The Need for Allied Healthcare Professionals

With an aging population, there is an increasing need for more professional healthcare providers. Ms Theresa Cheong, Head of Allied Health Sciences, EASB tells JobsCentral more about jobs in the healthcare industry.


1) How many allied health professionals are in shortage in Singapore at the moment? What is the estimated figure to be like in the next few years?

We have about 800 physiotherapists and this figure on a per population basis is way behind that of HK and Australia. The HK standard is 1 per 30,000 population, and Australia 1 to 10000 to 12000 population.

The comparative ratio for Singapore is 1 per 50,000 persons based on a population of four million. We will need another 500 physiotherapists to bring the comparative ratio down to 1 in 30,770.

EASB's successful internship programmes enhances employability of its graduates

90% of its Hospitality and Tourism students secured full-time jobs within 3 months after graduation.

In the current tough job market, more and more innovative ways are being used to recruit competent talent, and for graduates to gain full time employment.

Hence, a six-month internship scheme is placed as a mandatory course module at one particular school as a recruitment strategy to boost enhanced employability.

And it seem this scheme has yielded tangible results. According to Sidney Chu, Director, Placement & Training of East Asia Institute of Management, about 90% of EASB’s Hospitality and Tourism students have obtained full-time jobs within the first three months after graduation.

EASB has developed strong internship and immersion programmes with various hotels and travel agencies, such as Sheraton Tower, Mandarin Oriental, Hilton Hotel, Conrad Hotel, Copthorne King’s and CTC Holidays. Employers welcome these internships, and some of the school’s graduates are currently working at the various places they have interned with, including Singapore’s two integrated resorts - Resorts World Sentosa and Marina Bay Sands Resort and Casino.

After achieving a Diploma in Hotel Management from a private institution in Malaysia, she was eager to grow her knowledge of the field by furthering her education.

Similarly, Steven also discovered his love for tourism in his teenage years. He credits his enthusiasm for the industry to the wide range of Korean and Japanese movies about the hotel industry that he used to watch. After graduating from high school in his hometown in Myanmar, Steven came to Singapore for a diploma course in Tourism & Hospitality Management. However, once that was over, he was craving for more.
