Student Interest Groups
SIGs are self-initiated and self-run groups consisting of students with a common interest in a particular speciality.
SIGs seek to meet these 2 objectives at 2 different levels:
Provide more information about the speciality to the general school population
Provide more targeted information and opportunities to members

The LKCMedicine Anaesthesia SIG is a student interest group that aims to serve as an avenue for LKCMedicine students to explore the exciting field of anaesthesiology, critical care medicine and pain medicine. We hope to highlight and promote appreciation for the important and diverse roles that anaesthetists play in the hospital ecosystem.
In bringing together like-minded students who share a strong interest in the specialty, we hope to build up the interest and knowledge in anaesthesia of each individual. We also aim to provide a platform for interaction between students and professionals, allowing members to gain greater insights into anaesthesiology residency and future career paths as a specialist.
Altogether, we seek to serve a meaningful role and contribute to the personal and professional development of the student body - for members and the larger student body.
LKCMedicine Emergency Medicine (EMed) SIG serves to bring together students with an interest in EMed. We aim to broaden students' exposure to the residency through a wide variety of student- initiated events, ultimately helping to further students' interest in EMed and understand what a career in EMed entails.
If you share our interest in EMed, do consider joining our SIG! Membership is open to all M1 - M5 students.

The Family Medicine SIG was established to promote greater awareness of family medicine amongst students. We seek to bridge the gap between students and doctors through networking sessions to allow students to better understand the roles and demands of a family physician.

Valuable research opportunities are also offered to our members to cultivate their interests in the specialty and for members to contribute to the ever-growing field of family medicine research. We hope that through the SIG’s activities you will be able to discover the joys of Family Medicine and realise that this is the specialty for you.
