The Dean of Chinese Medicine is assisted by three Associate Deans who respectively take care of matters pertaining to Teaching and Learning, Research, and International Collaboration. They lead SCM efforts towards realising the vision and mission of the School and contributing to the fulfilment of the University’s strategic goals.
CMTR is committed to quality education and impactful research in Chinese medicine. Through the two undergraduate programmes managed by the Division, viz. Bachelor of Chinese Medicine and Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Biomedical Science, and Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) in Chinese Medicine, the School has over the years nurtured a myriad of students who have made important contribution to the well-being of citizens and the overall development of Chinese medicine. The Division also takes pride in the impressive record of scientific publications and patented inventions from its academics, research personnel and research postgraduate students.
CLNC is responsible for overseeing the operation of the HKBU Chinese medicine clinical network, which currently comprises 16 clinics and a first-of-its-kind disease prevention and health management centre. Apart from meeting the public’s keen demand for safe and effective Chinese medicine treatments, the medical team of the Division has also set itself on a mission to conduct clinical research to inform their own practice, provide clinical training to students and engage in public health education and outreach.
DCPE is committed to offering continuing professional training opportunities to local and overseas Chinese medicine practitioners and related healthcare personnel. The taught postgraduate and sub-degree programmes managed by the Division are designed to equip students with the most up-to-date knowledge and applicable skills to meet the evolving needs of the industry. The teaching team draws on their wealth of clinical experience and research expertise and takes advantage of the School’s practicum base in Hong Kong to not only enrich students’ professional know-how, but also to broaden their horizons and encourage life-long learning.
TDD assumes a bridging function between the School and the industry in the sense that it drives, manages and facilitates the knowledge transfer activities at SCM to meet the pressing need for technological development in translational science. It also undertakes to optimise the School’s capacity for translational research by establishing strategic partnerships in the form of contract research, joint research platforms and research laboratories, etc. with local, Mainland and overseas enterprises and academic institutions.
SCMS is the administrative arm of the School, supporting the overall management of SCM and various school-level committees, such as Advisory Committee, School Board, Executive Committee and School Review Panel.
