The Lee Kong Chian (LKC) School of Medicine, a joint venture between Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Imperial College London, will leverage on its proximity to Tan Tock Seng Hospital and other nearby healthcare facilities to foster hands-on learning. The building, which is to become the school’s headquarters, will be equipped with teaching facilities and state-of-the-art audio and video technology by the time it welcomes its first intake in August 2013. A new high-rise Clinical Sciences building, which will come on-stream in 2015, will also be located at the Novena Campus.

The campus is to be a dual-one, with a third facility – the Experimental Medicine Building at NTU’s Yunnan Garden Campus – slated for completion in 2016. This will be located within NTU’s biomedical-engineering cluster to enable tie-ups between researchers and students from the LKC School of Medicine and NTU’s School of Biological Sciences
