Since 2015, Frontier Healthcare Group has been sponsoring the Gold Medal Award annually to top graduates from Republic Polytechnic in the Diploma in Health Services Management (DHSM) programme. This award recognises the outstanding academic achievements of DHSM graduates. DHSM is the first and only programme in Singapore which seeks to train the next generation of healthcare administrators to adapt to the constantly evolving healthcare landscape.
This year, Frontier Healthcare Group is glad to sponsor the gold medal award again. All 6 students who joined our internship programme (for academic year 2020-21) have received excellent academic reports. 3 out of the 4 student interns have received a Pass with Commendation (PC). One of the students, Alicia Cheong Wai Kay, has just secured her place in the Singapore Institute of Technology to pursue her Bachelor of Science in Dietetics and Nutrition, a four-year direct honours programme. She shared that her desire to become a dietician was cemented during her stint at Frontier through her constant face-to-face encounters with patients. Alicia is motivated to help patients lead a healthier lifestyle through their diet. Another intern, Jenna Teo Qi En, has joined the Frontier family as a full-time staff upon graduation.
Attached is a picture of Eloise Lai Jia Xin who has received the gold medal this year. Eloise is currently working part-time as a Clinic Assistant in a neighbourhood clinic. She has recently clinched a place in Nanyang Technological University’s Nanyang Business School to pursue her Bachelor of Business, a 3-year direct honours programme. We are privileged to support and mould the next generation of healthcare administrators.
