MBBS

Short Description

The goal of the MBBS curriculum is to produce doctors who are competent in the understanding and delivery of effective, humane and ethical medical care, committed to lifelong learning, and ready to proceed to postgraduate training.

The MBBS curriculum lasts for 12 semesters spreading over six years and is designed to emphasise and integrate four key themes:

  • Human Biology in Health and Disease
  • Professional Skills: Diagnostic, Problem Solving, Effective Communication and Clinical Management
  • Population Health, Health Services, Economics and Policy
  • Medical Ethics, Professional Attitudes and Behaviour

The whole third year of the MBBS curriculum is a personalized Enrichment Year which aims at enhancing and enriching students’ total learning experience and whole person development.  Students are given greater space and latitude to plan and self-initiate their own learning experiences within or beyond Hong Kong.  They can spend up to a year for research attachment, overseas exchange, humanitarian work, community service projects, and/or intercalation/articulation/elective programmes.

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 2019-20 exercise will be finalized at a later stage, which will be posted on our website https://www.hku.hk/dse.
