stay healthy. Get screened.

The Public Health Service (PHS) is a preventive medicine arm of the NUS Medical Society. It was initiated in 2004 by medical students from the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.

Our motto is “Promoting Health, Spreading Awareness”. This in essence summarises what PHS does as a health service – promoting the health of the local community through a population-based approach using both primary and secondary prevention strategies, while spreading awareness of the need and means to look after one’s own health through our health education programmes.

Our annual flagship public health screening event is free and covers various modalities from phlebotomy to geriatrics screening. Besides medical students from the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, our volunteer pool also consists of students from the Alice Lee Centre for Nursing Studies, pharmacy students, medical students from the NTU Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, as well as health professionals and staff from our partner organisations.

Aside from our health screening event, we have also piloted our Young Health Ambassadors’ Programme in 2015, in a bid to make the youth of Singapore become bastions of health education.
