Professor Wong Tien Yin, NUS Provost’s Chair Professor and Vice Dean, Academic & Clinical Development at Duke-NUS Medical School, is among an elite group of 100 individuals—and only the third from Singapore—to be elected to the US National Academy of Medicine (NAM).

Academy membership, one of the highest honours in the field of health and medicine, is bestowed on individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievements and commitment to service in the medical sciences, healthcare and public health.

Prof Wong, who is also Deputy Group CEO for Research and Education at SingHealth, was elected to the Academy for his work on defining the global prevalence and risk factors for major eye diseases, devising screening and disease prevention strategies using telemedicine and innovative imaging as well as his leadership in developing academic pathways for clinician scientists.
