Our teachers do much more than simply transfer knowledge. They have the interests of their students at heart, see the potential in each, and have the passion and ability to bring out their best.

A supportive learning environment

A supportive learning environment

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 breeds success

Mentorship breeds success

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.


Beyond the classroom

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.


Medical students organised health exhibitions in different communities to raise public awareness about health information.
