Vision and Mission
  • To foster and cultivate among medical students the virtues of the Hippocratic oath, its application in modern society, and its value in the professional satisfaction of a practitioner

  • To teach and train students in their attitudes and skills so that medical and dental students graduating from The University of Hong Kong are not only well trained professionals but are also gentle and caring doctors armed with sufficient skills to perform their tasks safely and with confidence.

  • To teach and train aspiring surgeons to attain a superior level of surgical practice.

  • To provide for and participate in continuing medical education for the medical profession in Hong Kong and the region.

In 1996, the Division of Education and Training, in addition to the clinical service Divisions, was established. The aim is to enhance surgical education, training of medical students, and continuing medical education to House Officers and doctors at every level of seniority. In 2000, it is further expanded into a Centre for Education & Training.

This new Centre is involved in the overall supervision of undergraduate teaching, course assessment and examinations. In course of time, postgraduate training, continuing medical education including courses, conferences and workshops will be handled by the Centre.

The Centre is also very much involved in the New Medical Curriculum which introduces radical innovations in teaching methods. In particular, the Centre is responsible for designing and implementing significant modifications to our current undergraduate surgical curriculum and student assessment processes. So far, success has been achieved in a number of areas.

Examples are:

  • Small group teaching, interactive Problem-Based Learning (PBL) sessions, successful introduction of Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), utilization of more network hospitals for teaching, etc.

  • Monitoring of teaching quality, recognition and encouragement of good students as well as good teachers have been implemented.
  • Both undergraduate and postgraduate education have been the priority of the Department.

The reasons for the successful achievement of teaching objectives include:

  • The Centre's commitment to implement educational objectives of the Department.
  • Planning, consultation with students and staff for curriculum, methods of teaching, monitoring of teaching quality and feed-back and good assessment methods
Future Plan

The Department plans to develop Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) by procuring necessary equipment and to set up a CAL laboratory. Members of the Department will continue to actively participate and contribute to the realization of the aims and objectives of the New Medical Curriculum. The Department will also attempt to recognize good teachers and send suitable staff to overseas centres to study new teaching methods for surgery.
