  • HKU MPH - We Are Accredited!

    Following a comprehensive and rigorous review process, we are excited to announce that our MPH Programme is fully accredited as a public health programme with Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). CEPH is an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit schools of public health and public health programmes. CEPH acted to accredit our MPH programme at its council meeting in June 2022. The accreditation term is for five years, until 1 July 2027. Our programme’s initial accreditation date was recorded as 13 March 2020. This is a significant achievement for our programme and a reflection of hard work from our faculty and staff who worked tirelessly attending meetings and gathering data for the self-study and the CEPH Site Visit. The result was an astonishing achievement and a report demonstrating full compliance across all CEPH criteria. This CEPH accreditation attests to the quality of our MPH and we want to take this opportunity to thank you all for SPH members in helping our MPH programme achieve this important milestone.

  • Student Voice - Pang Cheuk Him Johnny

    After obtaining my bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from CUHK in 2020, I work in the government as a graduate biomedical engineer under the HKIE Scheme A. During the training to be a qualified biomedical engineer, I have the opportunity to rotate to different divisions within the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department and the Department of Health and face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The experience made me understand the importance of public health, especially from the government’s point of view. I am currently doing a part-time MPH in Health Economics, Policy and Management. I am grateful and honoured to be awarded the UGC Targeted TPg Programmes Fellowship. Being a recipient of this Fellowship gave me the recognition in further developing my career path in the healthcare industry, and greatly motivates me to strive for my best. I really enjoy this MPH program because it gives me the opportunity to explore and enrich my knowledge, learning from world-renowned academic experts and fellow aspiring classmates from different areas of the healthcare profession. I have had several tutorial classes and valuable discussions with experienced and knowledgeable classmates. This is truly a valuable and unique experience. I am also very interested in studying public health issues and policies in Hong Kong and around the world. I wish to make use of the knowledge I acquire in this program to develop my career in the government, and to make our healthcare system even better.

  • Student Voice - Jie Guo Rachel

    Hi there – my name is Rachel, I am currently a part-time Year One MPH candidate in the concentration of Health Economics, Policy and Management (HEPM). I am now working in a public institution, mainly for public relations, editorial and digital communications. I was born and raised in the Mainland, then moved to Hong Kong 10 years ago for my first Master’s degree in journalism and communication. My first decade in Hong Kong has brought me challenge, aspiration and dignity than I could ever dare to wish for. I think I am ready and eager to see what life will bring in the second decade ahead – MPH is my new adventure. I was privileged to be granted the UGC Targeted TPg Fellowships. I was truly grateful that Fellowships recognised multidisciplinary integration while I see myself as an “exception” case. For me, the MPH adventure is indeed challenging, but informative and totally rewarding. I can tell that the School of Public Health has put a lot of thoughts in designing the class, recognising interprofessional collaboration and communication, which are pivotal in our future endeavours. I am particularly interested in issues regarding health equity and justice. COVID-19 has shown us again that the patterns of power, privilege and inequity that run throughout the society are just recapitulated in this health crisis. And people from underprivileged background have been disproportionately affected. I wish to be better equipped with public health competencies and join hands with stakeholders towards better addressing equity and justice in health in the region.
