State of the Faculty Address 2021

18 HKUMed Ascends to Record High in 2022 THE World University Rankings by Subject in Clinical and Health Building dreams, realising possibilities Finally, please allow me the opportunity to give thanks. HKUMed has for the first time in our 135-year history been recognised as one of the top 20 medical schools in the world, according to the latest authoritative Times Higher Education ranking. This would not have been possible without the collective dedication and hard work of our students, alumni, faculty colleagues, researchers, teachers, professional and administrative staff, and indeed all those who have come before us. Your alma mater owes each and every one of you a heartfelt “thank you”. Today’s HKUMed has been able to aim a little higher and reached a little further because we stand on the shoulders of giants who have blazed the way – from Sun Yat-sen to the latest laureates of “China’s Nobel” the Future Science Prize.
