Medical Abbreviation References for Synchronous-learning by
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (MARSCUHK)
Aiming to provide medical related knowledge through an interesting way, MARSCUHK is an online learning platform launched by CU CHAMPION. With a search engine that includes various medical abbreviations, as well as the study card and question bank function, learners from different streams can easily find the information they need and consolidate what they have learnt by going through the self exercises. Taking advantage of the social media trend among youngsters, memes (funny graphics or videos that express a culturally relevant idea) are also created by students and posted on the MARS website, Instagram account and CU CHAMPION Facebook page.
