CUHK Summer Institute Activity 2017 – CUHK Eye Centre and CUHK Ophthalmic Research Centre Visit

 

CUHK Summer Institute is organized by the Office of Academic Links of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) during summer vacation for Hong Kong and international secondary school students.

Forty of the programme participants visited our CUHK Eye Centre and CUHK Ophthalmic Research Centre in Hong Kong Eye Hospital on 17th and 24th July 2017. The students not only got familiar with our daily clinical practices, training and education at CUHK Eye Centre, but also experienced our professional ophthalmic examinations, including corneal topography and optical coherence tomography.

In addition, the students explored our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities at CUHK Ophthalmic Research Centre.  They were also taught on human eye structure and common ocular diseases, and the demonstration on research techniques in ophthalmology.

We are much delighted to share our work and developments with the secondary school students. We hope this visit would inspire them in pursuing medicine as their career in future!
