我們的熱情

 

隨著沙士、中東呼吸綜合症、埃博拉病毒和最近出現的COVID-19的出現,所有致力於公共衞生範疇工作的人們在為政府提供公共衞生措施和公共教育的建議方面發揮著重要作用,有助減輕傳染病在本土和全球傳播的風險。作為公共衞生教育的先驅,賽馬會公共衞生及基層醫療學院於2009年編訂了香港首個公共衞生本科課程,公共衞生理學士課程。

 

課程

 

除了傳染病以外,還有一系列公共衞生問題威脅著我們的健康和醫療系統的能力,包括氣候變化、慢性病的流行、人口老化,職業安全、濫用藥物、網絡成癮、心理健康、不健康的生活模式,以及醫療融資和醫療服務的可持續性等。本課程為對公共衞生感興趣的學生在人口健康議題上帶來寶貴的見識同時燃起學生的熱情。學生可以掌握下列各方面的知識、技能和價值概念:影響健康的社會因素、環境對健康的影響、健康生活模式、公共衞生法律與道德、生物統計學及流行病學基礎、危急預防及難應變、傳染病學和醫療服務改革等。

張文軒

一年級學生 (2018–19年度)

今年暑假我參加了由學院安排的台灣實地考察。在參觀當地的醫院和 療養院及在跟當地的學生和教授們進行知識交流的過程中,我能夠了 解台灣在舒緩治療、長期照護和國民健康保險等各方面的發展成果, 當中都有值得香港借鑑之處。 此外,我還報讀了英國劍橋大學修讀短期課程。在劍橋的兩個月不但 加深了我對神經科學等一些以前不太熟悉的領域知識,同時更促進了 我的個人發展,和培養了公共衞生專才應該具備的全球視野。

CHEUNG Man Hin

Year 1 Student (in 2018-19) (JUPAS)

The multidisciplinary nature of public health has allowed me to put my wide spectrum of interests into meaningful use of improving the health of greater society, through varying scopes from disease prevention to health policies implementation. 

 

In acquisition of a global outlook, the School offered us opportunities to take a closer look on the prevailing public health issues around the world. As a participant of the recent Taiwan field study, our knowledge exchange with local students and professors from the top medical universities and the site visits to hospitals and hospices were very rewarding. These interactive experiences not only enabled us to comprehensively examine the leading progress of Taiwan in palliative care, long term care, National Health Insurance and more, but to also drew worthy lessons for Hong Kong and other localities to learn from. Grasping the precious time of summer, I also attended an intensive programme at Cambridge University, which broadened my understanding towards some less familiar domains like neuroscience, and invigorated my aspiration to become a top-notch healthcare professional.

 

All these bits and pieces composed my fruitful university life, and necessarily polished my holistic thinking and international mindedness, for which an outstanding public health professional should embody.

Year 2 student (2018-19) (Non-JUPAS)

Public health emphasises on health protection and disease prevention. This programme not just introduces us with some basic biomedical knowledge and public health theories and tools on health promotion, but also provides us experiential learning. In induction programmes, seminars and site visits to different public health service providers are provided for students to let me to explore the public health related careers and practices in year 1 and 2. In the summer holiday of year 2, each student is offered with an internship opportunity so that students can apply what they have learnt into practice.

 

I had internship at Community Drug Advisory Council (CDAC) last summer. I was responsible for supporting delivery of anti-drug programme in community and schools, designing anti-drug worksheet for secondary school students, searching information for website update and assisting in programme evaluation. During the conduction of street booth, I delivered anti-drug leaflets and carried out health education towards general public and ethnic minority. Also, I learnt some health message delivery skills when observing the health education talks for primary students.

 

Having internship in CDAC was a valuable learning opportunity to observe how a non-government organisation works, learn how a program is prepared, conducted and evaluated, and interact and collaborate with other professionals. This internship provided me with a deeper understanding about the careers related to public health education and promotion.

LEE Hoi Ling

Year 3 Student (2018-19) (Non-JUPAS))

Public health is a broad discipline which allows us to explore various fields based on my interests. Public health study does not only nurture global and local perspectives on health issues, but it also promotes self-development.

I joined in the Xian environmental field trip this summer. Apart from learning about current pollution problems and corresponding strategies in China, we also visited the landfill and sludge treatment plants to explore local management skills and the latest technologies. I also facilitated games in the Fun Science Carnival to promote public awareness of the importance of appropriate use of antibiotics and the concept of antibiotics resistance. These experiences enriched my U life and equipped me for my future career all at the same time.

LAI Hin Ting Hindy

Year 4 student (2018-19) (Non-JUPAS)

From the global re-emergence of measles to the recent local outbreak of dengue fever, the importance of public health has been emphasised repeatedly. This programme inquires into a comprehensive spectrum of specialties within the field and is further exemplified by its final year research project and practicum, allowing students to apply taught skills and explore public health careers.

 

Last term, I had the opportunity to go on an exchange at the University of Toronto, where they offered a wide range of health science courses on par with the curriculum. Their academic culture strongly encouraged active in-class activities and discussions. I was able to enjoy some one-of-a-kind learning experiences in elective courses and workshops.

 

As the city takes pride in its cultural diversity, the university is no exception. I was highly engaged in a multicultural learning and living environment. It was an enriching experience that I had developed confidence in expressing my cultural identity, and reflected such perspective while debating on international and social issues with students of other ethnic backgrounds.

 

I was sincerely honoured to receive the Reaching Out Awards offered by the HKSAR Government Scholarship Fund, which has acknowledged my endeavours and inspired more students like me to explore outside of Hong Kong.
