Dr Khoo Hwee Sing

Principal Research Analyst, Health Outcomes and Medical Education Research (HOMER), NHG

PhD (Management & Organisation)

This motivates her to view research through different theoretical lenses, and incorporate phenomena into research for educational and practical applications. At HOMER, she works closely with institutional stakeholders and fellow researchers on population health and health professions education research.
