Organiser

On behalf of the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine of The University of Hong Kong, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Frontiers in Medical and Health Sciences Education 2020. The theme of this year’s conference is “Medical Education Disrupted; Negativity or Creativity”.

 

Many facets of our world including education and health care are facing the impact of disruptive innovations, practices and global events.  While this can be met with negative sentiments towards the need for constant change and adaptation, it also presents unprecedented opportunities for educators to be daring and creative in future readying our graduates to thrive in this rapidly changing world.  We have assembled a diverse range of world class speakers who will delve into issues such as what is disruption, what disruptive practices are happening now in health care and health sciences education, what if certain disruptive influences can be incorporated into existing frameworks and what is next on the horizon?  Experts will also raise ideas of how to manage students and colleagues in this challenging environment.

 

In addition to eye opening plenary sessions and provocative panel discussions, this 2-day conference will aim to introduce elements to the conference that are more disruptive in nature.  We will use interactive applications and social media to maximise delegate participation and engagement, online learning management systems for peri-conference idea exchanges, while providing ample opportunities for delegates to connect and network in a welcoming environment. We therefore warmly extend our invitation to you to join us in Hong Kong for this memorable and enriching experience.

The Bau Institute of Medical and Health Sciences Education (BIMHSE)

 

The Institute of Medical and Health Sciences Education (IMHSE) was established in the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong in 2004 with the goal of promoting excellence, professionalism, innovation and collaboration in medical and health sciences education.  In 2015, IMHSE was named after Bau in recognition of a generous donation from the estate of the late Mr Bau Man Kwong Maurice to support medical and health sciences education at the University.

More

Over the years, the Faculty has developed coherent organizational structures for curriculum management, assessment and quality assurance, and has made substantial efforts to promote staff development and scholarship in medical and health sciences education. Experience acquired over the years has given the Faculty impetus to increase its scope and capacity for further development to give the Faculty a more prominent profile and facilitate its strategic objective of becoming a regional and global leader in medical and health sciences education.

 

BIMHSE now provides a collaborative platform to foster excellence in medical and health sciences education within the Faculty and beyond, thereby advancing its position in the region and in the international arena. The Institute has more recently revamped its functions into the following three core programs:

  • Pedagogy and Training
  • Research and Scholarship
  • Innovation and Collaboration

BIMHSE aims to bring out the best not only in our students but also in our teachers themselves. The Institute epitomizes the commitment of the Faculty to strive for excellence in medical and health sciences education and to fulfill its mission as a medical school to nurture the best people for the benefit of all.
