Lee Kong Chian School Of Medicine (Novena Campus)

A Place for Immersive Learning

The Clinical Sciences Building at the Novena campus houses state-of-the-art learning spaces and advanced research facilities that support the delivery of innovative medical education and research. Custom-designed facilities such as the Anatomy Learning Centre and the Centre for Clinical Simulation, offer immersive and life-like clinical experiences.
