“When I was in university, I was extremely busy and had no time to exercise!” 23-year-old Tong Shuk In laughs heartily, explaining the reasons behind the weight that she gained while she was in school a few years back.
The additional weight that she put on is now consigned to the annals of history; the Physiotherapist sitting in front of us is the epitome of fitness. She regularly runs with her colleagues and even finished in the top 10 in her organisation’s annual cross country run.
Looking trimmed and toned in her white coat, Shuk In regales us with tales from the hospital, explains her reasons for becoming a Physiotherapist, and reveals a world that’s not just made up of sanitised hallways and men in white coats, but one that is a mix of compassion, gratitude and hope.

Singapore’s healthcare industry model is widely lauded and copied throughout the world due to its efficiency and cost-effectiveness. One of the flag bearers in this field is the National University Health System (NUHS), which groups the National University Hospital (NUH) and the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and the Faculty of Dentistry under a common governance structure to create synergies to advance its tripartite mission of excellence in clinical care, research and education. This vision cannot be achieved without its team of healthcare professionals. .
