Students are an integral part of our team. More than most, our teachers are known for developing a friendly, yet professional, collegiate spirit. They believe that a warm and nurturing environment encourages a unique sense of belonging both to the University and the larger community of medicine.
The bonds that are created carry over into their professional careers. When students ultimately become a part of our alumni network, they contribute to the rich fraternity and camaraderie that has become a hallmark of CUHK Medicine.
Mentorship at CUHK Medicine extends across the entire curriculum. Each student becomes part of a small group of student mentees from all years of our medicine programme. Their mentors are drawn from the ranks of our enthusiastic and experienced staff, who meet their mentees on a regular basis, both formally and informally.
We encourage our students to express their creative potential outside the classroom. MED-EGG and the student-led Medical Exhibition have become regular features of CUHK Medicine and give our students a powerful sense of identity as future doctors. The humanitarian spirit of our students is also evident in the numerous public-health and disaster relief efforts in which they have participated - including the Sichuan Earthquake and Stand Tall Project - alongside their teachers and colleagues.
