HKUMed is this year celebrating its 135th anniversary, making it the oldest institution of higher education in Hong Kong. We have a long reputation as a pioneer in medical education, training and research, while proudly upholding a reputation for morality, vision and care.
The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic have highlighted how crucial medical education is to society. From providing care to patients, to leading crucial research that drove policy decisions, we are honoured to serve the global community.
In the face of these challenges, we have achieved a historically high ranking for “clinical and health” subjects in the 2022 Times Higher Education World University Rankings. The Faculty now ranks in 20th position globally and 3rd in Asia for this category.
We are proud to continue our tradition of spearheading achievement from our campus on Sassoon Road. We have trained thousands of healthcare practitioners and scientists, as well as many internationally renowned researchers and policy-makers.
Each year, we admit almost 600 students across seven programmes and our student body is one of the largest for a single Faculty, totalling more than 4,800 people.
“There has never been a better time to pursue a career in the health professions – and to start your journey at HKUMed. COVID-19 has put the spotlight on the importance of health to every aspect of our lives and increased demand for health-care professionals.”
