Congrats to the five winners of the Poon Li Wai Hing Award for Student in Medical Education

The award aims to encourage initiatives in the application of teaching and technologies to promote the active engagement of students in teaching and curriculum development activities.



“I strongly believe in the power of student-educator partnerships and the significant impact it can have on curriculum design,” said Winson Chan (MBBS IV), who received the prize this month. Winson, a co-investigator in the project “Students as Co-Designers,” has taken the lead in developing pharmacological tables and flashcards to modernise the MBBS curriculum.



Separately, awardee Jing Chen (MBBS IV) was recognised for developing “It’s Not Just: Sexual Crimes,” a medical humanities pathway designed for MBBS II students to address and combat sexual misconduct in clinical and academic medicine. The project aims to create a more supportive environment for victims and to foster open and honest conversations in the field of medicine.



“I am dedicated to improving teaching and learning at HKUMed by influencing students to become competent educators,” said John Park (MBBS IV), who won the prize for his work in near-peer teaching with a particular emphasis on students from diverse backgrounds.



Organisers of the Pre-clinical and Clinical Near-Peer Teaching Programme, Teenie Wong (MBBS IV) and Helen Xiao (MBBS IV) received the award for their initiative that has delivered small group Zoom tutorials to more than 300 pre-clinical students. “We have set out to enhance formal teaching, promote knowledge integration, and foster collaboration between junior and senior students at HKUMed,” said Teenie. Co-organiser Helen added that the impact of the programme goes beyond mere knowledge transfer, and that she hopes the project will continue to grow at HKUMed and HKU more broadly.



Once again, congratulations to the five awardees for their outstanding contributions to medical education. Keep up the fantastic work!
