Medicine (MBChB) Programme 內外全科醫學士課程

MBChB

Short Description

The 6-year full-time programme adopts a unique SMART medical curriculum, allowing us to nurture competent and compassionate doctors who are amply qualified both to meet the challenges of modern-day health care and to serve the community with clinical excellence and passion.

The SMART curriculum:

  • Student-centred
  • Mentorship-based
  • Assured knowledge acquisition
  • Robust clinical teaching
  • Teaching ethics and professionalism

Students admitted on the basis of the HKDSE or a recognised HKDSE-equivalent qualification are required to complete six years of study to qualify for the degrees of Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB). Students with an outstanding academic performance are also given the option to enter Year 2 directly. This 5-year medicine programme is a comprehensive and standalone programme and exemptions from the University Core Requirements and faculty packages are granted to outstanding students.

After the successful completion of a one-year internship in an approved hospital in Hong Kong, graduates become registered medical practitioners.
