‘A Day @ Medical School’ at the University of Hong Kong


During the Easter holidays, several Year 12 students had the opportunity to sit in HKU’s MBBS Problem-Based Learning (PBL) Tutorial in order to get a taste of the learning style in the MBBS programme. They all found it to be a great experience and was very helpful in reviewing their Higher Education plans. See what the participants have said below.

PBL is an educational method that allows students to learn about medicine through dealing with real-life medical situations and case studies. We had the chance to sit in and observe a Year 1 HKU medical PBL class.

What interested me the most was about the organ donation system, and having a discussion on the pros and cons of having a monetary rewards system for organ donation, and the discussion between the students were unlike what I expected.
