Teaching is conducted by more than 400 full-time, highly-qualified teaching staff who come from our 14 departments and 4 schools, alongside about 3,000 honorary teachers, most of whom are doctors and medical professionals in public hospitals or private practitioners. The excellence of the education we provide can be seen in our graduates, who have gone on to be leaders in their fields, in Hong Kong and the world.
