Life at HKUMed


Medical education has been at the heart of The University of Hong Kong's history since our inception and the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine has been a leader in medical education and research throughout our 130+ years of history. We are proud to continue our tradition of pioneering achievement from our campus on Sassoon Road. We have trained thousands of healthcare practitioners and scientists, as well as many internationally renowned researchers and policy-makers. Today we look forward to nurturing the next generation of healthcare professionals and leaders.
Our campus on Sassoon Road is home to a vibrant and talented student body. Here, students are provided with a myriad of opportunities to develop their medical knowledge and skills, as well as their wider extracurricular interests.

We strongly believe that this well-rounded experience is essential to both the personal and professional development of our students. At HKUMed there are many support systems in place - financial, facilities, advice and networks - to help students join various local and overseas learning programmes, including clinical attachments, exchanges, service trips and study tours, in addition to Enrichment Year. Many scholarships are available at HKUMed.
