The MD is jointly awarded by Duke University and the National University of Singapore (NUS) while the PhD is awarded by NUS.  If you are keen on pursuing the MD, you should first have a bachelor’s degree in any discipline (except the MBBS).  For those interested in pursuing the PhD, you would need a bachelor’s degree in Science.  For more information, please visit our website: https://www.duke-nus.edu.sg/admissions
