These achievements have been built on a legacy of vision and hard work by our predecessors and current members to provide a worldclass education and produce research of regional and global importance. Over the last three decades alone, we have achieved major research milestones, such as our contributions on SARS and COVID-19; reformed the curriculum; established closer ties with the Greater Bay Area (GBA), including operating the HKUShenzhen Hospital; and expanded our people numbers, including doubling undergraduate enrolment, nearly tripling research student and postdoctoral fellow numbers, and increasing staffing by nearly 75%. The outlook is even brighter as we are expanding our footprint in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, recruiting more staff to meet society’s growing demand for health innovations and trained professionals, and expanding our research programmes. ‘None of this would 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 came before us,’ said the Dean, Professor Gabriel Leung. in HK 香港 1st in Asia 亞洲 3rd scholars from HKUMed was listed the world’s most highly cited researchers by Clarivate Analytics 位港大醫學院學者獲科睿唯安選為 「2021年度最廣獲徵引研究人員」 17 increase in terms of staffing 教職員編制增長 75%+ 20th Worldwide 全球 Source: THE World University Rankings 2022 HKUMed’s Ranking by Subject in Clinical and Health 3 HKUMed News Winter 2021
