The Eugene Goh Award

The Eugene Goh Award is awarded to the top abstract at APICS. The Eugene Goh Award was founded and sponsored by Dr Eugene Goh’s friends and colleagues since 2017.

Dr Goh graduated from the National University of Singapore, Faculty of Medicine (Class of 1997). He qualified as an anesthesiologist and further completed sub-specialty training in intensive care medicine at Mayo Clinic, United States of America. He was deeply committed to improving care of patients in the National University Hospital of Singapore where he served as Director of the Surgical Intensive Care Unit.

Dr Goh was an affable person, and well known for his extensive knowledge, strategic thinking, technical skills, and willingness to help others. He was in the top 1% of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) and consistently received the highest praise by his patients, supervisors, and peers. He lived life to the fullest – he was a sportsman, loved traveling, motorsport, and gastronomy. He passed away on 8 September 2012.

In memory of his passion for intensive care medicine, the Eugene Goh Award for best abstract was set up to stimulate research and advancement in this field.
