Dr. Deepa Omprakash was awarded the Nomination Scholarship in Malaysia and subsequently attained her MBBS from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) New Delhi, the top medical school and tertiary hospital in India. Her undergraduate years had exposed her to a wide conundrum of patients ranging from the most common to the rarest of presentations in all age groups. Part of her training also included postings in the primary health care centres in rural areas and conducting health awareness talks and campaigns.
After completing internship in AIIMS, she subsequently moved to Singapore as a Medical Officer and rotated through all the internal medicine subspecialties such as Cardiology, Respiratory Medicine, Critical Care, Gastroenterology, Dermatology, Geriatric Medicine and Neurology. After 3 years of rotation, she became registered as a Member of the Royal College of Physicians (UK).

 

Her special interest includes but not limited to both ends of age spectrum, the geriatrics and the paediatrics. Her stint as a Geriatric Medicine Senior Resident gave her exposure to this particular group, which forms a large portion of Singapore’s population. And being a mother of 2, paediatric care is close to her heart. That being said, Dr Deepa is very passionate about holistic patient management and holds the motto “prevention is better than cure” strongly.

Her warm and empathetic nature makes her a very easy person for patients to interact with.

Dr Deepa Omprakash is currently practising at our Robertson Walk Clinic
