Dr Devinder Singh is the Medical Director of Cadence Heart Centre. He is an experienced Senior Consultant Cardiologist & Cardiac Electrophysiologist.
Dr Devinder Singh has been in public service for more than two decades. Before his private practice, he served as a Senior Consultant in the Department of Cardiology at the National University Heart Centre Singapore (NUHCS) and Visiting Consultant at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital Singapore. He was also the Director of Cardiac Informatics at National University Hospital (NUH) and holds the position of Assistant Professor at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS).
Dr Singh’s speciality lies in diagnosing and treating a wide range of cardiovascular conditions. His expertise lies in managing heart rhythm disorders and has extensive experience in treating complex cardiac arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.
He is adept at using advanced technology to evaluate and manage complex heart rhythm disorders — from performing cardiac electrophysiology studies and cardiac catheter ablation, to treating complex congenital heart disease and performing cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
While working at NUHCS, Dr Singh provided care for outpatient and inpatient cardiology patients, performing cardiac electrophysiology procedures and implanting cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED), such as pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT). He was also part of the core group of cardiologists who looked after critically ill patients in the intensive care or coronary care unit. Dr Devinder Singh is accredited and was part of a select group of Cardiologists performing invasive pericardiocentesis for patients requiring urgent pericardiocentesis (drainage of pericardial effusion).
As Director of cardiac informatics, Dr Singh was instrumental in driving key technological innovation in the department of cardiology at NUH. He led the electronic ECG project in NUH, which replaced the manual process of ordering and reporting ECGs. The project won the prestigious Excellence Award at the annual Hospital Management Asia Award 2014 competitions.
Dr Devinder Singh was also appointed as the lead in Value-Driven Outcome (VDO) projection for patients with myocardial infarction, a quality improvement project that led to huge improvements in the care of patients with heart attacks. He is also the key lead from cardiology in the implementation of the Next Generation Electronic Medical Record (NGEMR) system, being a subject matter expert and certified trainer in EPIC.

Thereafter, Dr Devinder Singh completed advanced specialist training in Cardiology, subspecialising in Cardiac Electrophysiology at NUHCS, Singapore. Dr Singh was awarded the Academic Medicine Development Award and completed his advanced fellowship training in cardiac electrophysiology at Duke University Medical and Research Centre, Durham, North Carolina, one of the leading centres in cardiac electrophysiology in the USA.
During his tenure, he trained in advanced cardiac electrophysiology under the pioneers in the field and completed his fellowship in cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) — making him the only cardiologist in Singapore who is trained in both cardiac electrophysiology and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
Beyond his clinical work, Dr Singh serves as an Assistant Professor at the Yong Yoo Lin School of Medicine, NUS, and is actively involved in the education and training of undergraduate and postgraduate medical students. His passion for medical education led him to be a core member in training cardiology residents under the ACGME programme and has mentored many cardiology trainees. He is also an examiner in the final year MBBS examination for graduate medical students held by NUS.
Dr Singh has been involved in the training of cardiac electrophysiology fellows at NUHCS from Singapore and abroad and has been invited as a key faculty speaker and opinion leader in several cardiology conferences. Additionally, he is involved in clinical research and has published widely in peer-reviewed journals.
Dr Devinder Singh is also very actively involved in various media platforms to educate the general public on heart health, cardiac conditions and the various treatments available.
He has been invited on television shows such as Channel 5’s Let’s Talk About Health and Colors TV Asia-Pacific’s Salaam Namaste to talk about heart-related conditions.
