The University, in collaboration with National Health Commission, will organize this programme scheduled for July 21 - 30, 2018.
Students from HKU and PUMC will spend 3 days in Beijing first to understand Mainland medical and healthcare system by visiting PUMC and its affiliate hospitals and laboratories. PUMC is widely considered to be the best medical school in China. City sightseeing and culture immersion programmes will also be arranged in Beijing. Later, the students will spend 7 days in Yonghe County to provide basic health check/ screenings and health promotion education to elderly residents, patients and left-behind children in the impoverished areas, with a view to enhance their awareness of the importance of public health and the quality of life. The students will also conduct field study and research projects with the focus on local residents’ healthcare status.
At its heart, medicine is a service profession, and the proposed poverty alleviation programme will contribute tremendously to instilling the essential qualities of altruism, service and humility in students. Service/ humanitarian work is an integral option within the Faculty of Medicine for students during their course of learning, and will have the most lasting impact on their personal and professional development, and hopefully on the people they will encounter.

Participants should guarantee full participation in the Programme, and are required to submit the following documents to Faculty of Medicine within one month after the completion of the programme:
