Short Description

At the vanguard of public health education, The JC School of Public Health and Primary Care of the Faculty of Medicine has designed a new Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSc in Public Health) that is the first undergraduate programme in Hong Kong of its kind. It provides students who have an interest in public health with valuable insight into population health issues. Concepts students can expect to grasp include the social determinants of health, environmental impact on health, healthy lifestyles, public health law and ethics, biostatistics and epidemiology fundamentals, emergency preparedness and disaster response, infectious diseases, and health services reform.

The curriculum of the BSc in Public Health Programme begins with Faculty Package courses, to let all students within the Faculty of Medicine share a largely common experience and gain broad exposure to related disciplines. Start from the second year, students take foundation courses in public health which include health ethics; public health methods and theories; and courses on contemporary health issues. In the later part of the programme, students are requested to complete at least 100 hours of field work and a research project with the guidance of a supervisor. This programme is benchmarked against world-class universities in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
