|Our clinical training begins in the early years. Students acquire clinical competence through a well-designed programme consisting of simulation training, bedside teaching, clinical attachment in centres of excellence, and an advanced pre-internship course.|
|Intensive clinical exposure
Our students have perhaps the longest and broadest clinical exposure anywhere in the world. This ensures they are well exposed to all possible cases prevalent in Hong Kong, regardless of specialty. Our orthopaedics programme, for example, is the most exhaustive in the world - with seven weeks of exposure to musculoskeletal problems to provide our students with the training needed to meet one of the major problems of our aging population, notably osteoporosis.
|Access to medical records
CU Medicine was the first medical school to provide students with access to computerised patient medical records. This access to CMS records gives real, insightful and in-depth exposure to patients' clinical problems.
Almost all our students do an overseas elective in their penultimate year. This option is actively supported by our Faculty, who make use of a vibrant network of partner institutions across the world to find placements for students.
|In CU Medicine you can find the best medical teachers, including Professor KUMTA Shekhar Madhukar, who is the only medical teacher in Hong Kong to have received the UGC Teaching Award.|
|Staff with a passion for teaching
Students of CU Medicine have noted that our teachers bring an unbridled sense of enthusiasm to their work. Many local and international awards have been won by our teaching staff, including Professor KUMTA Shekhar Madhukar, who is the only medical teacher in Hong Kong to have received the UGC Teaching Award.
