Professor Simon NG |  Director, Global Physician-Leadership Stream

As the first undergraduate medical leadership programme in Asia, GPS is designed to develop students into future leaders in the medical and healthcare profession in Hong Kong and the international community. It goes beyond professional training in medical knowledge, skills and attitudes and aims to fulfil their aspirations to pursue a clinical or academic career or serve in the public, private or humanitarian sectors. For the GPS programme, we seek well-rounded applicants with high scholastic potential and an international perspective, who are technically competent, adept at solving problems, and capable of demonstrating a strong sense of responsibility, ethical behaviour, patience and compassion. Most importantly, they should be committed to preserving the health of the community and possess a passion for lifelong learning and inquiry. We will look ahead and build on our reputation for innovation, discovery and excellence so we may continue to contribute to the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities.
