    I’m currently a part-time Year 1 MPH student in the Health Economics, Policy and Management (HEPM) concentration. I have been practising as a registered nurse in the Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care unit soon after I obtained my bachelor’s degree from HKU in 2018. Having five years of training to be a registered nurse and joining the health care team in a public hospital for three years, I am nurtured and obligated in providing quality health care service in Hong Kong. I have discovered interest in public health, where it is a mix of art and science in promoting health, preventing diseases and improving the quality of life on a large scale and thus I decided to pursue my studies in the MPH. Amidst the pandemic, I enjoy this journey and it has been one of the best decisions in life. People I have met here are all amazing and with a diverse background. It has been an incredible opportunity to connect with them and learn from them. Besides, the teaching team is professional and supportive. Not only have I gained knowledge related to study, but also the transferable skills for life. In pursuing my further studies, I wish to be better equipped to analyse, understand and address present and future public health challenges and to contribute towards the building of ethical and sustainable health systems.

    Health care is vital to all of us some of the time, but public health is vital to all of us all of the time”, a famous quote from Charles Everett Koop, an American pediatric surgeon and public health administrator in the 80s. I was first impressed by this quote to begin delving into the domains of Public Health. I am a part time MPH student in the concentration of Health Economics, Policy and Management. I am also a Graduate Biomedical Engineer working at a private hospital in Hong Kong. Working in the usual hustle and bustle of a high volume usage of medical equipment, it is no surprise to ponder about the underlying reasons and find out the demands for medical supports are much wider than everyone can think of. From the use of thermometers to anesthesia machines, it is difficult if not impossible for a normal person to stand for, whereby a clear mindset and positive attitudes towards the medical industry is of paramount importance, and this paves the way why Public Health is the right choice. Thanks for the grant of the UGC Targeted TPg fellowship, it nurtures me as a person of diverse thinking. The curriculum consists of core courses and concentration courses, even the debut course – principle of public health can be quite challenging yet interesting. I was given a host of opportunities to share experience from the workplace and through numerous research, this also enlightens my angles of critical thinking plus encourages my communication skills with teammates from all walks of life. The curriculums are designed to equip students with the knowledge they need to face whatever public health issues or emergencies arise, and this topic is especially in the spotlight during the outbreak of COVID19. My future aspiration is to acquire the knowledge and utilize the skills learned within the MPH courses and to stand out for career advancement in the public health field. It will be even ideal if the proposed activities brainstormed under the assignments can come true in one day!
