We would like to recognize and congratulate our MPH Alumnus – Mui, Chi Hang Henry (MPH Class of 2020) who recently passed his Certified in Public Health (CPH) exam. Read more about Henry’s career journey and his experience with the CPH examination.
The HKU MPH is the first in the region and the only academic programme in Hong Kong fully accredited by CEPH, our graduates are eligible to take for the CPH examination and become professionally certified in public health.
“I am now working at Biomedical Engineering Services Section in Hospital Authority in Hong Kong, specializing in healthcare technology and medical equipment life cycle management in clinical engineering field and I obtained my bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering from CUHK in 2014. I am also a corporate member of The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).
Completing the CPH examination and obtaining CPH credential is a milestone for me to recognize my capability of attaining the professional standard in public health. It helps demonstrate my perception of the knowledge I have learnt in HKU MPH and broadens my horizon to observe contemporary healthcare issues from the angle of a professional public health organization. The broad range of public health contents in the examination, covering the topics from four concentrations of HKU MPH, constitutes the core standard body of knowledge which no doubt can help us adhere to professional values. For instance, the examination considers the concepts and scope of ethical and legal principles in public health domain, which is essential to become a qualified public health professional.
I believe the CPH credential can increase the recognition of public health professions and raise the awareness of public health issues, while it is also the benchmark to distinguish from other professionals in the field. As for me, it paves the foundation for my vision of cherishing the exploration of integrated care with emerging technologies for primary health and well-being in healthcare industry, and acts as the commitment for me to keep on with continuing professional development on public health issues.”
