Since 2004, the Public Health Service (PHS) has been a preventive arm of the NUS Medical Society. Every year, PHS organises its flagship health screening event. Due to evolving health needs, PHS has expanded to include health education and follow-up initiatives.
PHS’ vision is to be a first class student-led health service. In alignment with this aspiration, PHS has three organisational aims: 1.To raise public health awareness and inculcate a sense of personal responsibility for one’s own health. 2.To form an effective bridge to integrate of individuals into the local healthcare system. 3.To provide an avenue for YLLSoM students and alumni to collaborate and serve the needs of the community.
PHS strives to achieve these aims in accordance with our motto "Promoting Health, Spreading Awareness" by firstly, reinforcing positive health behaviour using a population-based approach, and secondly, spreading awareness of the need and means to look after one's own health via health education.
