26 July 2012

 

The 12th and the last conferring ceremony of the Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine) offered by the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), was held on 14 July, 2012 at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong.   With the longterm partnershiop between RMITUniversity and HKBU, we have successfully nurtured over 500 graduates of the programme throughout the past 15 years of collaboration.  We were honoured to invite one of the co-founders of the programme, Dr. Simon Wong, Dean of the School of Continuing Education of HKBU, attending the ceremony as one of the honorable guests. During the ceremony, our honourable guests, Prof Lu Aiping, Dean of School of Chinese Medicine, HKBU, and Professor Peter Coloe, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, College of Science, Engineering & Health, RMIT University, Australia, opened the proceedings and presented the welcoming address respectively.  There are 27 graduates this year and around 200 guests attended the ceremony. 

Prof Lu Aiping, Dean of School of Chinese Medicine, HKBU, said, in the past decade since the establishment of the HKSAR, the School has witnessed considerable advancement in legislation, regulation, formal training and scientific research of Chinese medicine. Prof Lu believes there is no doubt that the development of Chinese medicine in Hong Kong has been picking up speed in the past years, and it has attracted attention of the international community.  We recently completed the revitalisation of the Lui Seng Chun building, a project which took over a year and considerable effort to execute. The over 80-year-old Grade I historic building officially opened in April this year as the University’s 14th Chinese Medicine clinic. Upholding the ancient tradition of Chinese medicine, the clinic will begin to provide a comprehensive range of quality Chinese medicine specialty services to the public from tomorrow, in addition to serving as an important historical landmark in the community. We have also spared no efforts in fostering the incorporation of Chinese medicine into the public medical and healthcare framework of Hong Kong.

Prof Lu encouraged the graduates to commit themselves to the development of Chinese medicine in both Hong Kong and overseas.

Prof Lu Aiping, Dean of School of Chinese Medicine, delivered a welcoming address in the ceremony.
