Awards and Grants

We celebrate exceptional achievements in project work by presenting the prestigious Poon Li Wai Hing Award for Student in Medical Education. This award serves to recognize and honor students who have demonstrated outstanding performance and excellence in their medical education projects, providing an additional incentive for students to strive for the highest level of achievement in their pursuits.

In addition to awards, we recognize the importance of financial support for students undertaking EdTech and SIMHSE projects, which is why we offer grants that students can apply for to fund their endeavors.
