The curriculum is forward looking with a strong scientific base. Clinical education and university-based education are integrated, using the latest teaching and learning resources.
The Department aims to train students with global perspectives, and actively encourages students to seize opportunities to experience life overseas. The Department fully supports the principle of student exchange for clinical placements with overseas institutes.
