MBBS

Short Description

The MBBS curriculum is not only about training doctors but also personal development and fulfilment. Our programme provides you with ample opportunities for personal growth that will carry you well into your later years when you will serve and excel as responsible citizens, colleagues, teachers and friends within our profession and community.

Problem-based, small-group tutorials require every student to participate and be active in managing their learning, and to question both what and how they learn. These tutorials are also effective for developing your interpersonal communication and teamwork skills.

Ethical principles and humanitarian values are absolutely essential to training doctors. You will learn how these principles and values underpin health care practice, as well as your professional and legal obligations, through the medical ethics and medical humanities programmes.

Alongside learning that takes place within hospitals, students will gain first-hand experience in a wide variety of community-based settings that involve family physicians, maternal and child health services, hospices and patient support groups. They will gain a holistic perspective on patient management and understand the importance of effective use of health care resources and effective integration between primary and secondary care.

Inter-professional education is an emerging and progressive area in modern health care. The Faculty has also taken the lead to introduce an inter-professional pathway so that medical, nursing, pharmacy students can have the opportunities to interact and to work with each other – much like the real-life situation after your graduation. For students with demonstrated academic potential and a genuine interest in developing inter-professional knowledge, skills, competence and expertise, the Faculty will offer them the opportunity to enroll in intercalated programmes, e.g. Master of Public Health, with the support of scholarships.

Calculation of scores for applicants with more than 1 sitting in HKDSE Examination

In general, most of the programmes offered by HKU consider the best results achieved by candidates in different combination of sittings, except for a few programmes which only consider the latest results.  Few programmes may also impose a penalty on HKDSE repeaters.  The policy on the calculation of scores in combined sittings of HKDSE for the 2022-23 exercise will be finalized at a later stage, which will be posted on our website https://www.hku.hk/dse.
