Final year students from Boston University School of Medicine
We are delighted to bring you news of two students from Boston University School of Medicine who spent a month with us at The Chinese University of Hong Kong for their final year elective. Students Maya Kailas and Hyunjee Kwak chose our Faculty based on the positive feedback from BU students who attached with us last year.
Since radiology is not part of their core curriculum, they decided to attach to our Department of Imaging and Interventional Radiology in order to get more exposure. By spending time with our local students and academics, they learnt more about our healthcare and educational system, which is based on the British model and somewhat different than what they are familiar with back home. Also, they got to witness clinical cases that are common in Asia but considered rare in the States.
As one of the youngest institutions to be ranked among the world's top medical schools, the Faculty of Medicine at The Chinese University of Hong Kong is reputable for being innovative and forward-thinking, having nurtured cohorts of new-generation healthcare professionals who have gained national and international recognition.
