The Bau Institute of Medical and Health Sciences Education (BIMHSE) was established in 2004 as a specialized centre to provide infrastructure to foster excellence in medical and health sciences education within the Faculty and beyond, thereby enhancing its profile in the global medical and healthcare education community. Developed out of the former Medical Education Unit, BIMHSE has the mission to promote excellence, professionalism, innovation and collaboration (EPIC) in medical and health sciences education. Since its inauguration, IMHSE has been providing support for the development of teaching and learning within the Faculty while at the same time maintains close collaboration with different partners overseas to facilitate academic exchanges.
A restructuring was initiated by BIMHSE in January 2012 to setits strategic directions and scopes of work as listed below:

BIMHSE will continue to uphold its mission to strive for the provision of quality education and serve as a home base to provide support and expertise to different aspects of education. Further information can be found in its website:https://www.bimhse.hku.hk/home/.
