Ancient Cures for a Modern World
The SARS outbreak in 2003 has changed Hong Kong in more ways than one. It has also affected the academic trajectory of the then nine-year-old Iris Lau. ‘Since then it has become my dream to devote myself in the medical field to serve the community. Meanwhile, I began to take a real interest in the holistic and preventive treatment approach of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Thus, I have long since set my sights on the Bachelor of Chinese Medicine programme at CUHK in order to pursue a lifelong career as a Chinese Medicine practitioner, taking care of the physical, mental and spiritual health of the needy regardless of their socioeconomic backgrounds.’
There is a reason why the CUHK Chinese Medicine programme would catch the Iris’s eye: established in 1999, the programme has always ranked top among the local Chinese medicine programmes. Its high repute is built on an extensive programme design and a good career outlook. ‘The programme nurtures high quality Chinese Medicine graduates, who possess solid Traditional Chinese Medicine skills as well as comprehensive knowledge in modern medicine. Graduates are qualified to take the CMP licensing examination and become a registered Chinese Medicine Practitioner in Hong Kong,’ said Prof. Leung Ting-hung, Director of the School of Chinese Medicine.
