The Apollonian Interview : Dr. C.H. Chu

March 16, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

Lately I’ve been working with the editorial board of my faculty’s (Faculty of Dentistry) official journal, The Apollonian.

One of our chief tasks is to interview senior figures in the field of dentistry, mainly our professors and tutors, and our seniors who are now private practitioners. One good aspect of joining a faculty editorial board is that it’s a great opportunity to meet professionals in the field and to learn not just about the field, but also about how our seniors have progressed from mere university students to specialists in their respective fields.

Interview with Dr. CH Chu, Clinical Associate Professor in Community and Family Dentistry, Faculty of Dentistry, The University of Hong Kong.

Yesterday my team and I interviewed Dr. C.H. Chu, one of the friendliest and one of the most inspiring educators (in my opinion) in Prince Philip Dental Hospital, HKU’s dentistry campus.

Dr CH Chu, detailing his student life as he recommends ways to succeed in dentistry and in life.

In the interview we covered various topics ranging from advancements in dental education, changes in the faculty over the past 30 years, to the more personal aspects of being a dentist such as morality and ethics in dentistry, the importance of having a purpose in life, and much more.

If you are interested in reading more about the interview, or if you’d like to learn more about dentistry at HKU, come visit our faculty at Hospital Rd, Sai Ying Pun, and get yourself a copy of The Apollonian 2012 when it is released!
