Our Programme

MPhil and PhD

We conduct full-time and part-time Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) research programmes, administered by the Graduate Division of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences headed by Dr CHEN Li Jia Guy, with administrative support by Ms. Gi Gi Hung. ​

​We have established a MPhil and PhD education platform, pertaining to personal education and aiming for academic excellence. We provide an environment for medical degree graduates to advance basic science knowledge and to conduct both clinical and laboratory based research. We also accept graduates of life science disciplines to undertake research related to eye diseases and develop a career in medical sciences.​

Students can select research programmes from a wide spectrum of eye diseases in Cornea External Eye Diseases, Cataracts Refractive Errors, Glaucoma, Vitreo Retinal Diseases, as well as Orbital, Thyroid, Neurologic, Genetic and Children Eye Diseases. Students are accessible to all equipment and facilities in our research clinic and laboratories in ophthalmic imaging, microscopy, electrophysiology, molecular genomics, gene functions, cell and tissue culture, stem cells, experimental animals, and analytical biochemistry.​

​Currently, we have 16 MPhil and PhD students in our department. Many of them are recipients of post-graduate studentships from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
