Your MBBS is a registrable primary qualification that enables you to apply for registration with the Medical Council of Hong Kong to practise medicine in the region. To obtain full registration, graduates are required to successfully complete a 3-week Enhanced Preinternship Block followed by a 1-year internship in an accredited hospital. The internship will take you through selected rotations in different specialties and will require you to practise clinically under the supervision of experienced doctors. Completion of this basic training will open the door to a multitude of career options in the medical profession. If you want to become a specialist, you are then required to undergo more years of postgraduate training and further examinations. Postgraduate and specialist training is administered through the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine and its constituent colleges. HKUMed graduates are a heterogeneous group of doctors, many of whom are now in leading positions in a variety of fields, not just medicine. Some serve the community as frontline doctors in the public and private sectors, while others have pursued academic careers in Hong Kong or overseas, contributing to the development of the next generations of doctors and advancement of medical treatment. Many of our graduates have become world-renowned clinical experts and scientists.
