International Teaching Scholarship
The International Teaching Scholarship – Chinese University of Hong Kong & University of Oxford Global MBChB programme is a scholarship for Oxford final year medical students to spend four weeks of their final year elective at the Prince of Wales Hospital, Hong Kong.
Initiated in 2013 and officially started in 2014-15, the programme has received very positive feedback over the years, attracting many top students to apply. Vincent Mok, Assistant Dean (Admission) and our key contact for the programme, has plans to expand the scale and content of this highly successful and popular award; and we trust in growing a long lasting bond between our two institutions.
As Visiting Teaching Scholars, awardees not only get to teach year 4 students, but also get to participate in clinical activities and interact with patients at the Prince of Wales Hospital, CUHK’s teaching hospital. On their free time, they get to explore the city on sightseeing and hiking outings with local friends and students.
“The timing of the programme is great as we have just finished our exams, things are fresh in memory and we’re getting to review and recap. Students here are very receptive and friendly, acting as our interpreters when we need to deal with local patients who don’t speak English.”
