Spirit of Saving Lives

Due to tightened safe management measures, this programme has been cancelled. We will be in touch with participants who had signed up, to arrange for full refunds.

Three national monuments that stand within the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) compound bear testament to this country’s medical history – the College of Medicine Building, Tan Teck Guan Building and Bowyer Block. Be inspired by the generosity of members of the Chinese community such as Tan Jiak Kim, as well as passionate doctors such as Lim Boon Keng, who dedicated their lives to laying the foundation of Singapore’s medical education and healthcare system. At the same time, learn more about SGH’s role during the Japanese Occupation.
