What Students/Alumni Say

I am thankful for the opportunity to work with experienced healthcare professionals and engage with a wide range of patients during my hospital attachments. These experiences fuelled my passion for healthcare and motivated me to pursue Medicine to deepen my skills. I believe the rigorous training at HS will shape me into becoming a better doctor.

I was inspired to join the medical profession by the nurses who helped care for my godfather during his final moments. The heart they put in their work made me realise my calling. That’s why I am truly grateful for all the opportunities the school has provided to help me realise my passion.

It’s taken a tremendous amount of sacrifice to juggle both my nursing studies with my sporting passion, but it’s definitely worth every effort to not only realise my dreams of representing Singapore as a national athlete, but also keeping to my commitment of helping others in the nursing profession.

The OPT course prepared me well for the industry as an optometrist. It also gave me the confidence and skills to put myself in leadership positions. Once travel restrictions are lifted, I look forward to volunteering in overseas ICARE community service events as a way of paying it forward for the opportunities I’ve had.

My greatest takeaway from my internship as a student optometrist was the chance to observe the entire process of ortho-k fitting and after-care for young kids. I also had ample opportunities to conduct eye examinations and engage parents in caring for their child’s eyesight. The experience has sharpened my clinical and people skills, and prepared me well for a career in optometry.

As a Nursing student, I was given the opportunity to serve others and experience the intricacies of the healthcare system. I hope to use my knowledge and experiences to deliver better care to patients in the future.
