Towards its goal of digitalising healthcare and supporting the training of healthcare professionals worldwide, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has designated the Centre for Population Health Sciences (CePHaS), a centre in NTU’s Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, as its first Collaborating Centre for Digital Health and Health Education.

Preceded by five years of collaborative work with the WHO, the initial designation as collaborating centre will last four years. During this term, Assoc Prof Josip Car, Director of CePHaS and the WHO Collaborating Centre, will lead a team that will work with WHO and Singapore’s Ministry of Health on the use of digital health tools for the education and training of the health workforce.
