Awardee of the My Life in Medicine Award

Maggie LAM

It is my greatest honour to be one of the recipients of the My Life in Medicine Award.

Carrying forward the spirit bestowed in the Award of developing a genuine love for learning and pursuing excellence, this Award has encouraged me to explore the field of medicine in more ways than one.

In the past year, I have participated in community outreach service programmes in addition to joining Advocate, a student-led platform aiming to share medical advancements with the public. In the summer of 2018, I also joined the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine at the University of Oxford for an eight-week internship, where I experienced the life of a researcher.

None of these would have been possible without the Faculty of Medicine, which provided me with unimaginably valuable opportunities, especially to go abroad for a research attachment, and my supportive GPS mentor, who inspired me to go beyond my comfort zone and explore diverse fields of medicine. I am truly looking forward to the rest of my medical training and, together with my comrades, making a difference in the community as competent and compassionate medical professionals.
