The organisational framework of the HKU Health System will evolve with the times. The current set-up is as below:
Being a medical school, the twinned mission of education and innovation must remain at our core. The Faculty will continue to remain intently focused on our core mission and our attention is trained on good clinical governance of the institutions with which we partner. We also engage in direct service provision, in order to expand our patient base thereby providing opportunities for high quality clinical research in a wider spectrum of diseases and clinical conditions.
In addition to western allopathic inpatient facilities, HKU Health System plans to sharpen its expertise in integrative medicine through standardization of best clinical governance practice and more robust risk management with respect to the Chinese Medicine outpatient clinics for which our School of Chinese Medicine is responsible. Under the Associate Dean (Clinical Affairs) portfolio, we have successfully recruited our first Clinical Director (under the appointment as Clinical Professor of Practice) and a small but critical team of health care management specialists who will be steering the establishment of HKU Health System.
