Obstetrics and Gynaecology
The science of human life, Obstetrics & Gynaecology (O&G) focuses on two fundamental life journeys: from fertilisation to childbirth and from childhood to menopause. Dedicated to fetal and women’s wellbeing, we conduct innovative research to uncover new knowledge, design novel treatments and transform our insights into transformational medical solutions to help women live healthier lives. We are the only centre in Hong Kong accredited by both Royal College and Hong Kong College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists for training in O&G as well as all subspecialties.
Our PhD programme in O&G will equip you with advanced scientific training in research design, methodology, data analysis and result interpretation with a focus on advanced clinical and laboratory technologies to propel your career. Dedicated to pushing the frontiers of knowledge in O&G, you should be ready to engage into ground-breaking clinical, scientific and translational research in areas like Reproductive Medicine, Maternal Medicine, Fetal Medicine, Perinatal Medicine, Gynaecological Endoscopy, Gynaecological Oncology, Urogynaecology, and Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology.
Each year, we publish several ground-breaking and frequently cited papers in major high-impact journals in O&G and basic science, including New English Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, Lancet, Nature Medicine, Nature Communications, Human Reproduction Update, Human Reproduction, Fertility & Sterility, American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, British Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Diabetes Care. We also obtain many local, national and international grants from prestigious bodies like NIH, AoE, CRF, GRF, HMRF, ITF and NSFC.
