Humans of NUS Medicine
An initiative that debuted on November 16th 2016, features students, staff, alumni and professors of NUS Medicine weekly on the NUS Medical Society social media pages. It aims to uncover the human side of medical students, staff, doctors and educators, acknowledging and advocating the uniqueness of each individual in the NUS Medicine family.

Student Engagement (End of Year Giveaway)
An Instagram lucky draw was held on the last 10 days of school of the year (preclinical calendar) where 10 lucky students walked away with limited edition Medicine Laptop Sleeves. The students were asked questions based on the theme of “End of Year” and were featured on our social media pages.
NUS Open Day
The Public Relations Directorate takes charge of representing NUS Medical Society during the annual NUS Open Day at our booth at the NUS University Town Student Village. Through publicity materials, merchandise and booth games, the Public Relations Directorate hopes to showcase the vibrant student life in NUS Medicine to prospective students and the public.
A programme targeted at pre-university students, the Public Relations Directorate hopes to give prospective students an insight into NUS Medicine curriculum and our dynamic student life through talks and presentations by our own medical students.
