Teaching and Research Division (CMTR)

Message from the Director

The Hong Kong Baptist University launched in 1998 the first UGC-funded undergraduate double degree programme, viz. the Bachelor of Chinese Medicine and Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Biomedical Science programme. In 2001, the School launched the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Hons) in Chinese Medicine programme, the first-ever and still the only programme of its kind in Hong Kong. We boast the most comprehensive higher education system in Chinese medicine in Hong Kong.

With the concerted efforts of staff and students, the Teaching and Research Division (CMTR) has made tremendous progress in the areas of teaching, research and provision of clinical services since its establishment. Recently, we have risen to the challenges of the 3-3-4 academic reform implemented in 2012-13. On the research front, we have made laudable achievements and important discoveries one after another. Our graduates have developed their careers in health care, research, teaching, administrative management and pharmaceutical industry, not only in Hong Kong but also in mainland China, Europe and North America. We take pride in their achievements and contribution to society.

We have been striving for internationalisation—we are committed to the promotion of international education in Chinese medicine as well as academic exchange and collaboration with non-local institutions, and we have been making keen efforts to embark on collaboration in life sciences with research institutes and bio-pharmaceutical enterprises in mainland China and overseas. We value the relationship with our alumni and we always seek to cement our ties with them. Our alumni are an important part of our endeavor to establish a Chinese medicine teaching hospital and enhance the Chinese medicine education in Hong Kong.

As the saying goes, "it takes a decade to grow a tree, but a century to nurture people". Looking ahead, CMTR will continue to stand on the shoulders of forerunners and take big strides forward. We will continue to provide quality Whole Person Education, and nurture Chinese medicine doctors with both skills and benevolence as well as a strong sense of social responsibility. We are confident that our knowledgeable and skillful graduates with a positive outlook on life will serve the community dutifully and diligently and make substantial contribution to the betterment of mankind.
