Past Student's Testimonials

LEUNG Shih Ya,

Public Health Student

With a clear role of each student in our group, it makes our progress very efficient and productive despite the current restriction of face-to-face meetings.

TANG Chun Hei,

MBChB Student

This course made me reflect on what exactly is best for patients and showed me the need for innovation to solve the problems that patients face all the time that medical professionals may not be aware of. 

LEE Ho Fai,

Nursing student

During the lecture and group project, I think interprofessional collaboration is just like an enormous pie with different distinctive flavors in it and when you taste it, you can tell each of the flavors specifically.

CHU Lap Ting,

Pharmacy Student

In my perspective, the case studies and the group project were the most meaningful activities in this course. Through working with students from other disciplines, I am now able to understand my own professional limitations well.
