Following the overwhelming response for ‘Doctor for a Day’ Programme, Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital now extends the make-believe experience beyond its wards, with the launch of ‘Doctor for a Day’ App, available for download on iOS and Android tablets.
Recommended for children aged 4 to 8, ‘Doctor for a Day’ App is filled with many learning opportunities along with brain teasers that will stimulate a child’s mind and rouse their curiosity about the medical profession. This is Singapore’s first-of-its-kind free edutainment application designed by a healthcare provider for kids. Parents can rest assure that the application will not expose their children to any in-app purchases or pop-up advertisements.
KEY FEATURES OF THE APPLICATION
1. PRETEND TO BE A LITTLE DOCTOR – Look your best and start off the game by customising the virtual doctor avatar. Let your child’s creativity flow as they mix-and-match hairstyles and cute accessories. Unlock achievements to earn collectible toy medical instruments.
2. EXPLORE THE OPERATING THEATRES – As a start, two different operations await the doctor’s attention. But first, wash and scrub those hands clean! Practice good personal hygiene by washing one’s hands regularly – also a prerequisite before a surgery. Step-by-step, each operation takes your child through basic surgical techniques. Inject, incise, and then remove the awful little tumors using a forcep before stitching the wound. Improve those surgical skills as more challenging operations will be coming up!
3. LEARN THE HUMAN ANATOMY – Stimulate your child’s visual memory with this memory game where they also learn about different human body parts. Not only is your child tasked to remember where the matching images are, they also have to race against time to complete the challenge. There are varying levels of difficulty for children of different ages.
EXCHANGE FOR DOCTOR TOYS & WIN GOLDEN TICKETS TO DOCTOR FOR A DAY!
