CUHK Medicine MBChB Programme (O&G)
The undergraduate training in O&G is scheduled to the 5th year of the 6-year curriculum. During the 5th year, medical students are divided into four major groups and rotate to the following four modules in turns: (1) O&G, (2) Psychiatry, (3) Paediatrics, and (4) Family and Community Medicine. Each group will spend a total of 9 weeks in each module.
In the O&G module, medical students will take 4 weeks in learning obstetrics and 4 weeks in gynaecology. The last week is for revision and examination. The main teaching venue is Prince of Wales Hospital, but medical students may have opportunity in attending other O&G units in Kwong Wah Hospital, Tuen Man Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital, United Christian Hospital, Queen Elisabeth Hospital, North District Hospital, Alice Ho Nethersole Hospital and Family Planning Association. Our department is dedicated to high-quality medical education. Our courses and teachers have been highly evaluated by the medical students in the past few years as shown in Figure 1 and Figure 2. In the past, several professors from our department had been awarded by our Faculty of Medicine ‘The Best Teacher of the Year’.
We are committed to nurturing medical students with the highest standards of professionalism and ethics.
In the annual White Coat Inauguration Ceremony, the medical freshmen, by witness of their parents, friends and teachers, are donned with white coats which signify embarkment on their medical journey.
They will also take the oath and commit to upholding the highest standards of being doctors to serve the patients and the community.
Teachers’ and Students’ Awards Presentation Ceremony is an important annual event in the Faculty of Medicine. Teachers of the Years Awards are presented to professors from each programme. It is an occasion when we come together to thank our dedicated teachers who have not only passed their knowledge on to students, but have also inspired them.
Our warmest congratulations go to the O&G teachers. We surely they will keep up their good work!
