中大醫學院就2022-23財政預算案的回應 (Chinese Version Only)

中大醫學院歡迎2022-23財政預算案中提出多項支持醫療教育、科研、醫療專材延攬及培訓的措施,相信有關措施對提升本地醫療及創科水平、建設香港成為生命健康的研發樞紐至為重要。

 

面對香港醫療人手持續不足,培訓高水平的醫護人手實在刻不容緩。因應醫科學額的增加及日益增長的教研需求,中大醫學院正在多方面全力配合。硬件上,我們正進行多項「醫療教育設施提升工程」,包括翻新李卓敏基本醫學大樓、在大埔第39區興建教學科研綜合大樓、及於威爾斯親王醫院附近興建多用途教學大樓及附屬學生住宿設施。財政預算案中增撥一百億元支持本地大學的醫療教學設施提升工程,將大大幫助我們及時開展及推進相關工程,為醫療教學及研究提供所需的空間及設施。

 

軟件上,我們正努力延攬國際醫學科研人才來港,一方面希望他們能為本地提供國際級的醫學教育,並同時給予學生更多元化的教導,擴闊他們的視野。目前中大醫學院教授成立了四所研究中心,進駐InnoHK創新香港研發平台,研究範疇涵蓋腸道微生物群、創新診斷科技、神經肌肉骨骼再生醫學及醫療機械人等,並正與全球多間知名學府合作進行多個重點科研項目。財政預算案中多項推動「生命健康」科研的建議,包括設立「InnoLife Healthtech Hub生命健康創新科研中心」、增加「創新及科技基金」的資助及撥款、便利專才交流,及支援初創企業及科技投資協助進一步把研發成果落地等,均有助匯聚全球頂尖研究團隊及人才,為本地創造十分有利的科研條件。

 

中大醫學院院長陳家亮教授表示:「刻下香港正處於抗疫的嚴峻及艱難時刻,正正揭示了我們如何迫切地需要增加醫護人才的培訓、維持高水平的醫療服務、及進行國際級的醫學科研,以應對未來香港的醫療系統將面對的挑戰及需要。中大醫學院歡迎2022-23財政預算案中提出多項支持醫學教研及創科的建議,認為可全面地回應不同需要,期望有關措施能早日落實,以及早開展及推進多項香港醫療體系刻不容緩的項目。」
