HKUMed UG Prospectus 2022

The Cradle of Healthcare Professionals HKUMed is this year celebrating its 135th anniversary, making it the oldest institution of higher education in Hong Kong. We have a strong reputation as a pioneer in medical education, training and research, while proudly serving as a bastion of morality, vision and care. The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic have highlighted how crucial medical education is to society. From providing care to patients, to leading crucial research that has driven policy decisions, we are honoured to serve the global community. In the face of these challenges, we have achieved a historically high ranking for “clinical and health” subjects in the 2022 Times Higher Education World University Rankings and are continuing to uphold professionalism and clinical teaching excellence. The Faculty now ranks in 20th position globally and 3rd in Asia for this category. We are proud to continue our tradition of spearheading 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. Each year, we admit almost 640 students across seven programmes, which include MBBS, BNurs, BChinMed, BPharm, BBiomedSc, BASc(GHD) and BSc(Bioinformatics), and our student body is one of the largest for a single Faculty, totalling more than 4,850 people. 2
